    Default No eth0!! (..and yes, i've read FAQ)

    Hi I've used B|T V1.0 before and even had it installed to my laptop before. I recently installed B|T V2.0 Final to a partition on my Dell Inspiron 2200. Nothing seems to identfify the Intel PRO 10/100 VE Ethernet NIC.

    I tried booting

    'linux acpi=off'
    'ifconfig eth0 up'
    eth0: Error while getting interface flags: No such device

    'Ifconfig -a' lists: ath0, lo, sit0 and wifi0 but that's it.... no eth0!!

    Tried booting with no usb or pcmcia cards in case of conflicts same thing....

    'lspci' does identify it as an Intel PRO 10/100 card.

    I never had any trouble with the V2.0 Beta live CD. Any Ideas what could be wrong???

    Default ideas.... anybody???

    nobody has an idea what could be wrong?? There must be some part that I can edit or a tarball with drivers? Not exactly an uncommon NIC....

    is the e100 driver loaded? (try lsmod).
    if not, modprobe e100.

    well >> there's 2 case

    1 your card is supported
    >>> maybe the driver is not load or don't exist, find the name of driver(and dl if u dont have it) and try
    >>> if exist remove the old driver with
    lsmod | grep nameofdriver, if any appears type modprobe -r nameofolddriver
    >>> install new driver by untar,make all, make install ,depmod -a, modprobe nameofnewdriver
    >>> ifconfig eth0 up

    normally will be good


    2 your card is not suportted with linux drivers.... maybe if it's just a "surf only card" and not "for doing good job card" you can just use ndiswrapper with your windows driver, but i hate this , use a piece of MS code in linux is really shit, ethically speaking lol....
