    Hi there — I’ve tried to look through the forums and there wasn’t a topic that was exactly “this”, so I’m posting here. I’ve been using ZS for a *while* but wanted to use the newest PC hardware available to me.

    I have a Dell Optiplex 780. It’s internal/onboard NIC is not recognized by ZS, but it _is_ under Knoppix 6.2 (which I used to see how it was being recognized).

    The output for dmesg under Knoppix is this:

    [   16.529292] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: (PCI Express:2.5GB/s:Width x1) 0:25:64:e4:ba:7b
    [ 16.529294] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network onnection
    [ 16.529326] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: MAC: 8, PHY: 8, PBA No: 2021ff-0ff4000000 IRQ 16
    [ 319.974059] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow ontrol: RX/TX
    [ 319.974062] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO

    So it’s using the “e1000e” driver/module, right? Under ZS, I can manually insert the e1000e module into the kernel, but I don’t know what to do from there.

    I don’t mind a messly kludge of a fix for this, but does someone know if it’s possbile to manually get this NIC to be recognized? My gut feeling was that if it’s not recognized automatically then it won’t work manually, but I’m willing to go with whatever will fix this problem if anyone can help.

    Thank you very much.
