No internet Dimension E520


Will boot to live CD after a bunch of ATA errors but the more important thing is no internet.

tried lspci dmesg and it shows nothing. Also went into device manager and there is a bunch of unknowns. Also thru menu tried to setup net and all that is there is my dialup modem.

Any ideas?

I ask lot of questions sorry I work tech support and it kinda habbit

is it a FBSD live cd? I know your profile says FreeBSD but I wasn't sure if maybe you were trying something else like ubuntu, mepis, or suse

if it's FBSD I don't think I can really be of much help to you I've never worked with any BSD distro
but I am curious, can you use NDISWrapper to install the drivers for your NIC? or will that not work on BSD?
