Abit IG-80 Integrated Gigabit NIC not reconized


Hey guys. I recently booted up Knoppix 3.8 to check out my hardware config before installing a distro on this box. Come to find out, Knoppix couldn't find and configure my onboard NIC on my Abit IG-80 motherboard. The Model that shows up in the Windows Device Manager is.... "IC Plus IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet Adapter". This sounds rather obscure to me, as opposed to broadcom and the like.

Any ideas?

lspci is a command, run it from a terminal. It will show information about devices on the PCI bus. It may show what chipset the NIC uses.

Ran LSPCI -


I'm trying to use Gentoo 2005.0 right now and it doesn't detect it either... I get....

Ethernet Controller: Sundance Technology Inc: Unknown Device 1023 (rev 41)

I tried to modprobe sundance, run net-setup and then ifconfig eth0 and it still cannot detect eth0. Any ideas?

I too run gentoo on a few boxes. The latest kernel I have running (2.6.11-hardened) doesn't seem to support any sundance gigabit chipsets. There is sundance alta support, but this is a 10/100 chipset. It looks like it's not supported by the kernel. I bought a few Gigabit cards from newegg a few months back, they were less than $20 bucks and they work great in a debian firewall. If you'd like I'll find out what model they were.

Thanks Twsnnva. I actually spent a few hours with a guru in the gentoo IRC channel last night and he came to a similar conclusion. It turns out that IC Plus does offer a driver, but has to be built from source and kernal patched - not an easy task when still running from the Gentoo universal Live/install CD! I'm in way over my head, so I think I may just try and find myself a decent gigabit NIC - if you have any suggestions of good chipsets and PCI cards I'm all ears.

Not a problem. Here's a link to the cards I got. It'll use the sk98lin module. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127134

Like I said I use these as the interfaces on a firewall. There are about 35 websites and a mailserver hosting for each domain behind it, not to mention about 15-20 users using the other interface for daily activities. I no longer work there, but the new admin say's it's been working great.
