    Default Network Hardware Not Initiated/Installed

    My Dell Latitude D620 has a Broadcom 57xx Gigabit Ethernet and an Intel 2200bg wireless controller. Both are not noticed upon boot. Do an ifconfig and all that is listed is loopback.
    Looked in networking hardware in system (?) menu and also loopback was the only one listed.
    I plan on testing my one of many external wireless cards later today to see if they function.
    Thanks

    MicroJay,

    Type the follow in the console:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# /etc/init.d/networking start
    I've just check BT4b on a Dell D500, D620 and D630 all work fine so far.

    Thank you!
    I did that and it worked. The Intel 2200bg is set up as eth1 and the Broadcom did populate when the command was run as eth0.

    Testing other cards...
    These did not work...
    Senao NL-2511CD Plus EXT2 (Prism 2.5)
    eHome EH101 - who knows what chipset...it was free!

    These did work...
    ZyXEL G-102v2 (Atheros ath0)
    Linksys WPC54G ver3 (Broadcom wlan0)
    Netgear MA521 (Realtek wlan0)

    All are PCMCIA (PCCARD) wireless network cards

    Try this:

    root@bt:~# ifconfig ath0 up

    or if you want it in monitor mode

    # ifconfig ath0 down
    # wlanconfig ath0 destroy
    # wlanconfig ath create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor
    # ifconfig ath0 up

    to put it back in normal mode, do everything again, but replace monitor with managed
