OpenSUSE 10.2 and Intel 82546EB - Why is this so hard?
I have a Intel 82546EB card installed as Eth2 on a box running OpenSUSE 10.2.
The firewall has been disabled and the static IP, mask, and gateway have all correctly been configured using Yast. Ifconfig doesn't report any messages and neither does dmesg. Network card shows a link light, I can ping the loopback and the IP of the card, but can't ping anywhere else.
I downloaded e1000-7.4.27.tar.gz from the Intel web page, compiled them, ran rmmod e1000, and then insmod with the full path to the new e1000.ko file but I get the same behavior.
Is it possible the card is just fried?
