    Question [SOLVED] Problem with Realtek RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev


    I'm at a loss as to why I can't post my message to this section of the forum. No matter what I try, it keeps on coming back with a message that I can't post links to other sites, even though I haven't done so, and I can't see where in my message it could look like I did. Do I need to post another 13 totally pointless messages before the message board will allow me to participate properly?
    Within the original message I intended to post were the outputs from several commands I was recommended to post back here, which might help to diagnose my problem. I'll try again later.

    What I originally wanted to write:


    Problem with Realtek RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev

    To see my original thread about this please point your browser in this direction:
    The coffee lounge -> 167697-intro-please-help
    I can't link even within this site as I have less than 15 posts.(even though the warning that comes up is about linking to other sites)
    Within that thread I was advised to post the output from these commands:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    lsmod
    dmesg | grep eth0
    and so:

    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network

    Having installed an older network card into a spare PCI slot, I managed to get my box online, from where I was able to download the Realtek Driver and also to install the driver for my wireless card. As far as getting hardware recognised and useable, this problem is now solved. Next up will be trying to get a bridge working between the wireless and the Gigabit Lan so that I can get rid of the cable trailing up the stairwell in the house from the router in the living room to the switch for the server box and the dual booting gaming machine in the office upstairs. I'll try to get that going by myself before I post another thread.
