I've got a thinkpad with wifi and the regular ethernet connection.
wifi works, but I'm having trouble getting the wired connection to
work. I've got the appropriate driver for the card (Intel Corporation
82540EP Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Mobile))
Here is the error:
# ifup eth0
e1000 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying
So now I'm wondering - does /dev/eth0 exist? It doesn't. Should it?
I also see that /dev/eth1 doesn't exist, but eth1 (wifi) works without
The driver for the card is loaded as a module:
# lsmod | grep e1000
e1000 102829 0
# grep eth0 /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 e1000
But this one is weird. I *think* the wired connection is eth0, and
hwbrowser does show eth0 as the device associated with the wired
connection, but I see eth1, not eth0, associated with this interface
# dmesg | grep eth1
e1000: eth1: e1000_probe: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
Can anyone shed any light on this, and on that error above?
I desperately need this wired connection, as I'm nowhere near any
The output of ifconfig will show all the network devices, and iwconfig will show wireless devices.
The naming of network interfaces is controlled by /etc/udev/rules.d/30-net_persistent_names.rules. Check that for references to the MAC address of your e1000.
