Internet setup [SOLVED]

Post#1 by ppb222 » 03 Nov 2012, 08:10

I'm having trouble trying to set up internet connection in Porteus. I can see a list of wireless networks, but after several seconds of connecting any attempt fails. Wired connection doesn't work either. I have already tried several advices found on this board, to no avail though. Help!

i see you are using fairly old porteus version so i would suggest you to upgrade to porteus-1.2 first:
http://porteus.org/distro-download/main-download.html

from the log file i could see that your eth0 interface has troubles:

Code: Select all

[  115.706214] b44 ssb0:0: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX
[  115.706638] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
will dig into that later.

i couldn't find any wireless adapter. is it usb dongle, pcmcia card or something else?

please upgrade to porteus-1.2 and if you still experience network troubles then please post output of 'lsmod' command and upload /ver/log/messages to pastebin.com

thank you.

How do I upgrade Porteus? Is it as simple as extracting the ISO file over the old files on my pendrive and running the installation script again?

My wireless adapter is a PCIMCIA card. I had forgotten to plug it in before I ran the system info utility, that's why it's not included on the list.

exactly.
make sure you delete all old files.
My wireless adapter is a PCIMCIA card.
nice - i have a very little experience with such hardware so will have an opportunity to learn something new :)

please upgrade to 1.2 and post all details possible (psinfo, lsmod, /var/log/messages, lsusb, etc).

btw: may i ask where did you find download link to porteus-1.0?

I think I have downloaded it from the official website, but it was a long time ago.
