I have downloaded hp-be2net_4.0.359.0-2_all.deb package which is used for NIC driver for linux.
I installed the above package using below command
dpkg --install hp-be2net_4.0.359.0-2_all.deb
Then Ii have checked whether the package is installed properly?
dpkg --list | grep -i "be2net" ii hp-be2net 4.0.359.0-2
How to convert deb to ko file? Because I need be2net.ko file which is the driver for network card . While installing hp-be2net_4 debian package I have not found any .ko file.

actually our network card was detected with be2net-2.101.205 driver in 2.6.32-5.686.while doing the ping to some ip address, reply packet does not come. but we are able to observe the reply as error packet through ifconfig output. So that we planned to upgrade driver . which we saw in the following url Reference Link
please suggest us, if it is there any better idea, if we are doing some thing wrong.
