First: Good that your card is seen

You could put a line to load it at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local - I don't know why it has problems loading it in the normal boot process, but it would be at least a workaround so you don't have to type it by hand everytime. Put all commands you needed at the end of that rc.local.

If your card is detected and you restarted rc.inet1 and rc.inet2 you have an address now (don't remember from which one DHCP is done). Is it the same if you start firefox and try to reach a website? From what I know nothing else is needed to use the internet connection that is provided by a router ...

Also...it's strange suddenly my soundcard stopped working, when i load startx as "root" or "andrew" it comes up with a message at start up

Code:
Sound server information message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (nosuch file for directory)
The sound server will continue, useing the null output device
Hey i was wondering, do you have MSN messenger by any chance? I'm sure that would be MUCH faster then these forums.

For example "modprobe e100". DHCP is called in rc.inet1. So if you wanted to be on the safe side you could add these two lines (as root, with any text editor) to /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

Code:
modprobe e100
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart

Only ICQ. Although I dont know if that's a good idea. You should post back the solutions here.

EDIT: deleted not needed icq number

I just wanna make sure i get this right

So i'd insert the codes

modprobe e100
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart

right HERE in the code

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
#/etc/rc.d/rc.local:   Local system initialization script.
#
#Put any local startup commands in here. Also, if youhave
#anything that needs to be run at shutdown time you can
#make an /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdownscript and put those 
#commands in there.

so just to get this right, i'd put them here**


Code:
#!/bin/sh
#
#/etc/rc.d/rc.local:   Local system initialization script.
#modprobe e100 /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart 
#Put any local startup commands in here. Also, if youhave
#anything that needs to be run at shutdown time you can
#make an /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdownscript and put those 
#commands in there.
like this?

I also found that adding
"/etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 restart" seemed to work.

Nearly. All lines starting with # are comments and are not executed at all. Create two extra lines at the bottom without the leading #

Yep. From that I concluded that the module's name was e100.

About the other lines, sorry, no clue if a better solution exists

Code:
ADDRCONF (NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
e100: eth0: e100_watchdog: link up 100Mbps, full-duplex
ADDRCONF (NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
so what do you think that ment?

(also where should i stick that text in the rc.local file

k, so that'd done (finished writing those modes to rc.local)...any idea what i could do now? when i type ip link
Code:
1|: lo: <LOOPBACK, UP,10000> mtu (more stuff)
2: sit0:<NOARP> mtu (more stuff)
3: eth0: <BROADCAST, MULTICAST,NOT CRAILERS, UP, 10000> mtu
the fact that eth0 is 3rd...would that mean anything?

...garrr i just want internet!!!! damnit! (i'm actually starting to get frustrated with this)

I think no, but am not familiar with this command and am surely no network guru

What did you do now? Can you for example reach your router via firefox browser? Have you checked that your internet is working/not working?
