Just this evening I have installed Lion using my hack to an Optiplex 755 , all went well and good until I reached the how to connect to internet screen , the tab for LAN was whited out it gave to options

 

1. Connect via telephone

2. This computer doesn't connect to the internet.

 

It won't allow me to connect to the net via the usual network method and I therefore cannot install EDP?, everything went we'll is there something I have done wrong, or any way to rectify this.

 

Thanks

 

Should the internet be working straight away as it isn't or does EDP sort this out , or are critical Kent's missing to estivate the network?. Thanks for any help.

You need to tell us what Ethernet card you have in that desktop? Then, we should hopefully be able to point you towards a specific kext. I'd say there's a good chance you'll need the Intel 82566M kext, but we'll see?

 

Assuming you have the lspcidrv kext in /E/E, use Terminal to get your lspci data through command lspci -nn and post us the results.
