Broadcom ethernet adapter in Dell Inspiron not detected Subject description: No Interfaces Detected in New Model Dell
Puppy 525, 510, 421 do not detect any ethernet interfaces using the on-board Broadcom ethernet (wired) adapter in my new Dell Inspiron 570. Based on the driver used by the pre-installed Windows7, the adapter should use the latest Broadom drivers for their NetLink 57xx adapters. This includes the tg3 driver for Linux. Using the network setup wizard, I have tried re-loading the tg3 driver (which I think was already loaded) as well as trying the NDIS wrapper with several windows drivers downloaded from Broadcom. With the NDIS wrapper, I do get "k57win32: driver installed, device(14E4:1691) present", however the ultimate result is still "No new interfaces detected".
Other than buying/installing a pci ethernet card, I do not know what to try next.
Any help is appreciated.
