Have installed Slack 10.2 with a Linksys NC100 Ethernet Card. Computer is connected to Linksys WRT-54G which is connected to a Zoom DSL modem/router. I have been running Slack without issue, including using the internet without issue for 3 weeks. Booted up today with problems.
I have a laptop connected to the WRT-54G wirelessly without issue. Only experiencing troubles with Slack desktop.
Steps I have already tried. I have made sure the DSL connection is working with other computers on the same subnet. I have rerun the network configuration through pkgtool. I have rebooted to make sure that it had the chance to restart all of the setup scripts properly. I have "ifconfig -a", "lspci", "lsmod", and "modprobe tulip" all without figuring out the issue. I have also check to make sure the lights on the NIC were on, and I have a green light, it also shows up on the router as being connected or on.
I have included the following information to help provide solutions. Can a NIC just go bad all of the sudden?
