Hi,

I have a computer here which is rather old. It is a Sony Vaio. The ethernet didn't work under Ubuntu 10.10, but it was listed in the PCI devices. Now, with Ubuntu 11.04, is not even on the list.

I think that that motherboard can have either a Marvell LAN or an Intel. I would say it is an Intel 10/100 (see later).

I would think that it was a hardware issue if I didn't see it working in Windows, because I find it surprising to have problems with ethernet drivers (all the problems I had to deal with in the past were most likely to be related to graphic card driver, wireless, and things more obscure).
