Hi guys I just fresh installed gentoo on an old laptop and on makemenu I cannot seem to find my ethernet controller so I just chose some generic that would ble close to mine, and after reboot I can`t find eth0 but only my wlan.

Here is my controllers:
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566MM Gigabit Network Connectio n (rev 03)
Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedro n] Network Connection (rev 61)

Im new to gentoo so dont be mad for my noobiness :oops:

dcd94,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Your Intel Corporation 82566MM needs the e1000 Intel driver.

Thanks for the reply, It is already installed from before, what should do now?

EDIT: I found it out..I feel really embarrassed now.. I had to build in e1000e into kernel, i had to do lspci -k and i found out what driver it used on livecd.. so sorry for wasting your time :oops: you can now close the thread
