View Full Version : [ubuntu] cant get the lan and wireless lan to work

June 10th, 2010, 04:05 AM
installing 10.04 on a buddy's Averatec 6200 laptop. It installed fine and desktop is up and running. The only problem is i cant get the lan to work. its simply not finding it. I went through the help file and troubleshooting section in 10.04. i plugged the laptop into my modem and reset the modem. The cable light comes on the modem but not the pc light. i tried differant cables, used to same cable to hook up to my 10.04 desktop pc (it did without any problem). all i can figure is the ethernet hardware isnt installed or has wrong driver. i did find the lan info with the troubleshooting guide.

silicon intergrated system [SiS] SiS900 pci fast ethernet (rev.91).
RaLink RT2500 802.11g cardbus/mini pci (rev 01).

any help and/or advise would be greatly appreicated. Still pretty new to ubuntu but i really like it..thanks peeps:p
