no Network card


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:

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?

Ok i am on #suse with speudo Gph83

I don’t understand … :confused:
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: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::21e:8cff:fe6f:85a0/64 Scope:Link
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)

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.
