    Sabayon (Gentoo based) does not see my modem


    I can't connect to the internet in Sabayon 3.4.
    I have a Realtek RTL8139/810x network card, and a Comcast Arris cable modem. I tried to log onto 192.168.100.1 (the modem) with no luck. I get the message that I can't connect to the network. I can connect just fine in Windows, but I want to stay in Linux.

    Do you have the correct module (8139too) loading? Check it with lsmod. These cards have drivers built-in to the kernel.
