Ethernet Card Not recognised

Postby kamicota » Fri Jul 18, 2008 5:19

Hi Again ALL
Tried Sabayon LiveDVD (also PCLinuxOS 2008 Minime and PCLINuxOS 2007)
All do NOT find the Ethernet card--->>>

This is on an Asus P5KPL-CM MB (Quad core) with a --->>>
Atheros AR8121/AR8113 GIGABIT Ethernet card

Any ideas to solve this OR do I just install totally XP even though 220GB of hard drive is set up for Linux with /, swap and /home

Cheers for years
Colin :oops: :roll:

I believe kernel 2.6.26 and madwifi-ng is all you need for that

I saw an issue with atheros a couple of days ago and the solution was to do update-pciids and reinstall madwifi.
Anyway, seems Asus has a linux driver: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?product=1&SLanguage=us-en&type=map&model=P5KPL-CM

I will look at this --->>>The "+" symbol represents folder with files attached inside. Clicking the "+" symbol will expand the folder or "-" symbol to hide it. You can find the latest driver or utility needed based on your operating system.
There are 2 download servers available on ASUS Download Site - Global and China. Each server provides the same content no matter where you download from, except for the speed which you are connected to.

Once I pluck up courage to try again

Info from another Linux Forum--->>> I understand that NO Linux distribution supports the Altheros chip.

Let's hope the link for drivers don't fail.
Download http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5KPL-CM/LinuxDrivers.zip and extract it.
Enter the folder LinuxDrivers/L1e_Lan and open a console.
Install unrar and do unrar e l1e-l2e-linux-v1.0.0.4.rar
Then, compile the driver with KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make
Copy the file atl1e.7 to parent directory: cp atl1e.7 ../atl1e.7 (make install will not work if you don't do this...).
Finally, KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make install

Hope it works.
