Re: Problem with NON-Wireless network card

Since I updated the kernel on my Dell Inspiron 8600 notebook running FC6 to release, my wired network card, a BroadCom BCM4401 100Base-T, is no longer found. Under previous kernel, which I still have installed, it finds this card and configures eth0 to use it. There's also a wireless card but I haven't had the time to get it working since upgrading from FC3 to FC6. It was using ndiswrapper and configured for device wlan0 before, but it seems like that might no longer be necessary. Anyway, there is no wireless service where I am and my wired card is not detected. Since it is not in the hardware list in the network configuration utility, I cannot configure it manually. How can I make FC6 detect my card?

Any assistance with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

First as root in a terminal type lspci and from the list should be your Ethernet card. Write down what it is called. It is kind of ODD that FC6 didn't auto-detect your ethernet thing. My old ethernet is always picked up. If you don't find it in the lspci list then your in for replacing the ethernet hardware.
