Network Card Detection problem


Hello All
I am using DG41WV Intel Motherboard , installing rhel5.1 .
Kernel version 2.5.18 . My linux installation not detecting the on board network card(Realtek PCIe GBE Family controller) neither during installation nor dynamically . Searched for drivers (From Realtek web) and installed them but again the same problem no detection.
Sugess me the best possibilities to get the card detected .
Thanks and Regards

Alright from the output of lspci | grep net it is clear that network card is not detected by the system. You mentioned the Kernel version to be 2.5.18, it should be 2.6.18. Could you please confirm by pasting the output of the following command:

uname -a

I would also like to know from where did you download the driver. Was it the following link: http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/...&GetDown=false

How did you install the driver? Did you use modprobe or depmod? After installing did you insert the module using insmod or adding the entry in /etc/rc.local?

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-8.el5xen #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:42:21 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I downloaded the kernel from the link pasted by you .
Installing the drivers using the autorun.sh script given in the same tar file after reading readme file from the same tar file .

after installing i expect this to detect .. never used modprobe command or insmod command ... for me this is first time problem ...so expeting to learn new features of linux .

Thanks and Regards

Ok so you have downloaded the driver from the same link which I mentioned and the kernel version is 2.6.18.8el5xen

Could you please let us know if you can see any file which says r8101 under the following location: /lib/modules/2.6.18.8el5xen/kernel/drivers/net

What is the output of the following command:

lsmod | grep r8101

Just out of curiosity, why you are using XEN kernel? Are you planning to configure virtual machines on this system?

Hello
There in no planning like to configure virtual machine . I am not aware of the usage of XEN part of the kernel so never bothered.
Specifically I am from electronics (VLSI) background but at same time I have the Job of installing linux + EDA softwares ...so you can think my level of expertise in linux .

Here I am pasting the log of the command asked by you ....
