schismoid - welcome to LQ! Most likely, something just isn't being activated as it should. As root, please run and then post the results of these 3 commands:
The first one will simply list out the PCI devices that you have installed, the second one will list the kernel modules that are loaded, and the third one will show your current network settings. Having this info handy will be very useful. Post the results, and that will be a good step forward in terms of solving the issue. (From the sounds of it, it sounds to me that you probably just need to load a module, which can be done via the modprobe or insmod command.)
penguin4 - I'm sorry but I do not see how a suggestion to call the manufacturer or the reseller(!) of a NIC will help the original poster arrive at a solution. The only scenario in which this advice would be helpful would be if the card itself were defective and schismoid was trying to get a refund or a replacement card. Based on his comments however, the card is perfectly fine, and just needs to be configured to work under Linux.
As such, if you have specific
advice to offer on how you would install and configure this particular NIC under FC2, I would encourage you to share your experience. If not, then there is no point in posting a response, as it at best does not help move things forward, and in fact at worst could be a counter-productive distraction. -- J.W.
