Users / Problem with integrated NIC on MD
« on: May 22, 2009, 06:09:22 pm »
I just bought all the components for an MD in my family room, did a load of research and selected the created the quietest machine I could create. For some unknown reason I completely missed the fact that the integrated NIC on the ASUS M3N78-EM ( isn't recognized by MCE 0710 so obviously the diskless setup fails.

The page above suggests upgrading the kernel in order to fix to allow the NIC to work, I am a Linux newb and upgrading the kernel scares the cr@p out of me, especially after reading all the warnings about all the things it can break.

My question is this,if I buy a $10 NIC and throw it in a PCI slot and disable the integrated NIC can I pxeboot from it? If so, is there anything I need to know when considering the card?

Thanks in advance,


Just setup my LinuxMCE system without too many issues at all but this one definitely has me stumped. First let me point out that I am a Linux newb, so be gentle.
I have a D-Link DNS-323 NAS that has a built-in print server (Canon PiXma IP6700D attached) that was working perfectly before I bought my Core online. My core is now running my network (dual NICs etc) and I just noticed that all of my windows machines can no longer print to the printer on the NAS.
I am fairly sure that there is some sort of permissions issue going on as I get "access denied" errors if I try to delete a job sent to the printer. The Windows machines seem to connect to the printer fine but flat refuse to print test pages or anything else. I did manage to get one print job out, after restarting the NAS but it wont print anymore after that. The NAS is added as a device within MCE and I have a single share (no security on it) that works really well for media in/out.
Any suggestions would be appreciated as their doesn't seem to a printer driver for my printer under Linux so I can't move it over to the core and share it out from there.
