Hello,

I've got a little problem with my wired network connection on my laptop running a fresh installation of 8.10. It doesn't seem to autodetect my network card. Wireless works fine but I don't want to use my neighbours connection all the time.

/etc/network/interfaces gives me:

Still no wired connection though, anyone have an idea what could be going wrong here? Thanks.

I'd love to know if you figure out what's wrong. I ran an update on 8.04 (didn't go to 8.10). Now my network card and IDE Controller card don't load drivers or function.

I get similar output to you from running
sudo lshw -C network

*-network UNCLAIMED

I think the unclaimed means there's no driver/module loaded for my hardware but I haven't the foggiest what the name of the correct module to load is. Heck, I don't even know how to find that out.

Sorry for digging up this old thread but I still have the same problem,
Anyone who can help me with this?

Thanks,
