I have a Dell Inspiron B120 laptop computer with the Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller for the Ethernet card. The modem is an Actiontec GT701-WG.
Everything works fine in Windows XP. In fact, I am using this laptop in Windows XP to enter this message. So the problem is NOT a hardware issue.
However, in Damn Small Linux 3.3, the Ethernet connection does not work at all - neither the light on the Ethernet port on the laptop nor the Ethernet light on the modem are lit. When I go into netcardconfig, it shows that my Ethernet card is not recognized at all.
What do I need to do? If you tell me what commands to type, I can give you the output.
