ethernet card not working properly
Good afternoon. I have been working on this computer for maybe 3 or 4 weeks now and have had very many problems that I have worked through on it. The thing I've been stuck on for about a week now is that one or both of my PCI ethernet cards won't work.
Symptoms with one ethernet card: eth0 is recognized and initialized and is shown to be working by the OS (redhat). but the LED's on the NIC card do not blink nor can i ping from this computer to another computer on the network or ping this computer from anothre computer on the network.
The network is not connected to the internet, just a couple of computers connected by a hub.
here is some useful information:
OS: redhat 7 or 8
I'm not sure of the specific model, but it had this written on the card:
lspci | grep Ethernet
00:12.0 Ethernet controller: Lite-On Communications Inc LNE100TX (rev20)
dmesg | grep eth0
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
eth0:Lite-On 82168 PNIC rev32 at 0xc4888f00, 00:A0:CC:62:F0:A1, IRQ 10
I'm not sure what other information would be useful, but I've tried installing and uninstalling. I've tried atleast 3 different NIC cards (all the same make & model)
The computer is actually an old web server and so it worked fine until 3 months ago when we shut it down. I am trying to get it to serve up some php pages utilizing mySQL databases that were already on the server. I don't need it on the internet, just to connect to my network and I can't get it to communicate with the hub it is connected to or anything else it should be doing.
Any suggestions for trouble shooting are more than welcome.
