    Intel HM55 chipset


    Hi. When i installed fedora 10 to my notebook only sound and processor were working I may be sarcastic but it is nearly true.

    I have arheros ar5b93 wireless network adapter and broadcom netlink tm gigabit 82578DC ethernet card but both of them are not working. At first i tried to configure manually then downloaded wireless driver. I also tried to setup wpa_supplicant but output was full of "failed to do ..."

    I would really appreciate if u help me with this problem. I also need o fix ethernet card.

    Your wireless card uses the ath9k driver, which is loading and from this appears to be working.

    Does this show you local networks?
    Code:
    su -
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwlist wlan0 scan
    Your ethernet card uses the tg3 driver, which is not loading for some reason. It's been supported for ages though.
    Try manually loading the module
    Code:
    su -c 'modprobe tg3'
    Fedora 10 is old and has reached end of life. You might find all your problems solved if you install a current version of Fedora.

    For
    Code:
    su -
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwlist wlan0 scan
    it says it can't find wlan0. I tried to add it manually but failed.
    su -c 'modprobe tg3'
    doesn't give any response

    Broadcom driver tg3

    You need an updated driver at broadcom.
