Hi I have 2 NIC's: ADMtek|ADM983 & Realtek|RTL-8139
and I can't get either to connect to the internet Iím using a router 192.168.1.1 as my gateway and DNS but its still not working and every time i restart, the DNS changes to 127.0.0.1, Iíve tried this with both card and Iíve also tried setting them to DHCP but no luck what so ever! Both cards worked when I had Debian on with a 2.2 kernel but seem to have problems with anything above 2.2 kernels.

when setting static IP i have set card as 192.168.1.4 (works on 2.2kernel in debian)
running Mandrake 10.1

heres soime extra info:-
