[ubuntu] [karmic] New Vostro 230 Ethernet Card Not Showing

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey all, Essentially, the ethernet card does not show at all on my brand new Vostro 230. I installed 10.10 and the card showed up and worked perfectly, but unfortunately I need to run Intel Vtune for some research, and it only supports up to 9.10 so that is the version I have installed. This is a intel core 2 quad, so I am running 9.10 desktop amd64. Based off of this thread it seems that I need to build/install the bcm5700 driver module. I have been doing my best to do this, but without internet it's been pretty tough. I am hoping someone can help me bumble through this :) What I know: (HowTos)
