Need help! Internet not working :(


Hello,

I reacently installed RedHat Enterprise v3 on a Dell PowerEdge SC 420 server (text mode). Now i have big problems getting internet connection to work

Its connected to the internet using a highspeed ethernet connection, and this is what happens:

I type ifconfig then only "lo" shows up...
Then i type: lspci and I find this linle:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcome Corporation: Unknown device 1677 (rev 01).

Im guessing the system cant find any drivers.... but im just a noob, how am i seposed to fix this *cry*

I read on the wiki basics here on linuxquestions that i need to find the drivers or something but i have no clue how to move on...

Help is greatly appreciated!

The PowerEdge™ SC430 has an embedded Gigabit NIC as standard. I think the same goes for SC420. There was no more info on the page. If that dosnt help then ill have to phone them on monday

1. Find out what the network card is, what chipset is it.
2. Download the driver, which are bunch of files
3. Compile the files and install them on the system, there is a README telling you how to.
4. Bring up the interface, usually it is called eth0
5. run ifconfig, post the result here
