I have the linux drivers and tried installing but got an error that said the driver was not built for the Kernel 3. It still only recognizes the Xircom but not the built in NIC.

I said nettwork maybe it’s Puppy – let me try Ubuntu again – after a few burned discs – I used the alternative ISO and was finally able to make a clean install of Precise. I was willing to live with the Xircom until I discovered that the connection was not persistent.
Gentoo Forums :: View topic – ASUS P4RVM 3C Network Issues
Never having upgraded from Ibex, my system was in stasis until a couple of weeks ago. Updated some files and after reboot, I lost my ethernet connection. I installed Puppy – nwtwork, I was working off the built in NIC but for some reason, that connection got lost. I tried manually starting update manager and succeeded.
3Com 3c Network driver – QNX Newsgroups
Hi, welcome to the fora. I am trying to resurrect the 3com wired connection I have – although, the Xircom is netwrok – it still has persistency issues.
I dunno about useful purpose – but it was performing well when I use it as a print and file server. Apologies for the long story – but the question is – is there anything else I can do?
I chalked it up as the system was so compromised, I probably needed to reinstall the OS – I went back to my archives and found my old Dapper CDs and tried to reinstall.
I checked the blacklist as well and the 3c59x driver was not in there.
I have the linux drivers and tried installing but got an error that said the driver was not built for the Kernel 3. I did not specify it but I am using lubuntu Nothing – hopefully it was just the media – but since I was going to reinstall might as well use one that is apt 3d920 such an old machine.
I have seen a few folks with unclaimed wired ethernet issues but the theme is common with the wireless issues – i. I believe I installed Dapper on it and upgraded it up to Intrepid. I manually added the 3c59x module netwkrk startup and I know it loads because I see it when I lsmod.
I tried learning Netwok on the machine but also used it as file and print server. I would consider a Pentium 3 too old for any useful purpose, but if you want to run something Lubuntu I am trying to keep this 3c9920 alive for both sentimental and educational purposes.
Again, first you should reinstall using a supported operative system like the two posted above. I tried transferring a 10gB file and it stopped before it reached 1gB and appeared that it was disconnected.
Problems with 3Com 3C905B, 3C905C, and 3C920 network interface cards
It still only recognizes the Xircom but not the built in NIC. Puppy recognized the Xircom card at least and I was able to work from netwirk.
Installing with wired connection is the way to go. I 3c9200 searched the forum high and low but most of the unclaimed issues seem to be driver related – drivers that were not included in the base kernel did I say that right? I tried the ubuntu manual which talked netowrk adding vx, ep or ie but could not find those drivers.
Not even the Xircom was firing up. Thanks for the welcome! First step is using the latest software. In the course of my messing around with Ubuntu – I was ambitious enough to try setting up a fax service on the machine – and messed up the whole shebang so much so that my update manager would never pop up and anything I minimized never went to the taskbar.
So to netwirk – IRQ is ok, 3c59x module is loaded, blacklist is negative but ethernet is still showing unclaimed.
