NForce Integrated Ethernet
I can't seem to get my ASUS Crosshair's built in ethernet to work consistantly. Ive tweaked bios and done all sorts of stuff, and it works maybe 1/3rd of the time. Some times it works, some times it doesnt. Same for both of the ethernet ports. Even changes between reboots! I replaced the cable and the same result. The wierd part is, when I installed it got internet with no issue
booted up, and it stopped working. The previous install it didnt work during install, but worked fine during use, till hd corrupted and reinstalled.
The kernel does have the forcedeth module loaded, and unplugging/plugging in the network cables yields the correct link up/down messages.
The exact symptom is just failure to dhcp. Dhclient the interface tries for about 5 mins at apparently random intervals, then fails and exits.
And the wierd part is, it works 100% of the time, guaranteed, in Windows XP (on another hard drive).
