gigabyte ga-7n400 pro 2 lan problems

I'm having some trouble getting this thing to work. I'm using fedora core 3. My ISP is comcast and I've tred hooking it up stright up to my cable modem and I've also tred hooking it up through a router. I'm not sure what's wrong and I've tried a lot of different things. BTW my router is a linksys model #befsr41

Thanks in advanced

Have a look at the Linksys Site. There is also a Router Setup Wizard that looks like it may be helpful.
Good luck

hey dude,

I'm just replying to let you know this mainboard works practically perfectly with linux. I've been using slackware 9.1 thru 10.1 with kernel 2.4.2x (2.4.27 at the moment) and the network card works fine. Admitedly i use a gigabit intel pci network card cos i like intel stuff :P but i have used the onboard network card as well from time to time.

hope you get it working
