    Default no eth0, cant connect to wired router

    I know the first thing that will be told to me is read the forums but for the love of jebus i have been searching these forums to find the post that solved my problem last time but i cant find it. So i have to ask then i will bookmark the answer so to never ask again. I have an hp dv5000 series laptop running bt3 via usb. When i ifconfig, my eth0 does not show up. ifconfig up/down fails. A previous post had listed a command to type in that made bt discover my eth0 then i was able to dhcpcd to get my ip address and everything worked. I just cant find that command. Can anyone please point me to that post so i can bookmark it.

    since you didn't say what type of card it was I'm not sure if this will help but I had a similer problem with my marvel yukon nic. Anyhow if you go to marvels webpage they have new Linux drivers so you won't have to keep typing that cmd.

    All you have to do is add the e100 module to your kernel module autoload file and it will be loaded at boot or make a little script with those commands and add it to rc.local or some other start script.
