Upgraded as in "apt-get install" ... or did you recompile it?
If you did an apt-get install, try inserting the correct module using
modprobe or insmod or modconf (which will update your
If you recompiled the kernel, check your kernel configuration whether
you have selected the correct module there.
Thanks for the info, but I'm not sure how to proceed. I've never in the
past had to modify /etc/modules.conf. Instead, I've used modconf to
ensure that yenta_socket was loaded and have been able to just install
the kernel image, update grub and go from there without a problem. The
only thing I've ever had to manually do was modify
/etc/network/interfaces to have "iface eth0 inet dhcp" and have changed
/etc/pcmcia/config-2.4 to change all references (in the past) for
"orinoco" to "wvlan" (this isn't necessary anymore) to work with my
wireless card. But, for this wired card, I've never had to do anything
to get it to work. As a matter of fact, the installation on my old hard
drive is practically identical to this installation and has worked
without any manual changes. I didn't do anything differently this time,
but just can't seem to get it to work. :(
