Asus A7V8X-X onboard ethernet problem


I cant seem to get this damn thing working.

Somehow I have one ethernet card physically in the Computer but I must have installed more than one driver because under the hardware tab in Network Configuration it lists a 3Com 3c501 ethernet card and a nvnet ethernet card. There is only supposed to be an Nvidia network card in here. So I suppose that the nvnet is the nvidia network card. Eitherway when I try to use either of them it says "nvnet device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization." or "3c501 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."

I suppose I installed the wrong drivers 2 times in order to get 2 networking cards. One I got from the Asus site the other I got from the Nvidia site for the whole motherboard.

Anyway, can someone help out a lost noob?

If using KDE go to System settings --> Network. That should give you the network devices you have installed. You can choose which one you want and configure it real easy.

Well I cant seem to get it working from in there. I can see what hardware I supposivly have. I have my dns server set. I can add a new device. But once I go to activate the device it says that the device isnt found and cannot be activated.

Edit: You seem to have the same board I do. Can you tell me what configuration you have for your network cards? Excluding IP addresses and such of course.

I have a VIA Rhine Ethernet card. It worked from installation as eth0.

Looking at it in Network(under System settings) Hardware shows the

Adapter: Via Rhine ....
Device: eth0
IRQ: Unknown

Devices show:

Nickname: eth0
Activate when computer starts
Hardware: VIA Rhine Ethernet card

The other things are either not important or not set.

Well I suppose I will have to poke around for a Via Rhine adapter driver so I can install that device... and get it working...

Thanks for the help. Ill post here if I can get it working or if I stay too stuck for my sanity.

Sorry for the bad forum etiquette(triple posting) but I somehow got it to work by restarting. It detected it automatically on restart. I know I hadnt installed anything since the previous restart so I conclude that insanity is to blame for the problem.
