I'm new to freebsd but I have set up a couple of systems successfully before. My current problem is with a Dell Inspiron 7000 notebook. I have installed freebsd 4.6 with x running Gnome destop and all is well. The problems is that the network pci is not working. I did not have this computer connected to the Internet during the install but the card was in the pci slot. It is a 3 comm Megahertz card model 3cxem556 b. Both computer and card are about 5 years old. When I try to add additional network devices I get "faith0 <unknown network interface device> I can still configure it but it doesn't work.
I'm assuming its some kind of missing driver or a step I missed during the setup process?? If it is a driver I would need to know where to locate one an how to install it...what directory, etc. As well as any suggestions for working around the lack of a network connection. I do have another machine running the same os with a network connection. I could use a floppy drive to move files..... Any help is appreciated -bob [EMAIL PROTECTED] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
