    Testing a new nic

    I've just placed a US Robotics 10/100 nic (model - 7900) in my pc and switched it on. SuSE didn't say it found anything. I went into Yast2 and the network car section. I clicked add and just clicked next till the end of the wizard.
    I now have what says
    Ethernet Network Card
    Configured as eth0 with DHCP
    Is there any way I can test to see if my network card is installed correctly and working. I haven't installed the network yet so no cable is plugged in to the card.

    Any help please (BTW everything works fine in winfdows)
    Ubuntu Jaunty :: Arch Linux (current) :: Acer Aspire 1692WMLi

    try to check if eth0 is up with the command ifconfig. You can also check if the modules for the NIC is up with lsmod. dmesg and /var/log/messages should also have some information.

    Good luck
