Re: ethernet card

I think you need to look here:

Re: ethernet card

This is going completely off ubuntu im afraid, so i dont know if this will work for redhat but try:<br /><br />

ifconfig

<br /><br />

lshw -C network

<br /><br />and see if the card is recognised by both of them. You can also try:<br /><br />

dmesg | grep eth

<br /><br />

/sbin/lspci | grep Eth

<br /><br />you have to be root to use them i think.

Re: ethernet card

from a linux redhat forum:


As of 27 May 2007, in kernel 2.6.21.3, you may experience the issues with the r8169 driver if you dual boot Windows on some systems. Windows by defaults disables the NIC at Windows shutdown time in order to disable Wake-On-Lan, and this NIC will remain disabled until the next time Windows turns it on. The r8169 driver in the kernel does not know how to turn the NIC on from this disabled state; therefore, the device will not respond, even if the driver loads and reports that the device is up. To work around this problem, simply enable the feature "Wake-on-lan after shutdown." You can set this options through Windows' device manager.

hope that helps smile
