Intel 82567LM Gigabit Network Connector not detected

I have a Dell E6500 laptop that came with an Intel 82567LM Gigabit Network Connecttor. I have currently installed Fedora 9 on this system. Unfortunately I dont have wired or wireless networking working. This is what I have done so far :
(1)I downloaded the igb-1.2.44.9 driver. Once it was compiled, I installed it as a module using the command :

modprobe igb

When I run /sbin/lsmod | grep igb , the output I get is :
igb 77572 0

The output of lscpi is : (Only relevant output shown here)
00:19.0 Ethernet Controller: Intel Corporation 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)

And finally, the output of dmesg is : (again, only the relevant output shown here)

Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Network Drive - version 1..8-k2
Copyright(C) 2007 Intel Corporation

I then ran the command /sbin/ifconfig, but the only network interface I have is the loopback interface. Running /sbin/ifconfig eth0 returns the message :
eth0: error fetching interface information : Device not found

I have also tried using the Network Configuration utility to add eth0, but I always get the error message that the device does not exist.

I have the NetworkManager service running and I also tried starting the network service to see if that helps, but as far as the OS is concerned I dont have any network hardware.

I have tried the same procedure with the e1000 driver with similar results. At this point, I am not sure how to proceed. (I know that the hardware works because I have been able to get the networking to work with Ubuntu. I'd much rather stick with fedora though). Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,
I have Dell M4400 with the same Ethernet adapter 82567LM. I downloaded driver from Intel site:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=3003&OS FullName=Linux*&lang=eng&strOSs=39&submit=Go!
I proceed as written in the attached README file and was able to connect to network. Unfortunately the connection breaks after random time usually several minutes and can not come back.
I use Fedora9 64bit. I'm gonna try 32 bit.
Maybe you will be more lucky.

Maybe you should upgrade to kernel-2.6.26.3-29, I tested this work which is build with e1000e 0.3.3.3

Just to add to this...to get working wireless and ethernet (that won't kill your Gigabit card):
Run the kernel-2.6.27-0.380.rc8.git3.fc10 series (or newer...DO NOT run an older 2.6.27 build, trust me...I run 382) from Red Hat's Koji server with the required dependencies (plymouth, mkinitrd, nash, libbdevid, etc...).

Tutorial?

Hey, I have the same problem. Fedora 10 doesn't reconize the NIC. The Intel 82567LM gigabit network connection.

Can someone write me up a small mini tutorial on how I should get this working? I have access to the terminal only since the video drivers sitll have to be dealt with after.

Thanks.

Can I just rpm -i this kernal?

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i686.rpm.html

I'm using 32bit.

Fedora 10 is in the development stages (should support the INTEL 82567LM NIC with the latest kernel). Fedora 9 and the latest kernel supports your NIC. If you still need to use F10, try compiling the e1000e driver into your kernel. You don't need to compile the kernel itself just build modules.

Get it here and follow the INSTALL/README

Can you point me in the direction a bit?

Normally when I upgrade the kernel, I just use yum.

Should I download a rpm of the kernel? or compile it myself? I think the rpm will fail because of some depedencies.

If you redownload the Fedora 9 ISO it will support your NIC. every month or so Fedora updates the ISO's to include the latest updates. Go here to download the torrent --------->http://spins.fedoraunity.org/unity/t...081004-re-spin

Based on what do you say that? I'm looking at several different Fedora mirrors, and all the ISOs for Fedora 9 are May 7, 2008, and never updated. And the May 7, 2008 ISO does not support this NIC. You post a link to a registration required forum that has nothing but jigdo/bittorrent links. That, to me, is not a "fedora updated these", that's someone else updated packages and put out their own dvd image. Is that what you're referring to? I've never seen Fedora update their ISOs.

Intel 82567L NIC not detected

I have a possibly similar issue of an Intel 82567L PCI express network chip not being recognized on an Intel Atom Z530 based computer. It works on Fedora 10, but I had to downgrade to Fedora 5 and I'm having trouble.

Why I am using Fedora 5: I had installed Fedora 10 and that found the network chip and set up eth0 properly. But F10 does not work with the Intel craptastic IEGD stuff I want to install, and in fact no GUI / X server is working at all after installing F10. Fedora 9, 8, and 7 do not detect the hard disk (both anaconda and Live CD) so I can't install those. But Fedora 5 will detect the disk and install and run X (no direct rendering), but there is no eth0.

I compiled a vanilla 2.6.24 kernel based on my FC5 config and then installed the Intel e1000e-0.5.18.3 as per its README. It doesn't work though.

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# modprobe -v e1000e
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.24shk/kernel/drivers/net/e1000e/e1000e.ko
it doesn't show up in lsmod:
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# lsmod | grep e1000e
[root@localhost ~]# lsmod | grep e1000
[root@localhost ~]#

[root@localhost ~]# lspci
(other lines omitted)
Code:
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 10d3
dmesg
(last two entries)
Code:
