    choose your net driver ... help...


    i have windows xp and madrake linux (8.2) on my hard drive and can use the internet fine with windows, but for some reason cant set up the internet on linux. i enter in my root password, select autodetect, choose lan (im on a lan with 2 other computers on cable, im not the server.), and dont know what to do after that. it says to choose the correct net driver, but i cant seem to find the right one. if im in windows and go to my device manager, and go to network adapters, and it says Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection, but i tried all the intel net drivers on linux, and no luck! help...please. thanks in advance.

    I think you have to install the e100 drivers from intel, i dont know were they are, but google around and search intel's site.

    i seem to be having the exact same problems. I chose a driver that looks like it would work with the Intel(R) PRO/100 card, and it looks like its doing something and than all of a sudden i'm back at New Connection and my only option is to manually load a driver. When the tools log is open, i just get a "running: modinfo -p eepro100" or whatever driver i've tried...it doesnt indicate any error it just...doesnt work
