Just finished my install of 11.0 this afternoon, and now I am needing some help getting my network connection working.
I have the following hardware:
SuperMicro X7DAL-E Motherboard (Intel 5000X chipset)
2 Intel e5410 Xeon Processors
12gb DDR2 FB-DIMMs
nVidia GeForce 7600GT
The motherboard uses Intel’s 82563EB network interfaces, and YaST shows the following device:
80003ES2LAN Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Copper)
It also indicates;
- Active: Yes
- modprobe e1000e*
Under Network Settings in YaST, it lists the device as Not connected (though it is) and the following message:
“Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices)”
Has anyone had success with getting this network controller working? Any help would be great. Keep in mind that I am relatively new to SUSE.
