Thread: How to add networks drivers to open-e

    Question How to add networks drivers to open-e

    Hi all, doing my first test with an Intel motherboard, DSS does not see the network card.

    As per the BIOS, here are the specs:
    Intel Motherboard DQ3510J_
    BIOS Version/Date Intel Corp. JOQ3510J.86A.1016.2009.0122.0019, 01/22/2009

    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz, 2331 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s)

    Network card: Product Type Intel(R) 82566DM Gigabit Network Connection
    PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10BD&SUBSYS_00018086&REV_02\3&18D 45AA6&0&C8

    In Open-E the hardware is being seen, but no driver is loaded. I see that it tries to load e1000 driver but it fails.

    Intel website info:

    Link to download: FullName=Linux*&lang=eng&strOSs=39&submit=Go!

    However I would like to know proper instructions (if possible) to install network drivers without breaking the DSS-V6 system. i cannot find a section "load your own drivers" on the manual.

    You didn't find that section, since this is not possbible with Open-E (any version). What type of NIC is that: onboard or seperate? Does it have an off-load engine? If not, you might want to look into one of the PCI-Cards that do have one and that are supported.

    There's no OS like OS X!
