mcc flashes, does nothing when activating ethernet
I installed mandriva 2006 for athlon 64. It correctly detects the ethernet card as nforce mcp51, but when I try to configure the forcedeth driver the control center seems to crash, sending me from the autoprobe option back to manually select the driver.
I tried to resolve this by using a different driver, the one from nvidia. I installed that okay and even established the connection. But I can only surf a few pages before it seems to disconnect. I go to a desktop tool that allows me to "monitor connection" or something, which tells me I indeed have no connection. Also, the hardware detector now hangs, where before it worked.
My connection is a high speed cable from the suite upstairs. XP uses it no problem, no configuration necessary.
Thanks for any direction, I want my life back!
