    Okay, there seems to be a problem with that card in DSL 3.2. What version of DSL are you using?

    Here is the workaround if you have 3.2:

    Looks like the user contributed module b44.o is the issue affecting the rtl8139 netcard.

    However, copying the prior b44.o from v3.1 does indeed fix this issue.
    After you copy over the b44.o from a prior version of DSL you must then run

    # depmod -a

    So, in fact the steps necessary to correct this issue

    First place your DSL v3.1 or prior CD into machine. Then perform the following...

    # mkdir /mnt/test
    # mount /mnt/auto/cdrom
    # mount /mnt/auto/cdrom/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX /mnt/test -o ro, loop=/dev/cloop60
    #cp /mnt/test/lib/modules/2,4,26/kernel/drivers/net/b44.o /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net/.
    #depmod -a
    #umount /mnt/test
    #umount /mnt/auto/cdrom
    #modprobe 8139too

    If you like you can cut and paste then run this script.
    I found that here:;f=4;t=17052

    As it says there, you will need a copy of DSL pre-3.2
