    Exclamation Davicom DM9102F NIC not recognized in ubuntu 14.04 LTS

    Hello ubuntu forums community!

    I had a PC with 512 MB RAM, which had Windows 8 (Yes, with 512 MB RAM it would work, but way too slow.......................................) and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - based distro (Zorin OS 6 for the fact). The problem with the NIC can be found here.

    However, I recently swapped a working NIC from one of my PCs and made a RAM upgrade. Now I have roughly 1 GB of RAM, and I wanted to put the computer to use as a Proxy server. I tried downloading ubuntu server on it, but it just didn't install correctly, so I ended up installing ubuntu desktop and Squid.

    Squid requires for 2 NICs, so I decided to put the Davicom one to work. Unfortunately, now it doesn't even recognize my NIC as even existing:

    Code:
    root@CASA-PROXY-SERVER-LINUX-UBUNTU:~# lshw -C network
      *-network

    Any ideas on how to revive this card?

    Hi,

    first: Reset the BIOS to default settings.

    second: please show the outputs now of
    Code:
    lspci -nnk
    lsusb
    pccardctl info
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    rfkill list

    Hello!

    I could not find the "Reset BIOS" options, but I found "Load optimal defaults". So after doing that, my BIOS started recognizing a floppy drive which doesn't even exist! Ubuntu also says now that there is a floppy drive, but when I mount it, an error says that I don't have permission to access it?!?!!???? My PC is weird...

    As for the network issue, it still doesn't recognize my NIC.

    Outputs of the commands (I ran them all as ro):

    Code:
    ownerp@CASA-PROXY-SERVER-LINUX-UBUNTU:~$ sudo -i

    I *think* this is the problem:

    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.


    What about eth1?

    I'm totally confused by this. Someone please enlighten me on what to do next.

    Obviously, nothing detected. Does Win shut down the card?
