I have read the thread about NVIDIAnForce drivers but still I am having troubles.
I have a asus A7N8x motherboard with the onboard network card: NVIDIA nForce MCP Networking Adaptor. I am using Mandrake 8.1. I installed the NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.mdk82up_2.4.18_6.athlon.rpm .
I used the command rpm -ivh NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.mdk82up_2.4.18_6.athlon.rpm
... it seemed to install ok. It says it is installed. However, i cannot set up a lan connection ( I am trying to connect my linux machine to a DLink and then to the internet - and this works ok with my other machine - with linux 8.1 but a different network card)
It appears that my netrwork card is not recognized.. using Harddrake.. it shows nothing for network cards. When i use the "connection wizard", I am promped to choose a driver form a list .. but I cannot see how I can choose the NForce Drivers.. there is no browse feature in this gui.
I checked to see where the driver file was.. and found it in lib/kernal/drivers/lan .. it is there.. but i checked the permissions and they are not set to execute. Could this be the troulbe??
thank you in advance.. each time I have posted a question here.. a very kind person has quickly rlied with very helpful advice.
Which DLink card do you have? From other posts (and chatting toa colleague with one of these cards) I believe that the "+" cards tend not to be supported. eg the DLink 650 appears to work fine, but the 650+ doesn't install.
I am using D-Link DI-704. On my other machine with mandrake 8.1 and a different network card it works ok. I thoguh the problem was more that the ethernet card si simply not recognized... thoguh i do not know
