How to install this network driver?

Postby Hardenz » 2019-12-10 15:31

Hi guys

My wired connection is not working on Debian 10 LIVE USB so I think I need to install the drivers.

I'm following this guide: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en ... ducts.html

And I'm at stage 6. How do I find out the interface number?

Thank you in advance.

It is almost always eth0 for the interface number. You can also add firmware deb's to your USB that could help find the hardware without having to compile a driver.

The drivers are built into the kernel. You may need non-free firmware for that particular NIC. In the case of really new hardware, you may need an updated kernel and even newer firmware.

Have you tried a Debian ISO that includes the non-free firmware?

The OP needs to verify the interface number
How do I find out the interface number?

It is NOT all ways eth0 :
https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch05.en.html
[Warning] Warning

Instead of using the traditional interface naming scheme ("eth0", "eth1", "wlan0", …), the newer systemd uses "Predictable Network Interface Names" such as "enp0s25".
and
https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkConfiguration
Network Interface Names

See NetworkInterfaceNames. Since Stretch, new systems by default no longer use old-style interface names such as eth0, eth1, wlan0, wlan1. The new system uses names based on hardware location, like eno0, enp0s31f6, wlp1s7 (or in the case of USB dongles, MAC address: enx2c56ac39ec0d).

You can list interfaces with: ls /sys/class/net

Various examples below continue to use "eth0" as a default interface name, even though it is unlikely to exist on a modern system.

==
Code: Select all
ip link show
Should show you what you have, for example on mine it is "ens3" , there is much more to explain here, and I have run out of free time, but a quick hint, also take a look at the wiki:
https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkInterfaceNames
and
https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/amd64/ch06s04.html.en
