network ok , but no internet

Recommended Posts

I have a IBM XSeries 205, and I put mandriva one 2009 on it.

I was instaling mandriva with the network cable on.

No error till know, but the internet connection doen't work.

I go to Network Center, and it said "unable to find network interface for selected device (using tg3 driver)" .

The network is like this, MODEM- ROUTER -SWITCH-IBM X Series 205 (this one).

If I put the Cable from switch to another PC wors great .

What should I do ?

Is your net switch using DHCP, or static addresses?

 

Static (192.168.100.2), what can be the solution ? I forget to tell that the green led on the network card (IBM ) is working .

Should I change the network card ?

 

No, what Scarecrow means is, that in konsole you have to write the last char as a ZERO, not as a o.

 

Open your konsole login as root, using the su command, write your root password when promt, then write or copy/paste

 ifconfig eth0

in to the konsole and hit enter. and paste the output in here :-)

Actually, you can paste from your browser to the console. Copying from the browser is done by rightclicking with the mouse, and pasting to the console is not done with "ctrl+V", but with "shift+insert" instead.

To save any confusion paste the output of the following konsole commands

su root[enter]
password[your root password][enter]
ifconfig

into a reply.

Will please you post the output of the command

ifconfig

without any eth0 at the end of the command?

You might also want to check that your network card is listed in the detected hardware using mcc.

The better will be:

 

ifconfig -a

 

and post the results.

The result for : ifconfig -a is :

You don't have any network interface in your machine. This can happen for one of a few reasons.

 

1. The module is not loaded.

2. The modue doesn't support your network card.

3. Your kernel doesn't have a module for your network card.

 

so, please provide results from:

 

lsmod | grep tg3

 

as well as:

 

lspci

 

so we can see the information for your network card.
