What happens... when hardware that is... is not?


I'm serious. This even happens on windows too. I have a Marvell Ethernet Card as a part of my laptop. The problem: Ubuntu nor Windows can tell if it's there or not.

I'd love to know how to install it on Windows too, if by any chance you know how.

You could try using the drivers for the Marvell Yukon Ethernet Controller. There are links to download the driver for winblows on this site: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Marvell_Yu...ler_d5373.html.

But that's part of the problem. Windows can't detect if the card is a device on the computer, meaning I can't install its drivers even if I have the drivers. I sent the support team at marvell the following info...

Quote:
Marvell Ethernet Adapter is not found on the machine even though Gateway says it is there (readme says that I should look in Other Devices, but there are no Other Devices, nor is it under the Network Adapter). For more information about my laptop, please check the MX6931 notebook over at the gateway support site.
I'll even give you a screenshot. -_-

And there's nothing with an exclaimation mark in the device manager? From what I see your netcard could be either the Intel or the Marvell, both types are used for your model. I would give the intel driver a go, only 1 of 2 things can happen, either it works or it doesn't. Here's the link to the driver(s): http://www.support.gateway.com/suppo...m=MX6931&st=kw

Have you checked the bios to see if the ethernet port is enabled? And can you post a screenshot of your device manager.

Thanks, enabling the Internal LAN via the BIOS did it. -_- Man, I'm dumb.
