Ethernet connection not detected


I just set up my 2nd system with linux 9.0, and it will not detect the onboard LAN or the PCI card that I put in. I've even tried to uninstall and reinstall linux and that didnt work.

I'm very new to linux and any help is appreciated.

The first system I set up with linux is working fine and has no problems.

check ifconfig

please post more specific information. ( for example post output of 'ifconfig' and 'ifconfig up eth0' ). First of all are network card modules loaded?

the ipconfig gives me this info:

LInk encap: Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:371 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:371 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:24951 (24.3Kb) TX bytes:24951 (23.3Kb)


I dont really know what you mean by the network cards being loaded.

it's possible that your card module is not loaded

for example for via-rhine you must run

modprobe via-rhine

after this setup network interface

ifconfig eth0 [YOUR IP] netmask 255.255.255.0 gw [YOUR GATEWAY IF YOU HAVE]

if yiu have a gw you must set routing tables by route!

Are they wireless devices? If they are, try the Madwifi drivers:

No they arent wireless. I tried to add the realtek ethernet manually, it even has it listed in the ethernet hardware list. But once i try to add it, it says it is not connected. It says the same thing when the system is starting up.......something like the process is delayed because its not present.
