Driver problem ...

Post the results, if you need help to understand what it is saying.

For the drivers, assuming they are not compiled into the kernel, run the command 'su lsmod' the list may be long, depending on your configuration. You can post that also if you need help with the drivers.

If the drivers are in question, then we need to know the hardware. Run the command 'lspci' and post the results.

I've got a similar problem. Just installed UBUNTU Server over the weekend, but I can't get networking to work. 'ifconfig' says only the Loopback is present. The 'lshw' command says I've got a 'network UNCLAIMED' for the Netlink BCM5906M Fast Ethernet PCI Express. Where can i get the driver for this hardware??
