How is it that you installed a fresh copy of Slack 9. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author’s experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. Note that the baseTX media type is only available if supported by the adapter. The problem here is that your installation is looking for the 2. The mediaopt option can also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

Getting network card installed (modprobe 3c59x)

I’ve tried a couple older distributions so far Turbo Linux 6. I bought a 3com 3ctx NIC. Thanks all and good night. The system was working fine, running the same kernel version with Mandrake Linux 9.

Recent Drivers  MSI RS482M4 CHIPSET DRIVER

If that now shows your card, cheer for a while, and run “netconfig” to set it up for use with DHCP.

I will shut up, do some -ing, and I hope someone else will be able to help you. Having a problem logging in? I’ve downloaded files from 3com. Results 1 to 10 of 10 Thread: Browse Requests Reports Product Dashboard. Is ifconfig not showing it either???

[SOLVED] Network driver issue – 3Com 3cTX

Comment 11 Neil Horman If I knew it would be in the first one, I might do it. So thats it, if you need more info let me know, insight as to what files I must look into is appreciated as well as your thoughts on the DHCP theory. I rebuilt an old box a couple of weeks back using the debian net install and that NIC with no problems. MII transceiver found at address 24, status d. Recompiling your kernel will probably still solve the problem if you do it correctly, but it would probably not be necessary if you could find out why it was looking for the wrong dependency file in the first place.


However, the RedHat network scripts were fairly messed up, they kept trying to remap eth0 to eth2, and ended up calling one device instead of eth2 dev I can do more testing or even post the card to someone if that helps. If for example, I try to ping out eth0 3cit would send packets, you’d see nothing come out the NIC card, and the ping tool would report destination host unreachable.

If you power down your system prior to booting FreeBSD, the card should be configured correctly. Click Here to receive this Complete Guide absolutely free.

Comment 12 John Airey I would get both if I made any ping attempts.
