We have changed the OS to Fedora Core9 64 bit for work station. After that we are unable to get Ethernet. We have downloaded the Device driver for Intel(R)82567 Gigabit network adaptor from the internet and tried. It is installed successfully but still unable to get Ethernet connection. It is not getting activated

Use Network preferences to verify your TCP/IP settings and that Built-in Ethernet is your primary network interface.
Follow these steps if you are using Mac OS X v10.5:
From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
From the View menu, choose Network
Be sure that "Built-in Ethernet" has not the status Inactive listed below the entry in the list of network ports.
Make sure Built-in Ethernet is the selected, or primary, network
interface: Click the action button (gear icon) below the list of
network port and choose "Set Service Order...".Services can be dragged
to change order. Services are listed with descending priority.
Select a network port in the list of port to configure it.
You cannot install this adapter in a Win 7 computer because the drivers are not compatible with Win 7.
So far Belkin haven't updated the drivers for win 7 OS. The latest drivers for this adapter is compatible only with
" Windows 98SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit "
Click hereto see the belkin compatible drivers in the website.
Check the ethernet port with other spare wire if you have to check if it is a wire problem or if it is itself your ethernet port.
Try to connect your ethernet port directly to the router to make sure ethernet port is working and there is no connectivity issue with the switch.
Try to check the System BIOS settings and see if it is not disabled from there.
Lastly download any free Live OS of Linux and boot your computer using it. See if the ethernet card is working or not.
Steps from 1-3 is for checking physical connectivity of the ethernet port and the last step is for checking OS issue. If network card do not work with Live OS as well, you can directly come to conclusion that its ethernet card that is not working properly and you need to get is repaired.
The problem is definitely not with your docking station. Its the ethernet controller that is faulty. Possible reasons can be incorrect driver or device failure(not very unusual). You said that you "have tried to install drivers from Marvell but no luck". This most likely indicates the device(ethernet controller) failure. Anyways try to download the drivers from the link below and give it one more shot. Click here If it still doesn't work a new ethernet controller card should do the trick. Considering the fact that you can get a good one from brands like D-link, Realtek etc., for about 25$ it shouldn't be much of a problem.
OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.
All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.
The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.
Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.
if you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.
I googled this and found that both the notebook itself and the docking station have ethernet connections, the docking station ethernet connection seems to be between the usb and monitor connection, The notebook itself has a ethernet connection on the right side of the notebook near the back under a rubber cover. Let me know if that was correct or not.
