i have a compaq deskpro en pc. my system has Redhat linux 8.0 installed. dhcp has been configured in our network and my system also takes ip from dhco server. i.e. it does not have static ip.
my problem is that sometimes while either downloading file or surfing the net ; nic gets hanged . it doesnt work at all. then i restart network services by giving >> service network restart >> it works for few minutes and then affter ............... the same probs..
has anyone out here any idea abt this .. Plz help out.
Second prob im facing is abt kernel 2.6.7. i Recently downloaded ( tar file ) and compiled the kernel. this kernel is not detecting the nic at all. dmesg shows nothing abt eth0 and if i give service network start/restart without doing anything it returns to prompt. ifup / ifdown also does not do anything.

i ran into a similar problem where the module just wasnt loaded. try as root
I believe eepro100 is the module name. Then check if eth0 appears. If so, put that command in a startup file like /etc/rc.d/rc.local (slackware)
I would just try to find the corresponding module and modprbe it and see if that helps. Does the output of "lsmod" as root shot anything looking like eepro or eepro100? Hopefully this will point you in the right direction
