    uh, that wasnt the solution to the question though,did you not read the description? Illl rephrase some of my description. All wires hooked up properly. Nic card cant be bad cause it works when connecting directly to router. However, i need to make it work using the setup described above.

First, check your cable. loose cable connection often lead the cause of that error. second. check the lan card of your linux pc. If your pc is a desktop type pc, try to replace the lan card and . Make sure that the lan card is detected by your system. try to connect on the internet again.

Internet connection problem My older Compaq evo tower suddenly stopped connecting to the internet tried an other wire still nothing an even older computer connects fine what could be my problem


redux 1.facts emerge.
Ethernet port dead, router ok other PC work there.
unknown card stated, of the 4 .
mint version v18. Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon
be important and even kernal version. 4.4.0-17?
HP EVO D510. year made 2002, even sold with
windows 2000, so old . 16 years old today,
(no spring chicken, and most new OS fail on all 16year old PCs, for good reasons, no new drivers)

it came new with these.
which one do you have.? PCI card.

Integrated Intel PRO/100 VM network connection
3COM 3C905C-TX network connection
Intel PRO/100 S management adapter
Broadcom NetXtreme based 10/100/1000 management Gb adapter

at the Linux command prompt
type
lspci -nn -v (enter) the 2 spaces are mandatory.

see this. in the stream of acts see ethernet pop.
(we can do this this in windows and linux now)

http://www.pcdied.com/example-nn-v.JPG

what is in that slot is anyone's guess, 100's of card there possible.
what I do is open the case side and look
read the card words there, stamped on it,
3com cards are JUNK, HP does not support it now.
(they own it and killed it, wiki HP buys 3COM 2010)
i think linux avoids it for the same reasons.
(reason HP does not make drivers for this card now nor host the old, dead as door nail it is)


what mint? V18 ,ok.
what card is there.

I'd run Ubuntu v16, with a NIC card they like.
Intel card
broadcom
Realtek
tops my list.

the Linux kernal is complied with some NIC cards.
only ,each version is different and very hard to pry this info from them.
sadly,

i see mint fails even on a new ASUS board
with Realtek RTL8111F
a vary common chip
the helper says kernal 4.5 might work.
but that is for newer chips never the old

https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comments/4f09o5/no_ethernet_with_linux_mint_173_cinnamon/


let me tell you how Kernels are built.
they delete old chips is the rule!
the newer kernals delete the chips used 10 years ago or older,
why
so the kernal is not full of 1000s of useless chip drivers,, making it huge.
reason #2, how can a new Kernal be tested on 100s more dead CHIPs, (dead means not sold, not found now) Impossible, endless task that would be and is not done, same rules MS PNP use.same reasons.


now that you know that
the learn what card you have,
you then ask the mint guys, what kernal
worked on that old card.
(if lucky some poor sod can remember that long ago and answer.

why not buy $20 PC used at GOODwill and is 2007 or newer, be really wise choice.
that is my full and long answer.
if you had told the nic card there, answers go faster.

so brave up see that CAT5 cable on rear of PC
where does it go?
inside,
if a card , what card?, only what card matters.
or buy new one that is supported, for say $10

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

Can I use this router with Linux operating system?


If this is a home router you were previously using with Windows it should also work with a Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu (and others).

This of course implies a successful Linux install with all your hardware being recognized.

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card


You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

Activiton problem


Linux XP has had several reports of problems with activation. Your best bet would be to contact their technical support. Or switch to one of the completely FREE Linux distros. Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint linux, Dream Linux, Mandriva, Knoppix. Are just a few that offer the same simple install interface and hardware support.

Linux XP is a free linux distro that charges you for pre-installing applications like "Wine" that run windows based apps. Wine itself is also free and can be installed on any linux distro.

Hope this helps you out.
