    NIC Information

    I'm getting DSL next week but don't know if my ethernet card will work with Ubuntu 7.10.

    I used the ifconfig eth0 command but don't know what the results mean:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:BF:A5:33:4D
    UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:1 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:2
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
    Interrupt:9 Base address:0x1400

    I did the ifconfig -a also:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:BF:A5:33:4D
    UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
    RX bytes:3322304 (3.1 MB) TX bytes:702817 (686.3 KB)

    I tried this command too: ip addr show eth0
    2: eth0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 1000
    link/ether 00:50:bf:a5:33:4d brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

    Will this NIC work with UBUNTU next week? Do I need to get a different NIC or do something with the NDISWRAPPER.

    Re: NIC Information

    Looks perfectly fine to me. You might also look at
    Code:
    sudo ethtool eth0
    sudo lshw -C network
    Based on what I see here, I think you will be fine.

    Here is the result of sudo ethtool eth0

    Settings for eth0:

    Here are the results for sudo lshw -C network

    I tried this command also to show the driver:

    sudo ethtool -i eth0

    Results:

    I'm getting DSL next week
    Plug it in and go. Your ethernet interface looks healthy and ready to embrace DSL. Have fun!

    DSL got hooked up today and Ubuntu 7.10 connected nicely without any problems to the internet. Thanks very much for the help.
