    Asus NX1001 card

    I have two network cards on my computer:
    ASUS NX1001 and Realtek RTL 8111/8168B

    For some reason I cannot get any one of them to work! I tried to install Realtek driver from the web and nothing happened! Asus has a CD with drivers for kernels 2.4 and 2.6, but none of the commands in README file work!

    I am a beginner in this and I have searched around for AGES trying to get an answer for either two and I still can't find anything that would help me.

    EDIT: I found the README file for Asus network card. None of this actually want to work.
    Code:

             ONBOOT=yes

             BROADCAST=207.200.5.255 
             NETWORK=207.200.5.0 
             NETMASK=255.255.255.0 
             IPADDR=207.200.5.2 
                   
     
    3. Driver Parameter 
    ------------------- 
      If you want to change the link speed, you could use parameter after  
      insmod command. 
       
      insmod NX1001.o <optional parameter>    ; add parameter 
     
      ======================================================================== 
       example: insmod NX1001.o media=100mbps_hd 
       or        insmod NX1001.o media=3 
       or        insmod NX1001.o media=1,2,3,4    ; for 4 cards or NX1001 
      ========================================================================               
       
      Parameter Description 
      ===================== 
      You can install this driver without any addtional parameter. However, if  
      you are going to have extensive functions then it is necessary to set  
      extra parameter. Below is a list of the command line parameters supported  
      by the Linux device driver. 
     
    media=xxxxxxxxx            - Specifies the media type the NIC operates at. 
                      autosense    Autosensing active media. 
                      10mbps_hd    10Mbps half duplex. 
                      10mbps_fd    10Mbps full duplex. 
                      100mbps_hd    100Mbps half duplex. 
                      100mbps_fd    100Mbps full duplex. 
                      0        Autosensing active media. 
                      1        10Mbps half duplex. 
                      2        10Mbps full duplex. 
                      3        100Mbps half duplex. 
                      4        100Mbps full duplex. 
                      By default, the copper devices operate at  
                      autosense, the fiber devices operate at 
                      100Mbps full duplex. 
                      Note that, the fiber adapter only support  
                      100Mbps half/full duplex types.     
     
      If wanting to change speed, this driver needed to be unloaded and reloaded with  
      new media parameter. 
     
    flowctrl=[0|1]            - Specifies the flow control function. 
                      0    Disable flow control.     
                      1    Enable flow control.

    Driver-dawg is here and we'll solve the mystery. First of all, this antique is mostly useless:

    It was written in 2005 (!!) which is 1492 in Linux years. It does, however, offer some clues. Here is a quote from the nx1001_main.c file:
    // 04/13/2004 {"Sundance Technology Alta"},
    {"ASUS NX1001 Network Adapter"},
    {"ASUS NX1001 Network Adapter" },
    {0,}, /* 0 terminated list. */
    'Sundance' you say?? We have a module named sundance in Ubuntu. Here is its modinfo:

    Let's see if your device is claimed by sundance. Please open a terminal and run and post:

    uname -rp
    The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \.

    Are you planning somehow to run both cards at the same time? Is the Realtek not working as expected?

    Re: Absolutely helpless about Asus NX1001 card.

    Okay I did some tap tapping into terminal and here are the results.

    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0200
    04:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 01)
    05.00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Sundance Technology Inc / IC Plus Corp IC Plus IP100A Integrated 10/100 Ethernet MAC + PHY [13f0:0200] (rev 31)
    Code:
    uname -rp
    3.2.0-29-generic x86_64
    I am still using Ubuntu 12.04 on the PC mainly because it stays idle due to no internet connection.
    The realtek card didn't even want to work under Windows. For some reason whenever I tried to install the driver for it, it changed its own name and declined that the driver was correct. Anyhow, that's the reason I got the Asus card and it works fine under Windows (because it has an auto-installer), but can't get it to work here just yet.

    I don't plan to run both of them together, just one so I can start using ubuntu with internet. Right now I'm typing with laptop on my lap.

    Here is a snip from the modinfo I posted above:
    $ modinfo sundance | grep 13F0
    alias: pci:v000013F0d00000200sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias: pci:v000013F0d00000201sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    Let's save ourselves some anguish. In case the driver for the Realtek is trying to load and interfer, let's blacklist it:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo 'blacklist r8169' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Now, let's get sundance to load automagically:
    Code:
    echo sundance >> /etc/modules
    exit
    Now hook up the ethernet cable and reboot. Now run and post:
    Code:
    ifconfig
    dmesg | grep -e sundance -e eth
    Thanks.

    Looking good so far! Are you using Network Manager? Is there any recognition of your Wired Network? Let's see what NM is doing behind the scenes:
