Hello I got an Intel 82540 32-bit PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller, I installed Suse 8 . I have not installed any updates and reconises as an Intel corporation and that's it. I can configure it and I can ping it but if I connect a switch 10/100 to it the light goes on but I when I try to ping it, it wont answer but . I tried to look it up on hardware certified by suse 8 but I couldn' find it the page is a bit confusing. What can I do to solve this situation. Thanks...

    Default Intel 82540 Gigabit Ethernet

    Hello

    I got an Intel 82540 32-bit PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller, I installed
    Suse 8 .
    I have not installed any updates and reconises as an Intel corporation and
    that's it.
    I can configure it and I can ping it but if I connect a switch 10/100 to it
    the light goes on but I when I try to ping it, it wont answer but .

    I tried to look it up on hardware certified by suse 8 but I couldn' find it
    the page is a bit confusing.

    What can I do to solve this situation.

    Thanks

    I think just one of the recent kernel versions (2.4.2X ?) support the
    Intel Gigabit ethernet controller. The kernel modules (driver) you need
    is called "e1000.o". So login as user "root" and try "modprobe e1000" (I
    hope Suse 8 ships this driver). Check then for the latest dmesg
    messages. If you can see that the card is recognized then add e1000 to
    /etc/modules to make the adapter available after the next reboot.

    *Untrue*.

    Fedora Core supports the Intel Gigabit controller (either the onboard
    PRO/1000CT or card-based PRO/1000MT) as does SuSE 9 (both Professional
    and FTP install). *Tested and proven.*

    However, *Solaris 9 for x86* requires a driver (available from Intel's
    Download Center) to use this chipset natively.
