Network Card Troubles

Postby Slack12990 on Sun May 11, 2008 10:49 pm

I have 2 Network cards that I cannot (for the life of me) find the Linux drivers for.

One is an IBM PCMCIA EtherJet Ethernet PC Card...Pin Number: 72H4041

The other is the ever loved Belkin N1 Wireless Notebook Card Part#: F5D8011

I'm a bit new to the Linux world so can someone help!

Does not look promising
In a terminal run
lspci
or
lspcmcia
look for the cards and find their "bus id"
Google for that and Linux or Gutsy or Daryna

The laptop is an IBM Thinkpad A21M. Old, I know and turns out that its Darnya, I was mistaken before. I'll post that for you when I get home.

Do I need to find a driver for my motherboard because the laptop is old and still runs off of serial?
