Internet is not working in RHEL server 5


Hi,

I installed RHEL server 5 in my PC, windows XP is already running in my system. I am not able to connect to internet from Linux, but internet is working in windows XP.

I struggled a lot but no luck, can you help me to resolve this problem.

I identified the below information in lspci -vv output.

I got the below error while restarting network under /etc/rc.d/init.d


[root@localhost init.d]# ./network restart
Shutting down loopback interface: [ OK ]
Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ]
Bringing up interface eth0: 3c501 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.

Here's a thread with a similar problem: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e1000e-725849/
They were recommended to compile a module, upgrade to a later RHEL, or ask RHEL support.

I am running RHEL 5 in my desktop with vmware workstation software which you can download from internet. And the best is you do not reboot my PC if go to Win XP .. you can run both OS in same time by creating RHEL as virtual PC.But you have atleast 1/2 GB ram in your Desktop for better performance.

Maybe, google the Linux driver you need (01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller rev 01) in Windows XP. Then download the driver to your desktop in Windows XP. After that, mount your Windows partition to your linux one, and transfer the driver from your Windows Desktop to your linux one. From there, you can install and hopefully get using the internet.

How many ethernet controllers are ther?
what is the output of "mii-tool eth0"
whether it is pinging properly with the loopback?
Is it a direct internet connection or running with proxy?

You need to load the r8101 module and alias eth0 to it.

Hi,

Thanks all for your help. Now internet is working in RHEL5.

I downloaded the RTL8101 driver after searching in goole and i ran the fllowing commands provided in readme file after untar the downloaded driver.

# make install
# depmod -a
# modprobe r8101


Could you please tell me how to mount the windows partition in Linux. Here I copied the RTL8101 driver from windows to linux using pendrive.


Thanks
Ravi.K

just share the drives "C" "D". Then fire the following command
#mount -t cifs //windowshostname/sharename /mountpoint -o user=administrator
Now it will prompt you for the password.

The next way is install the following rpms
dkms*
dkms-fuse*
fuse*
fuse-ntfs-3g*
Then again
#mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda5 /mnt
suppose hda5 is ur windows partition

Cheers!
