VirtualBox/VMVare/SomeVM is useless in this case. VirtualBoxes see only "emulated" network cards. There is no way a VM can manage a real ethernet card.

If you look at the output from lspci both cards are getting assigned the correct kernel module/drivers. realtek Kernel driver in use: r8169 Kernel modules: r8169 broadcom Kernel driver in use: tg3 Kernel modules: tg3 I'd need to see the output of dmesg to debug further. The output you provided shows the cards are getting what appear to be the ...

You can almost certainly get a "full ISO install" of your distribution with all required packages for install and compilation already supplied; possibly (and even better), a live distribution. All that you need is a FAT-formatted USB key where you will download the Dropbox-supplied "officially unofficial" driver in source format from Windows 7. The key will ...

You can force a device to use a certain device using bind. If the device is already owned by a different driver, you first have to unbind it. If a PCI vendor ID (10ec for Realtek) and device ID combination is not recognized, you can make it get recognized at runtime with: # echo 10ec 8169 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/r8169/new_id Example: # lspci -s 04: ...

I solved the problem. Apparently there is a problem between my router (Fritz Box) and the dhcp version on Archlinux. They don't interact correctly. To make it possible to have an internet connection, go into your Fritz Box settings and delete the IP related to your machine. Once you do this the router will give out IP's like it should. The problems lies with ...

The r8168 driver is a classical vendor-provided out-of-tree driver, with all the benefits and problems that come with it. The Linux r8169 driver comes with your distribution kernel, has much broader hardware support, but is possibly slower to adapt for new hardware. On the other hand, it’s supported by the kernel people, who have rejected r8168 on the ...

It seems the __devinit macros were removed from the kernel in 3.8. I got the rtl8192ce driver (from the same source tree) to compile and load by removing__devinit from pci.h and pci.c) and also removing all instances of __devinitdata from each sw.c (one per driver directory). A grep -R __devinit in the source root should show you all the files you have to ...

When you say you installed it alongside windows do you mean that you are dual booting windows and mint? Or are you running a virtual instance within windows? Either way try this from the command line: ifconfig wlan0 up && iwlist wlan0 scan | egrep -i "ssid|cipher" If you get some kind of error check to see if you even have a wlan0 config file in ...

I already solved the problem, to avoid this: [root@dhcppc2 compat-wireless-2012-12-18]# make ./scripts/gen-compat-autoconf.sh /home/kiwi/compat-wireless-2012-12-18/.config /home/kiwi/compat-wireless-2012-12-18/config.mk > include/linux/compat_autoconf.h make -C /lib/modules/3.7.5-201.fc18.x86_64/build M=/home/kiwi/compat-wireless-2012-12-18 modules make: ...

I tried LiveCD and it was the same - 100Mb. I tried to install side by side Windows 7, and after that installed drivers for network card from ASUS site. Network started to work, but network speed was 100Mb. Then I installed my old Planet NIC and it started work as 1000Mb, and real transfer speed is 50-70Mb/s. So, I'm not sure about reason of it.. Maybe ...
