What PCIe ethernet cards detected by Jessie on Install

Postby LordByron » 2019-01-29 16:39


I have a new dell precision 5820 on which I'm trying to install debian jessie.

It came with an Intel pro/1000 PCI-E I219 nic which uses the e1000e driver and so should get detected by jessie during the install, but doesn't.

I'm now considering buying an inexpensive ethernet card on amazon to use for the install (life is much easier if i can do a netinstal). Can anyone recommend an PCIe card which they KNOW from personal experience will be detected by Jessie on the install? I'm particularly interested in the following one since I could have it by tomorrow.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-EXPI9301 ... I+ethernet

However, I think it also uses the e1000e driver which I haven't had much luck with.

Many thanks

You have a new machine with new 2018 hardware, and you don't forsee any problems with installing an outdated 2014 version of Debian on it?

If you really need Jessie, run that in a virtual machine.

Some wired Intel NICs also need non-free firmware that's in the firmware-misc-nonfree package: https://packages.debian.org/stretch/fir ... sc-nonfree
