I installed Elastix 1.2 on a laptop with usb nic (Moschip mcs7830) but I don't know how to install the nic drivers, I have downloaded the drivers and extracted but don't know what to do next. here is info from usb nic. lsusb -> Bus 001 Device 002: ID 9710:7830 MosChip Semiconductor and extracted files are: Makefile, mcs7830.c, mcs7830.h, mosinstall, mosuninstall, readme and couple release notes.


I was able to use Saleh instruction for an on-board Realtech nic for another person with a bit of modification but the last command runs to snag, here is his instruction

# tar vjxf r8101-1.009.00.tar.bz2
# cd r8101-1.009.00
# make clean modules (as root or with sudo)
# make install
# depmod -a
# insmod ./src/r8101.ko

You can check whether the driver is loaded by using following commands.

# lsmod | grep r8101
# ifconfig -a


after # make install
I received error message:

mcs7830: unknown symbol generic_mii_ioctl
insmod: error inserting
'/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.19.e15/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/moschip/mcs7830.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module

when I run lsmod | grep mcs7830 here is the result
mcs7830 23056 0
mii 9409 1

and when I ran ifconfig -a now I see usb0 Link encap:Ethernet HW 00:13:......
but no ip address.
