    Ethernet device not working right

    Have some strange issues on my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop running Ubuntu 9.10 i386.

    No wifi device installed in computer now (it was).

    Network manager says: "No network devices available"

    I want to have shared internet connection from Vista computer, but ethernet not works.

    Re: Ethernet device not working right

    I think this is supposed to work with a module 8139too. These cards often also load an unnecessary module 8139cp. Let's find out. Please open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep 8139
    Post the result and we'll have a better idea of how to proceed.

    Re: Ethernet device not working right

    That simply means there is nothing in the dmesg log at all with '8139' in the listing. Let's see if we can trigger it. Please do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe 8139too
    ifconfig
    Do you now have an eth0 interface? Let's also see the PCI ID for the card and try to verify that it's an 8139xx card:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep Ethernet
    Is this machine, by any chance, dual-booting with Windows?

    looks like eth0 is exist, but don't sure mod probe doing all right

    Re: Ethernet device not working right

    We have a real problem here. Neither the 8139too or 8139cp modules support 10ec:0139. Both support 10ec:8139, as you might expect.

    I found this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...t/1519/cat/158

    It seems to agree that the 8139cp driver is correct. However, it isn't, obviously.

    I have grepped /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.pcimap and find no match for 10ec AND 0139. The pci.id is shown in /usr/share/hwdata/pci.ids

    I have added some of these details so that searchers or others may learn from our research.

    I am continuing to google.

    Do you, by chance, have another ethernet card laying around?

    Re: Ethernet device not working right

    Thank you for help!

    This laptop is not dual-boot. Pure linux.
    I have no eth card around, thinking about buying a usb wifi to be online.

    Btw, pci bus controller send some strange info on computer startup, friend of my tell it can be broken on motherboard. But computer works good, only can't get Eth to work.

    Let's see if the kernel has any errors or warnings:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep 06:01

    Re: Ethernet device not working right

    Please reboot your computer. Whe the computer is first starting, you will see a reference to GRUB. You will have three seconds to press Esc and then you will see a menu like the attached. Highlight the top line and press e (for edit). Scroll down to the long line that contains 'quiet splash' and press e. Edit that line to add nolapic. Press Enter to accept the edit and b (for boot).

    After the machine boots fully, run:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep 06:01
    ifconfig
    Any improvement?
