When you run 'ifconfig -a' does anything besides the 'lo' device show up; i.e. eth0 maybe?
No, nothing like that.........

The only other thing I've found that might be worth a try is to try is disabling acpi and enabling apm.  A way you can test this without making actual changes via the following procedure:
reboot
when lilo pops up, press 'TAB' key
type 'linux acpi=off noacpi' without the quotes
login to VL
as root, type 'modprobe apm' (does this command work for you?)
How do I know if it worked?

then check lspci and ifconfig -a for your ethernet card and eth0, respectively.
If it makes no difference then simply rebooting normally will put you back to where you were.
No ethernet card or eth0 or any thing like that...

The 'modprobe apm' would have indicated an error in one way or another - something to the effect of 'module not found'.  If you saw nothing (i.e. back to a prompt) then likely the command was successful.

There are a couple other possibilities that are easy to test:

Can you try a 'modprobe 3c556' to see if your card is then identified in lspci? (fingers crossed).

Do you see anything useful in the output from 'cat /proc/pci' (as root)?  Particularly about '3com' or 'ethernet' anything (fingers crossed).

These ideas are from here: http://www.geocities.jp/fred_b_maciel/3c556/

----------------

Here's an interesting read: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_with_3Com_10/100_Ethernet_card_not_being_recognized

It indicates that (at least in IBM thinkpads) there's the possibility that 3com ethernet adapters may not be identified with kernels prior to 2.6.14-b1 with ACPI enabled.  IIRC, VL 5.9 Standard used 2.6.13 (IIRC) - so perhaps there's a similarity to this with your Dell Inspiron 2500.  Possible solutions for this involve what's listed on the page and/or a kernel upgrade from the VL repository to something newer (2.6.23+).

VL 5.9 standard uses a 2.6.22.x kernel.  You're thinking of 5.8.  So... that isn't it.  Sad

I wish I had useful ideas but I don't at the moment.

Try 'lspci -v' as root and paste the output, maybe that will reveal a bit more. At the moment, it is a s though Linux doesn't see the hardware at all.

paul.

!!!!!!!!!!!Pasting the output of the terminal gives some Font Size Problems when I preview the text!!!!!!

 Grin Which is why you should use code tage. Not sure if I can enter them here, maybe if I leave spaces between the elements...  You should start with [ code ], paste the data you want people to see, then use [ / code ] to end the data. Or you can use the # symbol above the smileys and paste your data between the two square bracketed symbols.

The strnage thing is, even with 'lspci -v', there is no sign of the ehternet controller. You might want to try 'modprobe mii' - with one HP machine, I had to modprobe both the intel e100 module and mii to get the adapter functional. Other than that, I'm afraid my knowledge has run out....

That is what prompted me to post before.  You would think that there would be some sign of the device!!?!
I notice that at http://www.mobilitysite.com/boards/classifieds/124592-fs-dell-inspiron-2500-laptop.html the original poster mentions how the lan jack is there but not connected to anything.

It would be interesting to see what the device looks like when viewed through the 'Device Manager' under Windows.  Perhaps there may be some information gleaned from there which proves helpful.

Can you try a 'modprobe 3c556' to see if your card is then identified in lspci? (fingers crossed).
Terminal output:
FATAL: Module 3c556 not found.

Do you see anything useful in the output from 'cat /proc/pci' (as root)?  Particularly about '3com' or 'ethernet' anything (fingers crossed).
Terminal output:
cat: /proc/pci: No such file or directory

I'll check these links later.

Good thought, but now the confusion is complete. I can't find anything about a LAN connection in Windows either  Huh
See screenshots in the attachment.
 Shocked

EDIT:
I found THIS and THAT website and as I understand it, the problem is related to the kernel version used in VL 5.9.
I checked with 'uname -a' and got Linux 2.6.22.19.
As I'm not smart enough how to figure out if this kernel does support the
driver for the 3Com Mini PCI devices 3c556 (PCI Device id=6055), I would like to ask if somebody could help me here?

Hi,
I'm just wondering, has somebody a Dell Inspiron 2500 Laptop connected to high speed Internet with the built-in
3c556 Mini PCI adapters (combo adapters that include a modem)?
Please tell me how you got it to work!

I found this:

http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_Dell_Inspiron_2500

The problem that I see is that your card (I question if it exits) should show
in the output of lspci. Without an address space it is almost impossible to
fix.

There are posts that I found from 2002 that mention this card could have some
type of subsystem that can only be recognized in Windows.

Thanks, BigPaws, very much!  Wink
This is exactly the Laptop I have. The card is built in (not accessible, not in a card slot).
As one could see in the Hardware list, the connection is a "3Com 3c905C Fast Ethernet"
and I wonder if there is any driver in Linux for that.
My Google-ing was not successful yet!

I have spent some time with google as well.

The problem is that your lspci is not showing the device.

There maybe one more place to check

Please place the output of dmesg. This would be
the only other place I can think of to check.

Thanks, BigPaws, very much!  Wink
This is exactly the Laptop I have. The card is built in (not accessible, not in a card slot).
As one could see in the Hardware list, the connection is a "3Com 3c905C Fast Ethernet"
and I wonder if there is any driver in Linux for that.
My Google-ing was not successful yet!

The data I can find on the machine indicates that the ethernet is on a mini-PCI card, which can certainly be replaced. And replacements can be bought. Have a look here:

http://www.alancomputech.com/4g889.html

Mini-PCI stuff is usually easy to change, once you work out where it is. There will be the card, and there will be two small plug/sockets, which connect to the modem and ethernet socket on the outer case of the machine.

Dmesg gave no indication of the card.

Which if I were to guess means the device is turned off in some manner

Is there a hotkey to enable or disable this device?

How would it look like?
Do you mean a keyboard key?

In case I would have to go the replacement route,
---is it sure that I can get it working in Linux?
---which driver would I need?
---would Windows still recognize the replacement card?
---is it easy/save to open the laptop case?

I have to confess, I'm a bit nervous to go that way, but I think I'm getting closer to solve the issue  Roll Eyes

HELP please!
