Instalar Tarjeta de Red

Buanas tardes

Compre una nueva tarjeta de red para instalarsela a mi Equipo pues necesito poner a trabajar las dos conexiones para convertirlo como servidor de internet...

Pero me encuentro con el problema de que debian no me la reconoce la marca es NEXXT NW122NCT01; el disco trae dos archivos que al parecer son los drivers para linux llamados kern_compat.h y tulip.c...

Mi pregunta es como instalarlos o como poner a funcionar la Tarjeta de red.

Gracias

Oswaldo

Hola. Es más útil que averigües que chip usa ese modelo de placa de red. A partir de esa información puede ver si debian dispone del módulo y sólo tienes que cargarlo, o si tienes que usar los del disco y realizar las compilaciones pertinentes.

Es una tarjeta 100/10Mbps o una Ethernet Gigabit? Es raro que una 100 Mbps no sea reconocida por debian. Las de chip Realtek son muy muy baratas y funcionan sin problemas.

Saludos

Es una tarjeta de red 10/100 PCI y dentro del disco que viene de fabrica
trae los dos archivos que mecncione anterioremente....

Gracias

es muy probable que tu tarjeta funcione con el módulo del chipset de Davicom. Prueba a colocar el módulo con :
modprobe dmfe
así cargas el módulo en el kernel y prueba luego a ver si te la carga con
ifconfig -a
Si no te funciona, seguramente venga en el disco que tienes un archivo readme.txt que te explica las especificaciones de la tarjeta y el chipset que lleva, y cómo instalar el módulo en el kernel.
Yo he encontrado un readme para una tarjeta nexxt nw122nt01 (es casi igual a la tuya), te lo pego aquí, supongo que será lo mismo para lo tuyo

	Now dmfe.c is for kernel 2.2.x and dm9xs.c is for kernel 2.4.x.

	If you use kernel 2.4.x, please use dm9xs.c to instead dmfe.c on

	the following.



  A. Compiler command:



     A-1: For normal single processor kernel

          "gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet -Wall 

            -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"



     A-2: For single processor and set version info on all module symbol

          "gcc -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/net/inet 

            -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"



     A-3: For multiple processors(SMP) and set ver. info. on all module symbol

          "gcc -D__SMP__ -DMODULE -DMODVERSIONS -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux

           /net/inet -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c dmfe.c"



	Note: O of -O6 is a capital "o", not a "0".

	    



  B. How to compile driver 

  

     B-1: Login by supervisor

     B-2: Copy dmfe.c and Makefile into your HD. You can make a new directoty 

          to put.

     B-3: Keep driver source file name as "dmfe.c" and makefile name as 

	  "Makefile"

     B-4: You can type the following command to compile driver. Please according

     	  to your system to pick one.

     		make org	;;Without SMP & Set version info on module

				;;<For example> Redhat6.0

     		make mod	;;Set version info on all module symbol

				;;<For example> Redhat6.1/6.2,

				;;		Mandrake6.1/7.0/7.1,

				;;		Caldera2.3

     		make smp	;;symmetric multi-processing(SMP) support

				;;

     		make smp_mod	;;SMP & Set version info on module

				;;

		make org24	;;Compiled dm9xs.c

		make mod24	;;Compiled dm9xs.c

		make smp24	;;Compiled dm9xs.c

		make smp_mod24	;;Compiled dm9xs.c

     	

     	  Or you can type above compiler command to compile driver.

     		

     	Note: Please check you must have the right kernel source on 

     	      "/usr/src/linux".





  C. The following steps teach you how to activate NIC:



     C-1: A simple and temporary method

     

        1. Used the upper compiler command to compile dmfe.c



        2. Insert dmfe module into kernel

           "insmod dmfe"        ;;Auto Detection Mode (Suggest)

           "insmod dmfe mode=0" ;;Force 10M Half Duplex

           "insmod dmfe mode=1" ;;Force 100M Half Duplex

           "insmod dmfe mode=4" ;;Force 10M Full Duplex

           "insmod dmfe mode=5" ;;Force 100M Full Duplex

           "insmod dmfe mode=0x10" ;;Force 1M HomePNA

           "insmod dmfe SF_mode=1" ;;VLAN Enable

           "insmod dmfe SF_mode=2" ;;Flow Control Enable

           "insmod dmfe SF_mode=4" ;;TX Pause Packet Enable



	   NOTE:1. SF_mode can be a combination of 3 special mode.

		2. You can type "man insmod" to see more description.



        3. Config a dm9102 network interface

           "ifconfig eth0 172.22.3.18"

                          ^^^^^^^^^^^ Your IP address



	   NOTE: You can type "man ifconfig" to see more description.



        4. Activate the IP routing table. For some distributions, it is not

           necessary. You can type "route" to check.



           "route add default netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0"



	   NOTE: You can type "man route" to see more description.





        5. Well done. Your DM9102 adapter actived now.



	Note. This is a temporary method. After you reboot the system, you

	      will lost the setting.





     C-2: For Mandrake/Redhat, You can use the following to Activate NIC

	

	1. login your system used the superuser

	2. (Mandrake7.0)

   		rename dmfe_m70.o to dmfe.o and copy dmfe.o into

	  	/lib/modules/2.2.14-15mdk/net to overwrite the old dmfe.o.

	   or(Mandrake6.1)

   		rename dmfe_m61.o to dmfe.o and copy dmfe.o into

	  	/lib/modules/2.2.13-7mdk/net to overwrite the old dmfe.o.

	   or(RedHat6.2)

   		rename dmfe_r62.o to dmfe.o and copy dmfe.o into

	  	/lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/net to overwrite the old dmfe.o.

   	   or(RedHat6.1)

   		rename dmfe_r61.o to dmfe.o and copy dmfe.o into

	  	/lib/modules/2.2.12-20/net to overwrite the old dmfe.o.

	   or(RedHat6.0)

	   	rename dmfe_r60.o to dmfe.o and copy dmfe.o into

	  	/lib/modules/2.2.5-15/net to overwrite the old dmfe.o.

    

	3. execute "linuxconf".

	4. Then select Config->Networking->Client tasks ->Basic host information

	5. Fill your IP address, netmask,

	   net device = eth0

	   kernel module = dmfe

	6. press <Accept> to confirm and exit this setting

	7. press <quit> exit the main menu

	8. Now it displays "Status of the system" menu. Select <Activate the

	   changes> to active the new setting and exit.

	9. reboot your system and kernel will automatically load driver and

	   active network.

	10. try to ping other host to test your NIC.





     C-3: For Caldera or others, You can use the following to Activate NIC

	  permanently. Please try C-1 firstly. After your NIC works on C-1

	  method, you do the following to active NIC permanently.

	  

	1. copy dmfe.o to your kernel network module directory

	   <eg>

		for Caldera 2.3:

			cp dmfe.o /lib/modules/2.2.10/net



	2. put C-1 manual command into file "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" or 

	   "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1".

	   <eg>

		for Caldera 2.3:

		    add the following 3 line into rc.local

			insmod /lib/modules/2.2.10/net/dmfe.o

			ifconfig xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0

			route add default eth0



	3. reboot your system







   D. Object files description:



	dmfe_r70.o:		For Redhat 7.0, Kernel 2.2.16-22

    	dmfe_r62.o:		For Redhat 6.2, kernel version 2.2.14-5.0

        If you can make sure your kernel version, you can rename

        to dmfe.o and directly use it without re-compiling.
