Network card problem.
hi, im using dsl linux for the first time and the live cd was ok. I had an internent connection on it, but after installing it to my HD, it didnt have net or lan, althought it detected my hardware realtek fast ethernet controller; driver 8139too. i tried the configurations and have been disappointed, i also used lsmod and saw that my ethernet was not there. on the dsl system stats it displayed like this:
Hardware_Fullname="realtek fast ethernet controller"
(the address of the hardware should be here normally but it did not display it.)
E.G. ETH0 etc....
Then the address comes here. empty as well.
How do i troubleshoot this problem. I also used modprobe 8139too but said that there is no such directory.
please help out, i really appreciate it. thanks.
What is the output of the following command?
find /lib/modules -name '8139*'
find /boot -name '*config*'
ls -al /proc/config.gz
