Many many years ago my network adapter failed but was still recognized by the operating system. I assume it was just the output drivers. It was a PCI card and was easily replaced but now days most are part of the motherboard.

Gentlemen and Ladies,

I am now, officially, a dodderer.

going upstairs to the machine is hard work, a solutioneis being worked on.

typing onto the tablet what I see on the terminal is painstaking too, and, more to the point. very slow.

I'll try a picture again for lspci command.

I to use. wifi dongle when I first got tthe machine, without success. As the hub was in the room below me it was easy enough to run a cable.

I've not looked inside this machine, but I will tomorrow.

Hi All, There is no network card, or any additional card.

Michaelk your answer is:

00:19.0 Ethernet controller Intel Corpoation 82579LM Gigabit Network connection (Lewisville) (rev 04)

However, I plugged in my wifi dongle and Voila! I am connected.

I leave this for a day or two then shut the thread

Thanks for you patience

Chris

The Intel 82579LM uses the e1000e module. Check out the output of the dmesg command to see if there are any errors for the adapter. You might see other messages other then the network adapter.

dmesg | grep Intel


You can try loading the module (as root)
modprobe e1000e

Congratulations! The force of good has won out, over the force of evil, once again

It's even possible that the ethernet device came alive, and the Wi-Fi is still missing drivers and thus not working.

You probably don't have my extreme level of curiosity, to dig into IP commands and message logs.

Just out of curiosity, if the computer is upstairs and you generally don't go up there, how do you access/use it remotely?

Hi michaelk

I go upstairs when no other option is avilable.


I haven't ever acqess the linux machine remotely, and don't know how to.

I wait until I have batch of things to do before the ascent. ��

I've forgotten most of what I thought I knew.

I keep notes all over theplace, can't find them when I want them
