Int18 network boot and ASUS A7SC

Friends, I am in Chimoio, Mocambique, on a v e r y s l o w internet connection working for a NGO as a volunteer. I am building a thin client solution in Edubuntu Linux and need to boot over the network using computers with ASUS A7SC with SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet to get to the server. Bios provides the option called Int18 which I thought means the ability to boot over the network. I get the message "boot disk failure - insert system disk". With the hard drive connected this computer works just fine and I am actually sing it to write this message. This works great from my Compaq Armada M700 using the F12 option. Should be no network configuration problem etc. everything is in the same classroom. I would appreciate help with this - it is a very cheap solution for these dirtpoor schools I am working with. Best regards RolfJ

Re: Int18 network boot and ASUS A7SC

(from my bad memory) : check BIOS, there is a option in the PCI sub-menu for the network card. You have to enable a "bios rom" option somewhere (and not only the "int18" option).

Re: Int18 network boot and ASUS A7SC

If your target PC for installation cannot network boot On any machine: * Build an Etherboot boot floppy. kanga (the installation target) has an 3Com 3c905 NIC * Download and unpack Etherboot (etherboot-5.3.9.tar.bz2 from [WWW] SourceForge in my case). * Documentation from the [WWW] Etherboot documentation page. * Make the boot floppy (insert disk into drive :).

My asus cm6830-07 desktop will not connect to the internet

You will have to open up your network connections. Click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled. Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look for network adapters + expand Ethernet driver if you see a yellow Question / Exclamation mark ? ! or a Red X you will need to update/reinstall the driver for the device Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios. Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press Enter make sure its enabled then recheck the driveri t should be there k the driver it should be there make sure its enabledPci device arrows key scroll to nstalled if you computer came with a motherboard disk the driver could be on it or this disk provided by your ISP provider Internet Service Provider or you might have to download one if these packages are not the right On the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for tick in the box for windows software or all software box IE: Motherboard name Wireless or Ethernet driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

My Acer Veriton Z290 G, I cannot find the wireless network adapter. When I try to set up a profile to connect it, it says no connections available. I can connect through a wired ethernet connection.


The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Netwroking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacturer or settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Anyone know how to get ASUS Express Gate to go online with Sprint's mobile broadband connection? It works great whilst in Windows but will not connect whenI try to use the Express Gate...Really appreciate...

The problem is that Express Gate uses a cut down installation of Linux embedded on the motherboard to allow you to boot the computer in a very basic mode to access the internet to check email etc. Linux supports most network cards but it will not natively support your USB mobile broadband device. I managed to get my Vodafone aircard working in Linux, but you need to add drivers and kernel support for it and i'm pretty sure that won't be possible with the embedded cut down Linux that Express Gate uses.....

My friend's asus A6000 has problems connecting to the wireless network. We have broadband at home, but his asus can only access it if it's physically plugged into the router. How can he get his asus to...

A couple of steps, not sure if you have tried them already

1) Ensure that his wireless is turned ON, it also need to be compliant with the router signal, normall b or g, it probably will be

2) In the system tray double click the wireless icon and make sure your network shows up. You may need to refresh. Then click the network and connect, you may need your password.

As i said, not sure what you have tried already, if this doesn't work or you need help with these write back.

A recent mac laptop with Tiger & bootcamp/win XP will connect to the internet via a Netgear DG834G adsl modem with ethernet cable in tiger & XP but only in xp with wireless. Any advice? JL

If I understand you correctly you have an Intel based MAC, with the boot-camp boot manager, so you can choose to boot either from the native MAC OS or from Windows XP.

The system works fine from the MAC OS, but the (wired) ethernet does not work from XP.

1) When you boot into XP mode, the XP operating system is in
charge and the MAC OS is dormant.

2) Check the XP device manager to see if the ethernet NIC
(network device) is properly installed and if the device
drivers are functioning.

From Windows XP:

Right click My Computer ==> Properties => Hardware ==>
==> Device Manager ==> Network Adapters =>
==> Your network controller

Right click on your network controller ==> properties

Check the device status !!!

2) If the device is NOT working properly, you may need to
download and install a device driver for this card.

3) If the device IS working properly, you may need to run
the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD from the control panel:

START ==> Control Panel ==> Network Setup Wizard ==>
==> Next.

4) Assuming you are connecting to DSL with a login password,
use the: "My computer connect to the internet through a
modem" option.

If your DSL is always on, or if you use a local router to
connect to the DSL modem (the router does the work)

Then you choose the: "My computer connects to the
internet through another computer or a residential gateway"
