internet connection via ethernet port

Asked by Nitesh Mistry on 2008-01-20

I am running Kubuntu 7.04 on this desktop computer (along with Windows XP and Ubuntu 7.10). It has a ethernet port (Realtek 8139 based LAN card). I have got cable broadband connection connected to this computer via a modem. The modem can be connected to either the ethernet port or the USB port.

However, I am not able to connect to the internet via ethernet port. When the modem is connected to the ethernet port, the "Network Connections" module (System Settings --> Network Settings) does not list any Network Interface.

But when I connect the modem to the USB port, it (Network Settings) shows 'eth0' in the Network Interfaces list, which I can select and insert my IP address (I have a static IP address provided by the service provider).

Please help me connecting to internet via ethernet port. I don't think there is any problem with the ethernet port, because it works when I run WindowsXP or Ubuntu 7.10.

We need some information.

Please attach the output of

$ dmesg

when you have just connected your modem via ethernet port.
And can you tell us which modem you have?

I have a cable modem, manufactured by Scientific Atlanta. Model = Webstar - DPC2100 Series

I hope this is useful.

Your ethernet card it is not detected... That's your problem, not the modem.

Can you attach the following information?

Nitesh Mistry (mistrynitesh) said : #6

Will buy a new ethernet card. That seems to be the simplest solution.

Thanks Vicent!

Nitesh Mistry (mistrynitesh) said : #7

Thanks Vicent Cubells, that solved my question.

Nitesh Mistry (mistrynitesh) said : #8

As an afterthought, I wonder that since the card is working on Gutsy, is there any reason for me to expect that the driver will be backported to Fiesty?

cubells (cubells) said : #9

´╗┐Probably not.
But I dont't know it.
