Ethernet and Mic problems with Debian on eeepc701.
 
Hi Everybody,

I'm running Debian squeeze on my Asus eeepc 701, with kernel version number "2.6.32-5-686".
According to the official website, my netbook should be totally supported by Debian, but unfortunately something is wrong...

In particular:

(1) The Ethernet card is not reveled by ifconfig.
The System seems to ignore totally the existence of my eth card.

(2) The mic doesn't work with Skype/Audacity.

Please, can someone suggest some possible solution?

I think it should be good to know that:
a) Before installing Debian squeeze, on my netbook there was the previous version of Debian, and there were no problems;
b) I am sure to have activate in the BIOS all the hardware devices needed;
C) I have already searched on Google, without any results.
d) The main problem is the n1.

Thanks a lot!

Cheers :)
Wario.

I have no problems with Debian testing repos on my AntiX 8.5 install on my eeepc 701SD netbook.

Dear rokytnji,

Thanks for the suggestion.
I will consider to install AntiX, but now I am trying to configure a Slackware system (it works really well!).

Thanks however, surely I will install AntiX "in case of emergency" :)

Cheers,
Wario.
