    Question no Network card

    Hi,

    I have a problem since 4 days.
    My network card doesn't work !
    Before it works well, i don't modify anything except the security update provide par Opensuse V11 repository.

    It's a motherbaord card with Atheros L1 chipset. The motherboard is a Asus V3-P5G31.

    The module atl1 is loaded, but eth0 is not up and i can't setup it.

    Yast say me that the card is present but not setup but i can't do nothing for modify !

    Is somenone have an idea to help me ?

    Thanks, Philippe.

    PS : Distrib is opensuse 11 64 bits

    If you go to a shell, switch to root privileges by typing "su -" and type:

    ifconfig eth0 up
    ifconfig eth0 IP
    route add default gw ROUTERIP

    Where you substitute IP with your IP address that you want to give the box and ROUTERIP with the IP of your GATEWAY (Which is usually your DSL/Cable modem)

    Then ping some well known IP like Google:
    ping 72.14.207.99

    This is just a test to see if the card can be configured (and the driver works normally)

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I'll try the "ifconfig eth0 up" in root.
    But he say me there is no device.

    I don't remind exactly the text because it was very late yesterday.

    But i can post the really text this evening.

    Right in that case the module (the driver) is not loading properly or simply does not match the device in question - actually I just helped someone with the same driver, although I compiled it for 32 bit system.

    Can you come to freenode IRC and hop over to #suse - I can send you the file so you can try it out?

    I don't understand ...
    I use windows, i reboot, it work !!!!

    I have in Yast :
    L1 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
    MAC : 00:1e:8c:6f:85:a0
    Le périphérique n'est pas configuré. Cliquez sur Editer pour le configurer.

    Carte réseau Ethernet (Pas de hwinfo)
    • Nom du périphérique : eth1
    • Lancé automatiquement au démarrage
    • Adresse IP assignée via DHCP
    Ifconfig say :
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1E:8C:6F:85:A0
    inet addr:192.168.1.10 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
    inet6 addr: fe80::21e:8cff:fe6f:85a0/64 Scope:Link
    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:10353 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:9010 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:2
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:10558757 (10.0 Mb) TX bytes:1227360 (1.1 Mb)
    And the hostname is the windows name ...

    I think the problem came with DHCP.

    And hwinfo say

    the file 70-persistent-net.rules is :
    # You can modify it,as long as you keep each rule on a single line.
    # PCI device 0x1969:0x1048 (atl1)
    # This file was automatically generated by the /lib/udev/write_net_rules
    # program run by the persistent-net-generator.rules rules file.
    #
    # You can modify it,as long as you keep each rule on a single line.
    # PCI device 0x1969:0x1048 (atl1)
    # PCI device 0x1969:0x1048 (atl1)
    SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:1e:8c:6f:85:a0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"
    And there is no ifcfg-eth0 in sysconfig/network
    But ... eth0 is up and it is ok ...

    I go to sleep perhap tomorow i think better !
    Good nigth.
