Thread: 8.04 Lost eth0

  1. 8.04 Lost eth0

    A friend installed 8.04 and eth0 worked fine. After trying several
    experiments to get wireless working the system is now in a state where
    "ifconfig -a' does not report eth0. Perhaps drivers have been
    accidentally deleted?

    Also, his Dell Vostro 1000 has an AMD chip but the system is i586, could
    this be a problem? Has anybody got wireless working for this computer?

    Thanks
    Paul

    Might want to look over and/or post to the newsgroup, the output of the
    following terminal session commands:

    lspci
    lshw -C network
    dmesg | grep eth0
