Yeah, I did. That's what I'm saying. When I manually loaded the drivers it did not add the hardware to ifconfig.

Above is a old kernel test readout of mine back in 2011 in Antix

I don't know why you cannot copy and paste a readout from rox terminal which is used in AntiX along with urxvt. Did you md5sum check your AntiX downloaded iso before burning the cd at slow 4x speed? You should be able to get online with a ethernet cable using wicd or ceni in AntiX also. But connection on Ethernet cable should have carried over from live session and the connection should have been automatic also (running live).

Also. Do not run inxi as root or sudo user. You will cut off the readout with a bunch of n/a then.
Just run it as a user like I showed in my above readout.

Edit: just to show I am not the only one who has no trouble with AntiX and your

There are 10 pages of folks running the same gear as you with no problems.

TTY1 is why

No WiFi card, just an RJ45 card, which is the problem.

It is on the live CD. I would have waited to bother, but there's things on the drive needing recovery (it's currently got windows 98 on it)

Live CD and I don't like logging into TTY with the "user"

Connect through command line then.

I never tried

Code:
 ceni
through tty1.

EditZ:But I did my core installs using ethernet cable to download xorg and other needed packages so not sure why your hardware does not support 8139too like everyone else does in the link I showed.

I think that you are going to need another network card. The output from lspci shows the device ID as [01ec:0139]. I have not been able to locate a kernel module that supports that device. That was also the conclusion here

Hi...

I've got an older SMC (EN5251BE chip) card that you can have for free, if you'd like to try it out. I've had it sitting here in my closet for a few years and I can't remember if I've even tested it. I think it does work, though. If you'd like to mail it to you, let me know and I can send you an e-mail if you can't IM me.

Regards...

And this is why I like the Linux community. Most of us are nice and giving. Lord help us when Microsoft pisses all their customers off to Linux.

I might have an old one sitting in the office, but it'll take some digging. I'll let you know if I need it, thanks.

Hi..

Praise God for what you do see in me 'cause it ain't because of me, I can assure you of that!
