I'm new to the Linux world and am having a NIC detection problem with Fedora Core 2. I have two NIC cards in the box, one on the motherboard (which is detected) and on PCI NIC (not detected). typing lspci -v seems to show the PCI NIC, but that is far as I can get with detecting, configuring, etc.
Ok this was the same problem which i had faced long ago and one of my friend helped me out
This is probably because the chipset of your nic is same to the other on also.Because i heard that linux will not load the driver for the same device twice.But in the case of installation it will.But after postinstall probably not.I am assuming that you have realtek chipset in the nic.you can verify by
it will be something like the following
alias eth0 8139too
alias eth1 8139cp
the device eth0 is taking 8139too.that means linux loaded the driver for eth0 first.then only to eth1,which is taking 8139cp.For this i did the following.
I'd try a live CD such as knoppix and see if it autodetects the card. If it does, I'd check to see which module (driver) it choose to use. Assuming the CD has a 2.6 kernel (recent knoppix, for example), try the following command:
