Can't connect Slitaz to internet via ethernet cable
  • SnoringFrogSnoringFrog December 2009
    I can't get Slitaz hooked up to the internet. I have the ethernet cable plugged into the laptop and the other end into the router, but no interent. I was following the instructions I found here: (but I'm not using and eee, it was just something that came up when I googled for help). I got down to "then start ethernet
    menu > system tools > Netbox Configure networking
    click on start
    you should now have an ethernet connection" When I click on start under DHCP on the Netboz configure networking box, nothing happens.

    I tried that, but no luck. The DHCP section didn't help, and when I went to the install network card driver section, I also got nowhere. When I tried this command: "lspci | grep [Ee]th" it returned nothing. Would this mean that there is no network card at all? I'm no good with hardware, so I'm thinking that my ignorance might have had me overlook that.

    How is the ethernet adapter connected to the laptop?
    USB,internal,or PC card which plugs into a cardbus slot and is removable.

    Internal or PC card

    Copy and paste the results of these commands:
    tazhw detect-pci


    Install usbutils

    Copy and paste the results of these commands:
    tazhw detect-usb

Howdy, Stranger!
