Nice RatMan    8)

That is an interesting question and I am curious where the data is retrieved from because though mine shows the following it is much much older than that.. On that date shown I took an fsarchive from another machine I was shutting down due to a power supply failure

My guess is that this is from an install from 4 years ago at least.. as a matter of fact there is a thread somewhere on here where I had my last critical failure (Perl Jam II I will find it) which would have been my actual last install .. I intend to keep it alive as long as as I am

WOW longer than that actually... time is getting away from me ... PackRat and I discuss Perl Jam I and II woes

The other side of that is where, most of us keep a separate /home, a 'new' install is really just a refresh of the OS so we can get back to our settings...  8)

Hi PackRat

Thanks for the clarification

As far as I  can see I'm going to have to  buy a wireless card as i can't find any mention of wireless in the online manual or for that matter Bluetooth but i have a Bluetooth adapter so that's working anyway

A cold January night, contemplating the end of the American Republic and marveling at how much I still admire what VSIDO is whilst listening to Pink Floyd and Welcome to the Machine on GMB

Happy new year, I guess

That ethernet controller is the one listed by the lspci command:

Code: [Select]
02:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
So that's your wired network.

In the documentation for your specs you see something like:

Code: [Select]
Wireless    Dell Wireless-N 1705 and Bluetooth 4.0
or something like this in your lspci -

Code: [Select]
01:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
If it's not in the specs for the computer, you probably don't have wireless. You would need to buy  a wireless network adapter of some sort.

Hi PackRat,

At the moment my PC is hardwired to the router.
The system info says that my Ethernet controller is a
Realtek Semiconductor Co., LTD RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
I assume that is what you mean

 You will need to know what brand your wireless card is before you get the firmware. There is nothing listed with those terminal commands. I assume you are not using wireless to connect to the internet.

Check your computer specs in the operator's manual or find the model online and read the specs there. Once you know the brand you can get the firmware package.
