Can you try doing "sudo modprobe sk98lin"?

i have tried "sudo modprobe sk98lin" but it has no effect - or i just cannot see any.

in lsmod there appears this entry:

sk98lin 194228 0

the network card is not detected.

i have tested the old kernel.

i have recognized that my network card seems to work with sky2 (see attachments).

this driver is not present in my new configuration.

Ok, can you attach the output of these two commands then:

lspci -vv
lspci -vvn

Thanks

Run this as root:

modprobe sk98lin
echo 11ad:4363 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/sk98lin/new_id

That should force recognition of the device. The device ID will be added in the next upload.

Well, it seems that the sky2 driver had support for 2 devices that the sk98lin driver doesn't support, and can't without extra patching.

I'm uploading a new kernel for dapper tomorrow that re-enables sky2 just for these devices.

Do you still need the output of "lspci -vv" and "lspci -vvn"? Should I still test "modprobe ... echo ..."?

Thank you for uploading a new Kernel. But can you please upload a new one for Edgy, too? Or tell the responsible guy to do so, please?

Bonjour

Comme mon anglais est approximatif, je me permets d'écrire mon message en français:

Avant la mise à jour du noyau, mes connexions internet marchaient très bien avec networkmanager mais depuis la mise à jour d'hier, seule la connexion wifi marche
