07 Spring unable to detect ethernet cards on Asus M2V mobo


L1 gigabit ethernet adapter, and
Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 mod NC100
ASUS M2V mobo
"No device can be found for this connection type."

When I try to get MCC to detect either ethernet card, I get the above error message.

Under MCC-->Hardware-->Look at and configure the Hardware, Mandriva correctly identifies both ethernet connections.

Under MCC-->Network and Interface-->Set up a new interface-->Ethernet, I get the message. As a side note, there are no old interfaces to delete. I know that sometimes causes hiccups, but it's not the case here. I'm stumped.

Thanks for any assistance,

Charles

Near the bottom of the Information pane (right) under Misc, you should see a module name listed? For the Network everywhere NC100 adapter, the module name should be tulip. I do not know about the L1 gigabit ethernet adapter.

Open a terminal window, su to make yourself the root user, then run:
Code:
lsmod
This should list the installed modules. Check that the tulip module is loaded as well as the module for the L1 gigabit adapter. If they are not, try to install them with modprobe modulename. To install the tulip module the command is:
Code:
modprobe tulip
If you are then able to set up your Internet connection in MCC, add the module names to your /etc/modprobe.conf file (alias tulip eth0 - use eth1 for the other module). After this your NIC drivers should load at boot time with no intervention from you.

In the modprobe.conf file, tulip is eth0. Tulip also shows up in the output of lsmod. Now, in MCC-->Look at and configure hardware, when I highlight the Ethernet everywhere card, there are two options in the lower right

1) Set current driver options
2) Run config tool

When I select 1, it responds "This driver has no configuration parameter." When I select 2, it goes through all the motions and even says the connection is working, but it isn't- I guess that's because of the missing configuration parm.

With regard to the network everywhere (tulip) adapter:

To what device is this adapter connected (router, ISP's modem, or another computer)?

The configuration tool believes it has correctly configured your network adapter.

When you get to the third screen in the configuration tool, did you choose automatic IP or manual configuration?

In the fourth screen is the option to Get DNS servers from DHCP check marked? If it is, do you see IP addresses for DNS server 1 and DNS server 2 (they will be shaded)? If you chose Manual configuration in screen 3, did you clear the option (or was it already cleared) to Get DNS servers from DHCP and enter the IP addresses for the DHCP servers yourself in screen 4?

In the fifth screen, did you choose to start the connection at boot time?

Have you successfully established a network connection using this adapter before (either on this computer or another)? Did you use the same CAT5 (Network) cable?

Your answers to these questions may help determine what the trouble is.

The adapter is attached to a Toshiba Cable Modem (that modem and network cable is being used on a different box to post these messages). On the third screen, I chose automatic configuration. On the fourth screen, DNS servers 1 and 2 are shaded. Yes, it is set up to connect at boot time. You asked about the history of the card. It was used in an old Win98 system that I no longer have (AMD K6-2 333 based). I also temporarily ran an earlier version of Mandrake on that system with this card successfully.

Figured it out! Sorta...

I dumped the ethernet cable, and substituted a USB cable to the modem. The internet came right up.

This time I decided to try working with the L1 gigabit ethernet adapter. I found a file that will allow Mandriva to detect the adapter. Now I can't find the link. Anyhow, the file is actually a zipped directory. The directory is installed in my home directory. The following is a copy and paste from the terminal.

[charles@localhost home]$ ls -la
total 32
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Sep 12 09:31 ./
drwxr-xr-x 24 root adm 4096 Sep 14 02:15 ../
drwx--x--x 2 charles charles 4096 Feb 17 2007 atl1-2.0.7-linux-2.6.20/
drwx--x--x 38 charles charles 4096 Sep 14 03:57 charles/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Aug 2 23:32 guest -> /home/charles/
drwx------ 2 root root 16384 Aug 2 23:20 lost+found/
[charles@localhost home]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost home]# cd /atl
bash: cd: /atl: No such file or directory
[root@localhost home]# cd /atl1-2.0.7-linux-2.6.20
bash: cd: /atl1-2.0.7-linux-2.6.20: No such file or directory
[root@localhost home]#

This has got to be a newbie error. Why does it say the directory does not exist? If I use the GUI, I can see it and open it. Also, the readme file says to install the file, simply type sudo make install. Is that supposed to be typed verbatim or is it shorthand for something longer? Sudo looks like it implies you have to switch to su mode.

Charles.

No need to su to root. Just do this as your non-root self:

$ cd
$ cd atl1-2.0.7-linux-2.6.20
$ su -c 'make install'
<enter root password when prompted>

(BTW, you erred when you added the leading slash to the directory name.)
