Badly Needing Help In Configuring Nic Problems




TO ALL MANDRAKE EXPERTS HELP ME

THE SITUATION:
MY OPERATING SYSTEM IS LINUX MANDRAKE AND LINUX SLACKWARE.
I BOOT FROM MANDRAKE.
I HAVE TW0 NIC THE 3COM 3C509B AND BROADCOM BCM94306.
ALL THOSE TWO NIC'S ARE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET.
I AM CONNECTED TO A PROXY SERVER.
I USED MY 3COM NIC TO CONNECT ME TO THE INTERNET.
I USED STATIC IP FOR THIS NIC(3COM).
I USED THE COMMAND modprobe 3c509 for my 3com nic.
(nevermind the Broadcom)

MY PROBLEM:
only my slackware can connect me to the internet.
my mandrake cannot,
ive tried pinging my ip or my loopback .. it did replied ,,
but if i ping my proxy server the says network destination unreachable.
It is important for me to connect my mandrake to the internet, because i will be using it for some important purposes.

I have tried reconfiguring all network configuration of mandrake. but it has no effect.

PLS GIVE ME TIPS OR HINT IN CONFIGURING MANDRAKE.

I have had a similar problem which was connected to ACPI.... If I had ACPI installed on my desktop PC the NIC would not function so I had to turn it off. On the laptop the problem was reversed, without ACPI, no NIC....

But the point to that story is the following... Both had the same problem. The NIC appeared to be fully functional in Linux but it would not physically send out any signals to the network. I believe that you have the same problem.

I would try booting Mandrake with the following boot option: acpi=off

With lilo you can do this by selecting the os you would like to boot, lets say it is named mandrake and add the option to it.

boot: mandrake acpi=off

I hope this will help you,

Marcel

You're welcome :-)

You can also add it to your lilo.conf
image = /boot/kernel
label = mandrake
root = /dev/xx
append = "acpi=off"
read-only
