Problem with network

Hi, I am from Germany.
I tried first time Icaros. I installed it on an older Acer Travelmate 244lc notebook. Everything went fine with installation.
Only the network is not working. When I open Network prferences it tells me :
Name= net0 | Active = * | Device = pcnet32.devic | Unit = 0 | Adress = Automatic

IP Mode = Automatic
Hostname = arosbox
Domain/Workgroep = Workgroep (which I changed to this)
Check for Start networking during system boot.

With these settings I tried to ping via CLI my router. No luck.
I changed the IP-Mode to manual and the IP adresses into my range. Again I tried to ping via CLI my router. No luck.

Any chance to get it working? Thx Jan

Are you sure the pcnet32.device is right for your network card?

A quick Google suggests you should be using rtl8139.device.

As others have said try the 8139 driver

https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Pla ... _Complete_System_HCL#Acer

In the second section covering 800 series machines, could you check audio to see if it works. I believe someone tried an old isa based sound card and not the later ac97 version. Our AC97 support can be hit or miss unlike the later HDAudio.

He doesn't have an 800 series machine.

A relatively modern laptop with an ISA sound card? Or do you mean the internals of a PCI card that is ISA-based?

Aren't they both hit and miss?

Hi,

Oh, my mistake, thought it was a 845GME chipset.

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/CS4239 suggests so at least the first few in that Acer series until they got AC97.

True but I seem to have more luck with HDAudio, due to Davy's, yours and now Hean8209 work over the past few years.

Jeff.

Strangely, I've had much better luck with AC97, as long as it's Intel, although often not all output ports are active.
