Buongiorno,

è la priva volta che mi approccio a linux, ho istallato su un vecchio portatile ''Porteus-LXQT-v4.0-i586'', l'unica che mi funzionava:( (il pc ha solo 512 di RAM).
Lo voglio usare solo per navigazione internet ed ovviamente non riconosce la scheda di rete :evil:

Ho seguito varie guide, senza successo...credo di capire che devo scaricare i driver su una penna usb per poi installarli dato che non ricevo connessione neppure con il cavo ethernet (sempre se non bisogna configurare qualcosa anche li)

Come posso fare?

Grazie in anticipo

----------------------------------------------------------------
Good morning,

it is the first time that I approach linux, I installed on an old laptop '' Porteus-LXQT-v4.0-i586 '', the only one that worked for me :( (the pc has only 512 of RAM).
I want to use it only for internet browsing and obviously it doesn't recognize the network card: evil:

I have followed various guides, without success ... i think i must to put the drivers on a USB stick and then install them.

For the ethernet connection, is it necessary setting something?

What i can do?

Thanks in advance

hi, try to connect the cable and in console or terminal write: ip link and you can see if you have a device name like eth0 or eth1 and so on, if you have this check ok ,write dhcpcd eth? see if you have a cable connection first,we have to know the wifi card name or model,ok try for cable connection and report if work for you.

I use

Code: Select all

sudo lshw
in uxterm,but the termina give me this:

Code: Select all

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things: 

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.
what should I do?

--> Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401 100Base-T (rev 01) <--
...should be supported by the b44 driver.
so maybe this network driver is probably blacklisted.

open the broadcom blacklist files in /etc/modprobe.d/ in a text editor
and if there is a line blacklist b44, comment this out > save > reboot.

Code: Select all

#blacklist b44      <--Commented out this line

You have to be root to edit/save that file.
use a root filemanager or log in as root.

the ethernet cable or the net device do not work you do not have anyone seem in slackware you have to use su not sudo: su password and you are root,you can do all the task....

[beny@archlinux ~]$ ip link
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: enp5s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/ether d0:50:99:65:4e:d1 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
[beny@archlinux ~]$ now i am on arch but the second row is the net device name,in arch is different from porteus eth0..
