Which distro are you using?

Are you using a Desktop or a Laptop?

What is the output of?: lspci
What does it say against "Network Controller"?

If nothing shows, what is the output of?: lspci

From the cli(command line) as root do;
Quote:
lspci -vv
ifconfig -a
Please post only relative parts of the outputs for the requested commands.

Please do a 'man lspci' and 'man ifconfig' to get a understanding for the commands.

FYI:
I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem or query.

 Plus, LQ has a good spell check & dictionary of words so your posts will be proper without misspelled words.

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;



1 Linux Documentation Project
2 Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3 Linux Command Guide
4 Bash Beginners Guide
5 Bash Reference Manual
6 Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7 Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8 LinuxSelfHelp
9 Utimate Linux Newbie Guide

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
