Are there NIC drivers for X8DTi-F motherboard that work with Ubuntu 8.04

When trying to install Ubuntu 8.04 on a computer with a X8DTi-F motherboard with onboard NIC cards, the OS does not detect any network interfaces. It seems that Ubuntu 8.04 does not have the right drivers for the NICs, because Ubuntu 12.04 installs just fine. Nonetheless I need to install Ubuntu 8.04 on that system, so where can I get the right network drivers for it?

Nic card not working? How to troubleshoot? Is there a plug and play nic card that can be installed onto this desktop PC?

Hello Sqis,

You can purchase any nic card which is compatible with WinXP or 7.

Insert the card in PC Slot of the motherboard.

Install the driver for the card and it will work.

New motherboard makes my wireless nic loose signal.

It sounds like a driver issue.
I assume you mean the card worked previously on an old motherboard.
Remove the wireless NIC driver and then re-install it. I assume their are no yellow exclamation marks agianst your NIC in windows system properties? To see sys properties right-click "My Computer" select Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. Look for the network adaptors section. You can update drivers from here on your wirless card or even try the Troubleshooter tab.
if you don't have the driver CD let windows go onto the internet and search for a driver.
If you rely on the wireless card to connect to your internet connection, perhaps you can connect your computer to the internet modem or router via your computers LAN/network connection?
If that's not possible, download the driver from the NIC cards manufacturer website and pop it onto a USB thumb drive which can then be installed onto your new computer.
Last thought, make sure you are only using one controlling application for your NIC ie you use either the Windows Zero Config Utility OR the NIC cards manufacturer utily eg D-Link, Netcomm, etc etc
That is not both at once as windows has a major hissy fit.

Update motherboard for windows 7 and vista

that board is desinged to run xp i recomend bying a new mobo that is more compatible with windows 7 or vista
i say this because of the 2 gig ram limit vista services will chew thru 3/4 of that with a standard fresh install
im not familar with the requirments of windows 7 i imagin thy are similar to vista witch in my opion is the garbage os that ME was when it came out

thus meaning meaning windows 7 would be the counterpart to xp vrs ME

if your wanting to get away from xp try ubuntu out.

What was the old OS you had before? If it's not a variation of Linux, it might have a compatibility problem. Try reinstalling the OS you had before Ubuntu and see if it works.

Installing NIC card to dell optiplex gx100

NICs usually come in PCI interfaces. motherboards have usually four PCI slots to hold many devices such as NIC. just slide the card and fit it into the PCI slot. It could take any of the slots where it fits. the OS will detect it and loads the necessary drivers.

Ethernet driver for EPoX EP-8KDA3J

I have this exact same mobotherboard. Did you install the chipset drivers? You need to download and install the nforce3 chipset driver. It includes the nic driver and all other things you're probably missing besides video and sound.

I should tell you that my onboard NIC had problems on this motherboard. Sometimes it would lose connection, sometimes it would make my pc take 5 minutes to boot up when the cable was plugged in or just crash my computer.

I just use a PCI nic now. But you'll want to install that driver anyway. If you use a PCI nic, then go to Control Panel, Network Connections and right click the nforce nic and click Disable.

LAN automatically disconnects while downloading and starts working only after disabling and again enabling the local area connection

With this issue it could be the Hardware / Software compatibility. The first thing to do is ensure the latest drivers are installed or the NIC. If the latest drivers are installed I would recommend replacing the NIC. They are less than $30 and they come with great drivers, and if the old NIC is onboard it would be advantageous to get it off the Motherboard. It would be best to open up the computer before you run out to get the new NIC and makesure the motherboard can support a PCI card. This card slips into the White slot that is about 3 inches long. If you have a White slot that is about 1 inch long this PCI card will not fit into it the card you will need is a PCI Express x1 NIC. The rest of the information you will need is provided by the NIC Manufacturer.
