network driver in Fedora Core 11 on Dell OptiPlex GX620
Hello All,
I am searching for a network driver (wired) for Dell OptiPlex GX620.
it's a Broadcom BCM5751.
Any ideas where can I find one? :)
Or, if there is anything?

Welcome to LQ:
You can get a linux driver from the broadcom support page.
But what makes you think you don't already have it?

The driver is called tg3, you can list all the drivers used with


entered into a terminal

IIRC: fedora needs you to configure the ethernet card before use.

show us the result of entering


into a terminal.

Double Post, yeah, sorry.
I guess that you saw my other post.
As I said, my mistake, The network card was disabled in the BIOS :/
Everything is working GREAT even with compiz FULL ON :)
Thank you.
Although, I now installed it on a VMware on my wifes Lenovo 3000.
It finds the Wired very well, but it can't find the Wirless which is Intel Pro Wireless 3495AB ...
Any ideas for that? :O
