ASUS P5SD2 VM motherboard doesn't connect to Internet


The motherboard has a SiS190 100/10 Ethernet Device. Apparently it worked once during installation and then never again. But it works fine in Win XP (in fact I have SlackWare installed in dual boot) My Internet connection is throgh an ADSL.
Any help from somebody will be very appreciated.
Thank you
Hector

lspci should tell you the PCI address of the NIC. Mine is:
Code:
04:03.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82546GB Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
Once you have that, you can look for in /var/log/messages to see what happened when it tried to configure. Look for the 04:03.0 part (but use your own address).
Code:
e1000: 0000:04:03.0: e1000_probe: (PCI-X:100MHz:64-bit) 00:30:48:d7:e3:66
Look for an error, but post back here anything that you don't understand.
