Help setup network

Postby cyber wolf » Sat Mar 08, 2008 14:32

Ok just installed sabayon 3.4 mini edition but cant get my internet setup through ethernet.
As root i typed net-setup in the konsole but it just seems to clear the whole page
When i type lspci it shows my ethernet adapter is:
intel 82801i (ich9 family) gigabit ethernet controller (rev 02)

Can anyone help me get it setup please? i dont know much about linux so please make instructions as simple as possible.
If you need anymore hardware information just say.
thanks

ok ive read around and seen some people installing an e1000 driver to fix thier problem. Would i need to do this? If so could someone guide me through the process please

edit: Iv'e done some more searching and might need an e1000 ich9 or e1000e driver.
By the way the ifconfig -a doesnt show an eth0 and ifconfig eth0 says no such device so its not detecting the ethernet controller for some reason.
lsmod shows the e1000 driver but im thinking i might need a different or updated version to get it to work.
Or i could be on the totally wrong track because as you can tell im a total linux noob.

Anybody got any idea?
