I need that Linux Kernel 2.6.35 recognize the i219-LM Gigabit Network Connection, is there a official released driver for this model on Linux systems? I have looking around the Web and on Intel Drivers page but I can't find the driver for this model on Linux, only in Windows. I've got this network model working with i128-LM driver in Kernel: 2.6.28.10 and 3.13, but no success on Kernel 2.6.35. (I can't update my Linux Kernel to a new one because of my production system environment). When I try to compile the driver this are the errors:

/bin/sh: línea 0: [: -ge: se esperaba un operador unario

Can somebody help me?

Thanks in advance

Hi samx881203,

Thank you for contacting Intel.

The Intel I219-LM Network Card is an on-board card. Try to search for the available drivers of your motherboard model.

Sincerely,

Sandy

Thanks Sandy,

I'm trying to seek, just like you recommended me, but I find no motherboard driver on Web, so I'm thinking I'm searching in the wrong way. Can you give me some advice? I'm having the same difficulty with the USB ports...
