Network adopter driver

I am trying to install the driver for the wireless adopter. It looks
like it's Intel based:


lspci

The issue is, I still can not find the device. Am I using the correct
driver ?

I installed the firmware I believe is most approperiate for this

Still ifconfig shows:

Any hint ?

I always go here to find out which driver to use.

http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/

I did google and found this tho:

http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/MSI_CX640_16Y1

According to that you need the atl1c module. I also found this little
gem too:

Notice the kernel line in one of the last posts. Maybe one of those
will help. If not, post back and maybe we can find something else.

Dale,
thank you a lot. I did a lot of googling before posting and will
continue looking at the links you gave me.
Will post the results.

Re: Network adopter driver [In reply to]

Dale,
atl1c is for ethernet and not for the wireless. What I looking for at
this point is the wireless.

for the wireless device. I do have it, and it's loaded but still the
device not seen by ifconfig !

What does lspci -k tell you about the wireless device?

I'm not sure what that command would do if there's no driver for this
device in the kernel though. You might try that with the install CD if
your current kernel doesn't provide any good results.

HTH,

Do you have a net.wlan0 entry in /etc/init.d? It should be a symbolic
link to net.lo . Have you tried:

# /etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start

?

According to http://de.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Iwlwifi#Firmware you have
the wrong firmware installed: Wireless-N 1030 needs
net-wireless/iwl6030-ucode

You can also have a look at http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Iwlwifi to
check your setup.

Re: Network adopter driver [In reply to]

installing net-wireless/iwl6030-ucode was the missing part.
Thank you all. I didn't see it on the page. Thank you Pascal.

On last thing about the touchpad, for another thread ;)
