Can't bring up eth0 Interface at boot


Hi Folks,

My ethernet settings seem to disappear each time I boot. I have found this in '/var/log/messages' relating the the eth0 interface:

This is all I find in '/etc/modules' ...

scsi_hostadapter

There is no reference to eth0 or eth1.

Alot depends on which distro you are using, which is why it is always a good idea to post your distro when you are reporting a problem. Also you should post the kernel version.

What type of NIC card?
Do you know the module it uses?
What is the result of lsmod

Details as follows...

Distro: Mandrake 10.0
Kernel: 2.6.3
NIC: Intel 82547EI chipset on Asus P4C800-E Delux mobo

I don't know what module it uses.

'lsmod' gives the following:

That uses the e1000 module.

What is the output from running ifconfig.

Try ifconfig eth0 up.

Post these files:
/etc/sysconfig/network
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

If doesn't recognise the command 'ifconfig'. Have I got the syntax right?

Here's the contents of the two files:

/etc/sysconfig/network ...

HOSTNAME=blueyonder.co.uk
NETWORKING=yes
GATEWAY=82.32.16.1

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 ...

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
IPADDR=82.32.21.237
NETMASK=255.0.0.0
NETWORK=82.0.0.0
BROADCAST=82.255.255.255
ONBOOT=yes
MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=no
WIRELESS_ENC_KEY=""
NEEDHOSTNAME=yes

I have exactly the same problem with mandrake 10.1.
I have two NICs. The one that always loses its configuration is eth1, which is a RTL8029AS using the ne2k-pci driver module. Eth1 would disappear from my ifconfig list after every reboot. I would have to go to Network&Internet>NewConnection to reconfigure that nic. Start on boot has always been check. And I've tried switching nic, but the problem remains. So I'm pretty sure that it's not the nic that's malfuntioning.

I would be very interested to see a solution to this problem. Big thanks for all those who are helping.

How do you connect to the net'? ISDN,Cable Modem, DSL?
What daemons start at boot which do autoconfiguration i.e.;
hotplug,udev,kudzu..... Lastly why does your messages log show a failure for eth1 do you have two network interfaces on this machine?
