Slackware 12 and lack of internet
Posted 17 August 2007 - 10:38 AM
I've run netconfig and that all appears to be in order. ifconfig eth0 tells me that something-or-other cannot be found. I can manage to pink 127.0.0.1.
Just need some ideas on what kind of things I should be trying, and if possible an explanation of how to do them.

02:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection (rev 05)
02:06.0 CardBus bridge: ENE Technology Inc CB1410 Cardbus Controller (rev 01)
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation PRO/100 VE Network Connection (rev 03)
I then did ifconfig and got the following:
Link encap: Local Loopback
inet addr: 127.0.0.1 Mask: 255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope: Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1

RX bytes: 0 (0.0 TX bytes: 0 (0.0
I then did ifconfig eth0 and got:
eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
@ regret: It's an HP 510 laptop - it has wired ethernet and has wireless. Both are using an intel chipset (Pro/100 VE and Pro/Wireless 2200BG, respectively)

Your Intel wired card is pretty common, and uses the module "e100" I *think*. Make sure the kernel module is actually installed: Run "/sbin/lsmod | grep e100" If nothing comes back, it means it wasn't loaded at boot. If this is the care, try to run: "/sbin/modprobe e100". If it comes back with a "Module not found" error, the issue is that the kernel module isn't even on your system.
If the modprobe command runs without complaint, run the lsmod command again. If it returns something this time, now try to run your /sbin/ifconfig eth0. I'm not sure of the Slackware method for configuring network devices to start properly on boot, so you'll want to consult their docs.

if you don't remember here.
$ lsmod | grep ipw2200If it is not listed then do this
You should be set.

and nothing came back
so I did /sbin/modprobe e100
now if I do /sbin/lsmod | grep e100 it comes back with:
e100 35464 0
mii 8576 1 e100
I also did the same with ipw2200 in place of the e100 and now if I do grep with the ipw2200 I get:
ipw2200 145480 0
ieee80211 34248 1 ipw2200
Now If I do ifconfig eth0 I do get sensible results back. But I thought i'd post here to see if there were any ideas for the wireless before I checked if the wired worked (just going to reboot now)

try iwconfig and see what you get.

eth0 no wireless extensions.[/codebox]
Also whenever slackware boots up I have to do /sbin/modprobe e100 before I can get the wired ethernet working.
This was written from slackware, on the wired ethernet

i'm pretty sure dhcpcd works in slax so it probably would work in slackware.
