A7N8X: Network adapter not working


Hi!

I'm a complete Linux noob and I'm trying to get my network controller running. It seems that problems with this particular one are quite common, but I haven't found a solution or was too noobish to understand it.

First some tech specs:

- Asus A7N8X (Not Deluxe)
- 2100+ Athlon CPU
- 1024 MB RAM
- Radeon 9500 Pro video card

- Mandrake Linux 9.1
- Kernel 2.4.21-0.13mdkenterprise

And here's what /sbin/lspci gave me:
Code:
00:00.0 Host bridge: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01e0 (rev a2)
00:00.1 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01eb (rev a2)
00:00.2 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01ee (rev a2)
00:00.3 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01ed (rev a2)
00:00.4 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01ec (rev a2)
00:00.5 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 01ef (rev a2)
00:01.0 ISA bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 ISA Bridge (rev a3)
00:01.1 SMBus: nVidia Corporation nForce2 SMBus (MCP) (rev a2)
00:02.0 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a3)
00:02.1 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a3)
00:02.2 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a3)
00:04.0 Ethernet controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Ethernet Controller (rev a1)
00:08.0 PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 006c (rev a3)
00:09.0 IDE interface: nVidia Corporation nForce2 IDE (rev a2)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AGP (rev a2)
01:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 06)
01:09.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port (rev 06)
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R300 NE [Radeon 9 700]
02:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R300 [Radeon 9700] (Secondary)

When I run ifconfig all I get is the I0, no Eth0.

Somewhere I read that acpi needs to be turned off in order to run this network card, therefore I typed acpi=off at the beginning of the installation. Dunno if it really is off or not now.

Thanks for any help,
Dominik

Are you talking about the onboard Nvidia ethernet port. I have the A7N8X Deluxe board and from what I have found on the net is that the built in ports for these boards are mega problems to get working. I went and bought a $20 USD Netgear FA311 pci ethernet card at Best Buy and RH9 autoconfigured it for me.

Yup, the Nvidia ethernet port on the A7N8X (Non Deluxe). I've seen quite a few different solutions for this problem, they either didn't work or I didn't understand them.

The only working solution seems to be a seperate network card...
