r8169, amd64, 2.6.x kernel - networking does not work
Hallo everybody with r8169 integrated on MicroStar k8t neo2 and amd64.
Is your network working? When I use kernel (2.6.x) from different distributions (fedora, gentoo and debian; all for amd64 architecture), all seemed to be OK; no error in dmesg, kernel module loaded successfully, ifconfig and route looked great, but when i tried to ping anything, message:
ping_address (from my_eth0_address): ... network is unrechable"
I tried it with 3com card 3c59x (r8169 was disabled in bios; again, everything seemed to be OK) and result was equal.
When I tried disable apic, the problem was still there.
When I tried disable acpi, linux did not boot due to SATA discs problem.
Do you have any experience with it? Is there anything, what I missed? Does it work to you?
Thank you very much,
