The only thing in your machine that's Nvidia is the video card. No amount of banging on Nvidia drivers is going to help your ethernet. You have two Realtek ethernet ports. The one you plugged in is controlled by 8139too and that's loaded, so OK. The other one is RTL8111/8168B which I'm not familiar with. It might be controlled by the r8169 ("modprobe r8169") module, but I can't promise that as I don't have to experiment with.

Ahh, look here for your driver: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...etDown=false#2

Be sure to look at the README. We may still have to help you with kernel headers and stuff, but at least you'll be working on the right driver.

Ok Virtuality

I'm not sure here, but I get the impression you have some sort of combo card, graphics/ethernet which I know nothing about, no need to respond to this post. But for my Nvidia gforce 6800, those scripts from Nvidia's site did not work for me, only errors. I've used the kmods from rpm.livna.org installed via yum for original kernel out of the box and was limited to 800 x 600 resolution, tried those packages with kernel 2.6.18-1.2869 (if I remember correctly) and had no access to many applications via main menu in root account (items missing). Used same method of installation for kmod-nvidia after updating kernel to last one 2.6.19-1.2895 (and kernel-devel, kernel-headers) and everything is now perfect.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=518761

Got to go, will not be able to continue, hope this helps.

Damn ok. What about the other two?

when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources
It is unlikely that improperly configured sources is the problem considering it is a well known distro, could you double check what you have in /usr/include. The main directories to look for are asm, asm-generic, asm-arch etc. Then we know that the headers are installed, which is always useful. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you didn't install the wrong kernel source...

or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device
Unfortunately I don't know how to check this.

Daws, the issue at hand is getting his RTL8111/8168B to work, not to compile the Nvidia graphic driver. It may boil down to the same thing, since the Realtek driver must be compiled, but let's take it one step at a time.

Why don't you disable the onboard lan and use the realtek one?

"i have an onboard nvidia network card,"

It doesn't show up in the output from lspci. Did you plug in two Realtek cards or just the one? "lspci" says you have two ethernet devices and they're both Realtek devices as listed below:

01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)

Added:
According to the Asus site: http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...41&modelmenu=2

The "LAN" device on your motherboard is the "RTL8111B PCI-E Gb LAN controller".

"so how do i get it to pick up the realtek one?"

You have to start by clicking on the realtek link I posted. Then you have to compile the driver. You're probably going to have to get your kernel-headers issue fixed before you can compile it, though. But, like I said, first things first. Download the driver, read the README file, and run make in whatever manner they suggest.

Driver link again:

Hold off on trying to compile that driver. I looked through the "r8169" driver in the linux source and it does cover the R8168B after all. So, all you should have to do to "activate" your card is to run "modprobe r8169". Do that and give us the output from "ifconfig" again to see if it worked.

Yeah, sorry about that. I don't have one of those motherboards so I'm having to figure it out as I go. See my previous post and do that.

Hmmm, try "ifconfig eth0 up" and then "ifconfig" and see if that does it. Also, do "dmesg | grep eth" to see if there's anything in there to help. If this doesn't get us anywhere, we may have to take a look at the udev file to see if that's wrong for some reason.

By the way, I got nothing else to do until about 2:00AM Eastern, so let me know when you've had enough.
