Question Install NIC driver & edit Network properties?


I have RH 7.3. How do I install my NIC drivers via command line?

And, how do I edit the network properties of the NIC cards (there are 2)?

Thanks for your help!

to change ur NIC settings
u need to edit
/etc/sysconfig/networkscripts/ifcfg-eth0 & eth1
and are u sure that ur NIC driver is not installed??(i.e the kernel does not support ur NIC)

I figured it didn't see the NIC's cause it didn't ask for IP info during the install.

So, can anyone explain to me how to install my NIC drivers? I have an Intel server board which has 2 onboard NICs (e100 / e1000). RH 7.3 doesn't see them by default.

What NIC's are you using (make and model) and what is the result of running these commands:
Code:
lsmod
lspci
ifconfig
The first command lists the kernel modules that are loaded, the second lists the PCI devices that are installed, and the third one lists your current network settings. Knowing those will be needed in order to make meaningful recommendations. -- J.W.

Is there a way for me to have these outputs write to a file. This is because that box is not online (obviously), and I cannot simply copy n paste the results into this thread. This way I can put the results on a floppy and copy them to this machine which I am writing you from. Thanks!

Just redirect the output to a text file. Example: "lsmod > output1.txt" (no quotes). That ought to do it. -- J.W.
