    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.

    Please, if you can, check if the wired network works and tell us. This is a good solution indeed.

    I have installed the new kernel (2.6.30) on my 1005ha and wireless works. Wired however doesn't. In fact, compiling the AR813X driver fails as well (works for 2.6.29 and 28 though).

    Now, the main advantage of the 2.6.30 kernel (according to my experience) is that video performance improves significantly when coupled with the 2.7.1 intel driver.

    BTW if somebody manages to make wired network work with this kernel and this eth card please let us know

    The solution I posted before is kernel-independent. It should work for the newest kernel, if the wired network is still not supported.

    I know it should, but for some reason it doesn't for me... With 2.6.28, 2.6.29 works flawlessly but with 2.6.30 I get:

    what am I missing?

    Re: EeePc 1008HA ethternet

    I have a new 1005HA, but I can't even start worrying about the network since neither my touchpad nor a USB mouse works. I booted from a Kubuntu 9.04 USB stick. It boots up fine and brings me to the desktop. Then I'm stuck. The touchpad and mouse work just fine in XP. Would Ubuntu be that different from Kubuntu in this regard?

    No, it shouldn't... I am using Kubuntu 9.04 in fact, but I installed it directly. I never "live booted".

    Thumbs down Re: EeePc 1008HA ethternet

    For those people trying to compile the AR813X driver (v1.0.0.9) against kernel 2.6.30+, you will need to modify kcompat.h from:
    #define IRQ_HANDLED
    #define IRQ_NONE
    to
    #define IRQ_HANDLED 1
    #define IRQ_NONE 0
    Also, don't use the atl1c driver from 2.6.30+ as it doesn't work - I couldn't get any DHCP assignment through the driver, although NetworkManager tried valiantly when the ethernet cable was detected as plugged in. Also, don't try and unload the atl1c driver. It locked up my netbook and then when I rebooted, it did something to disable the actual Attansic chip. The ethernet chip couldn't be detected until I went through and played with disabling and re-enabling it through BIOS.

    Re: EeePc 1008HA ethternet

    It turned out the unetbootin program on my gentoo linux box had a bug. I installed the most recent daily build of 9.10 ubuntu NBR on my usb stick using unetbootin on a windows box and it booted fine.

    I can report that wireless works out of the box on my 1005HA. I haven't tested a wired connection yet.
