    EeePc 1008HA ethternet

    Hey,

    I just got my new Asus Eeepc 1008HA today and of course the first thing i did was installing Ubuntu 9.04. Now im having problems with my internet connection, wirded and wireless.

    I of course researched that topic alot and there are alot of similar posts, and even Ubunut has a way of fixing it. Ubuntu says i would need to remove my battery, and then it should work. Only problem is, the new Eeepc uses the Seeshell design and it is not easy to just remove the battery. I cant acces the router with my firefox either.

    So is there any other way of getting my internet to work? Or am i going to need to open the netbook?

    I would post a couple of outputs like ifconfig but since i cant just copy it i didnt do it right now. If its need it i will of course provide that information.



    Thank you

    Edit: Just found out, opening the netbook is out of the question, so its impossble to remove the battery.


    Major Update: I got the wireless internet working on my 1008HA. I just downloaded the 'linux-backports-modules' *.deb file and the wireless workes. After i updated the wireless didnt work again so i downloaded the *.deb for the new kernel, installed that also and now it wokrs again. But this still isnt good, since i really need the LAN to work..

    The *.deb for the Kernel that gets installed with 9.04 can be downloaded here :

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/...c/2.6.28-11.11


    I hope anyone knows how to enable the lan.

    Hi,
    From, here: http://sachachua.com/wp/2009/06/09/a...omment-page-1/

    the steps to enable the wired network on the eeePc are:

    Once you install, you need to grab the AR813X-linux-v1.0.0.9.tar.gz package from http://partner.atheros.com/Drivers.aspx (use a usb device,
    because you probably don't have network)

    Then:
    Code:
    tar -xzvf AR813X-linux-v1.0.0.9.tar.gz
    cd src
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo insmod atl1e.ko
    (the last two steps must be redone if you do a kernel upgrade)

    The wireless network starts working by installing the

    linux-backports-modules-jaunty

    package. That is, with the wired network, do:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-jaunty
    I've just got a 1008ha. This are other tunning stuff I've done:

    1 - Reduce all icons, so all programs will look better in the
    small screen:

    Code:
    Edit the 
    
    /usr/share/themes/Human-Clearlooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc 
    
    file and add, after the initial commentaries (or anywhere else):
    
    gtk-icon-sizes="panel-menu=16,16:gtk-menu=16,16:gtk-button=16,16:gtk-small-toolbar=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=16,16:gtk-dialog=16,16:gtk-dnd=16,16"
    This will make all icons smaller, even the menus. It looks nice.
    Furthermoe, I've removed the lower pannel and added the "show desktop" and list of running applications to the top pannel, so I get some more screen at the botton.


    EDIT: Appart from the network cards, which get working using the steps above, everything else, up to what I've noticed, is working out of the box, the camera and most of the Fn keys included, some of there are not, but only the ones I don't know what should be doing (brightness, volume and suspend keywords work). I'm very satisfied with the whole behaviour.

    sorry.. but I'm just a newbie in compiling drivers. I could not really get out of this.

    cannot compile the driver:


    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:/media/disk-1/Users/kali/Desktop/netbook linux/network/src$ sudo make install
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/build SUBDIRS=/media/disk-1/Users/kali/Desktop/netbook linux/network/src modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `linux/network/src'.  Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic'
    make: *** [default] Error 2
    please, any hint? :'(

    Re: EeePc 1008HA ethternet

    I just got a 1005HA, will this work for it too? That should would for the AR8132(LAN) I assume, but is there one for the AR9285(Wifi) somewhere? thanks.

    EDIT: oh, I kinda skipped over the whole "install the backports thing". My bad.

    Anyway, same question as kaliaragorn, since i've never installed anything from source before. What all do I need?

    For the 1005HA I think you must follow exactly the same steps as posted before. The hardware of the two netbooks is the same.

    Re: EeePc 1008HA ethternet

    Another option would be to upgrade the kernel. My 1005HA came today
    and I installed 9.04. Neither wireless nor ethernet worked. I googled and found your solution but also found a recommendation to update the kernel to 2.6.30 generic. I found a deb and it installed flawlessly. Wireless came right up. I haven't checked wired yet, don't have a cable, but this was easier than some of the other options.
