New to Vector or any kind of slackware. I'm not a terminal user at all but will learn if I need it to fix this issue.

Vector isn't seeing my wired ethernet connection. Of course wireless isn't set up either but I really need to at least get wired working.  I have no idea how to do that.  I'm using a Realtek PCEe for wired. The OS is Vector 7.0 Standard Gold. The machine is a compaq Presario cq61 . Here is it's spec sheet http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c01980785&lc=en&product=4125444

It connected to a Netgear b90 series router. Here's my lsmod and lspci outputs.

lsmod - http://pastebin.com/78jTBAHi

lspci - http://pastebin.com/mEAFifSJ

Hey, just noticed I posted in the wrong forum. This should probably be in Networking.  Had a bad day fighting with a laptop fan cleaning job. Mods please move if you want with my apologies.

It appears that your modules (drivers) for both the wired and wireless cards are
installed.

Did you try using VASM to configure your card?

That is where I would start.

First make sure that the ethernet cable is plugged in then
try VASM .
