What chipset is the card based on? Can you post the relevent lspci information? Is the proper ethernet driver loaded? What kernel are you using?

Yah Hi there David

i got the info
the chipset is
RTL8139
49A21Q1

kernel version is 2.6.9-5.EL LINUX ENTERPRISE 4

the lspci info was like this it contained this entry
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Unknown device 1904:2031(rev01)

lsmod was something like this
8139too 25921 0
mii 4673 1 8129too

I did not install any ehternet drivers but i found a folder for linux in
the floppy which came with that , I suppose they must for linux

So how to install them also i know completly deleted each and every refernce to the ethernet card , Ya i tried once to install it again and it said that could not load rtl8139 module from /sbin/module ....

so see ya

Try using modprobe rtl8139. Also, did dmesg display any messages from the modules or related to eth0?

HI there

well it has been a while at linuxquestions.org that i have visited it but thanks to the email i received for ur one post as this thread was started by me .

Coming to the point i will like to tell u that this chipset isnt being supported by the linux kernel thats why it shows Unknown device
I had a network interface card of INTEX company , and simply got it replaced with a D-Link ehternet card u should probabl do the same or else u can develop a module for linux kernel to support it but that will take a lot of time so save further headache and go in for some other companies card well i suggest D-link they are cool and thats like it . I probably spent 2-3 days for this solution
IF u have a any other remedy u come across for this plz let me know

This problem should be mod load problem.

please try lsmod.you will find there will be no "8139too"

"the device eth0 does not seem to be present delaying initialization" cause firstly by mod 8139too.
I have not findout the way to solve this but this reply may help you the way to solve it.

have a nice day.

At last,we solved the problem.

1.
exec lspci

,there should be no ethernet device list in screen out.

So please check your ethernet card is installed properly.may be changed to another pci will be ok.

2.shutdown your server first,then move your ethernet card to another pci.power on.

login to server

3.exec lsmod

check whether 8139too have been loaded.if not

exec modprobe 8139too(or insmod 8139too)

reexec lsmod

again to check 8139too have been loaded or not.Should be successful.

then

exec service network restart(or ifup ethx)

wish you sucess!
