Hi,

I've installed LMCE 704 from live CD and 2 CDs. It seems that my onboard network card was not recognized automatically so no network was setup during install. Right now I've added sis900 to /etc/modules and it seems ok, but I guess I have network unconfigured and should probably do it manually.

But that's beyond my Linux knowledge.... Anyone can please help ?

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Bulek.

buy a cheep realtek network card  reinstall that would be easy

 it is probably config more than drivers from what im reading.also ever one is asking "have you got the latest bios for the mo/bo".So i guessing you should flash it if you have not already.this cant hurt

It takes a bit of extra setup to get a NIC going after the install.  Try searching this forum for: eth0:0

Thanks for info.

I got it working, but don't ask me what I've done (several changes caused it to get into working state). I think I manually edited /etc/network/interfaces to bring web-admin up, and then changed settings in there....

I also added sis900 module to /etc/modules..

A word of warning about doing that. LinuxMCE has a tendency to overwrite that file. Once you get it setup it's best to configure the network in LinuxMCE through the admin website.
