Smile unable to start network service on my centos box


Hello ,

I am unable start network service on my centos box.

/etc/init.d/network start
device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization

lspci | grep Ethernet

Doesn't show any results.

It seems os doesn't identify my NIC. Any solution ?

I am using compaq presario model pc

Thanks ,

This seems to be a hardware problem. Can you remove and replace
the card? Or is it built into the mortherboard?

If reseating the card or moving it to another slot doesn't fix
the problem, consider buying a new card.

As long as you have an open slot you can install a network card.
I've done this before with new computers whose nics were not yet
supported in Linux. And it is much less expensive than replacing
the motherboard.

One other thought...have you checked the BIOS to make sure the
nic is enabled?

As you can here, here and here there are quite a few models. Hardware may vary between them so it would help if you boot the machine and attach 'dmesg' output as plain text file or provide hardware specs from your machines documentation or point to your model in one of these three lists or as listed elsewhere on the 'net. Also please fill in your distribution details in your http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/usercp.php.
