Subject description: Ethernet controller: Intel 82557/8/9/0/1 Ethernet Pro 100 (rev08) problem
 

Hi,

I recently tried to revive my Dell Inspiron 2500

I installed Puppy Linux (lupu-520.iso) using the full install method. Everything seemed to working smoothly except from the Ethernet adapter.

I tried to load all the Intel's pro modules available with no luck.
I also tried the Ndiswrapper.

In addition the ee100pro module is missing which seems to be working (http://www.4sich.de/dell/dell2500.html) for this card.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!!

I used pfind to search for eepro100 on my various puppy installs.
Had to go back to 4.1.2 to find it.

Don't know if it was forgotten or superceded on newer versions.

Thanks for the reply!

I downloaded puppy-unleashed-core-4.1.2.tar.gz and extract the eepro100.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.xx/kernel/drivers/net/ but I cannot load it.

Maybe I am missing something here... can you please help?

Thanks!!

Not sure;
Maybe right click file > permissions > make executable searchable.

Puppys' change so much from one version to the next, I never know
what will work.

I would assume that the problem is the 2 different kernels.....4.12 has 2.6.25.16 and 5.20 has 2.6.33.2.Pretty sure drivers are kernel dependent.

Your probably right. So the only solution is to compile the module from scratch?
