    intel network drivers


    using ubuntu 9.04 on an hp 8530w laptop. All works fine apart from not having any ethernet. The built in card is an intel nic.

    I've tried following the readme for the drivers from intel but getting no luck - details below:


    sudo modprobe e1000e.ko
    FATAL: Module e1000e.ko not found.

    Most intel drivers, especially for a NIC, should already be installed.
    What is the output of
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    lsmod
    ifconfig -a

    Is this running in VM? Also, is it part of a VPN?

    The e1000 module is loaded, but it doesn't work with this NIC. The vmnet networks are just virtuals created by VMWare. There is no eth0, which there would be if the correct module for the NIC was loaded.

    You can unload the e1000 module:

    Code:
    modprobe -r e1000
    1) Visit's Intel's site and download the latest driver - Intel 82567 Driver

    2) Follow the install directions to compile the driver. You will need the build-essential package to compile.

    Install README

    Once compiled correctly, the module will be e1000e.

    * I would also either rename the e1000.ko module or blacklist it so that it doesn't get loaded incorrectly.

    * Modules are loaded by name *without* the .ko extension. "Modprobe e1000e"

    I have Ubuntu 9.04, and I was able to load the e1000e module by just using the modprobe command. I didn't have to install it, it is in the kernel.

    Try removing the e1000 module, and loading the e1000e module.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r e1000
    Code:
    sudo modprobe e1000e
    Now see if the network card will work.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    Wouldn't surprise me, since OP may have been trying to load the module incorrectly...
    Code:
    sudo modprobe e1000e.ko
    FATAL: Module e1000e.ko not found.
    I am curious as to the version of e1000e bundled with 9.04. Can you check the module version?

    Code:
    filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.16.60-0.21-smp/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko
    version:        0.5.18.3-NAPI
