what does lspci tell you - can you determine the chipset of the NIC ?

Cheers,
Chris

re: need to upgrade network card driver

I'm in the same boat.
`lspci` reveals Ethernet controller, Intel, unknown device 1075 (and 1076)

Is the e1000 driver appropriate? (I've read this somewhere else today)

Solved.

I downloaded the e1000 driver from Intel, rebuilt from source, installed and I'm off!

Got the source for e1000 from:
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...ileName=e1000-
and built. I added the following to my /etc/modules.conf file:
alias eth0 e1000

and I was able to add the interface, `insmod` it, then `service network start`. Ready to rock.
