Strange problem with RealTek NIC
I am just up and running with suse 10.3 but i am into a strange problem with my Realtec 8168 onboard NIC. Well this card is detect by suse and i can see it in my ifconfig entries. It says that the interface is active and all the information listed (static ip and gateway) are correct. But the network card itself is not powered up!!!
I know this because the corrosponding port indicator at my hub is not active. That probably means that the card hasnt actually powered up. Though linux is detecting it properly and showing it as active.
Also since the card isnt actually powered up i cant access any other device on my network. This same card is working flawlessly in windows xp.
Please help me out of this puzzeling problem.
please post the result of your ifconfig command here (if you can).
