I just installed Debian 6.0.1 on a new machine today. It has a
Intel DH67CFB3 motherboard and a built-in ethernet card which is the
Intel 82579V. I googled around for a while trying to find how to install this ethernet card. This is what I have tried so far:
- During install, tried selecting the "82579 generic module", didn't work
- During install, tried selecting the "e1000 module", didn't work
- During install, tried selected the "e1000e module", didn't work
- After install ran insmod with path to e1000e module .ko-files, didn't work
I'm stuck at the moment and would appreciate some enlightenment!
When I run ifconfig it only shows the loopback.
Interfaces files only contain config for loopback
When I run
lspci -v, this is the info I get for the ethernet card:
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579V Gigabit Network Connection (rev 05) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 2000 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 10 Memory at fe500000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128k] Memory at fe528000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4] I/O ports at f080 [size=32] Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 2 Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+ Capabilities: [e0] PCI Advanced Features
I obviously most have missed something, or am I doomed to not being able to use this ethernet card?
