Internet (eth0 interface) does not auto-start


Hello,

I am running Mandriva 2005 LE and my network does not auto-start with the computer.

I have tryed hundreds of times to check and uncheck "start network on boot" on Mandrake Control Center. I also have already reconfigured my internet duzens of times to no vail. I also googled without sucess.

Now the wierd thing: On boot time I can see the message: "bringing up eth0 interface ..... [OK]"

So I imagine, eth0 should be up, right?

Here is my ifconfig after boot:

Code:
[root@Lapa felipe]# ifconfig
lo         Encapsulamento do Link: Loopback Local
          inet end.: 127.0.0.1  Masc:255.0.0.0
          endereço inet6: ::1/128 Escopo:Máquina
          UP LOOPBACKRUNNING  MTU:16436  Métrica:1
          RX packets:23 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:23 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          colisões:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:1562 (1.5 Kb)  TX bytes:1562 (1.5 Kb)

sit0       Encapsulamento do Link: IPv6 sobre IPv4
          endereço inet6: ::127.0.0.1/96 Escopo:Desconhecido
          UP RUNNING NOARP  MTU:1480  Métrica:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          colisões:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
As you can see eth0 is not functioning after boot. Going to mandrake control center and reconfigure my internet will bring eth0 up, but just until reboot.

So, what command should I use on the command line to get eth0 up?

Is there a proper init file to put it?

Any other suggestions?

My internet is Cable with non-real fixed IP. The configuration is right cos it works once Mandrake Control Center brings eth0 up.

my eth0 after my internet is working:

Code:
eth0       Encapsulamento do Link: Ethernet  Endereço de HW 00:08:54:22:B9:1B
          inet end.: 172.26.0.21  Bcast:172.26.0.255  Masc:255.255.255.0
          endereço inet6: fe80::208:54ff:fe22:b91b/64 Escopo:Link

thanks a lot,

eth0: Unknown interface: No such Device

If I go to Mandrake Control Center and go up to half the internet assistent I get eth0 up.

The difference between before eth0 is up and after is:

8139too 22624 0

ummm ... maybe I should bring this module up on one of the init.rd scripts?

Here is before eth0:

Code:

Try
insmod 8139too

and then
ifconfig eth0 up

I don´t know where to add the insmod 8139too in your distrib?

maybe someone other knows but that should work.

If it works you could create a bash script like

Code:
#!/bin/bash
insmod 8239too
ifconfig eth0 up
make it executable and add it to the init.local in the init dir

I solved my problem with the wifi in this way.

Actually it didn't work that easy. To start with insmod could not find 8139too, so I located it by hand, copied 8139too.ko.gz to the root documents folders, gunziped the file and tryed to load it.

[root@Lapa ~]# insmod 8139too.ko
insmod: error inserting '8139too.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module

ummm ... perhaps I could look into Mandrake configuration scripts and see what it is doing to get the module up.

Here is the result of insmod before I copied the module file and gunziped it:

Code:
[root@Lapa dev]# insmod 8139too
insmod: can't read '8139too': No such file or directory
[root@Lapa ~]# ifconfig eth0 up
