asrock dual sata II Integrated NIC not connecting

I'm having problems with this device connecting. Mandriva x64 2006 version is what I am using. Some users on the HCL posted that this device works with kernel version 2.6.14. Mandriva is using 2.6.12 but it does detect a driver for the device.

The driver is - m5263 ethernet controller

I can also ping the loopback interface. The ethernet controller will not get an address from DHCP and I cannot ping my router with a static address. When I leave the interface on DHCP the connection icon shows disconnected. But when I use static addresses the connection icon does show a good connection but it still doesnt work.

Anyone know how I can get this device to work with mandriva 2006?
Or if it is a configuration problem only how can I fix it?

KDE InfoCenter should list pci devices to show what chip/module is needed for your nic. If not you,as root, should use lspci from terminal to see how nic is described. The chip the nic uses is what counts. Then you,as root again, can run lsmod to see if the needed module is loaded. If not then modprobe module-name may be needed.
You can also get the info from XP device manager or system info applet. Or a kanotix or mepis live-cd's hardware detction can help.
The Mandriva equivalent of Mandrake Control Center or DrakX may offer you easy place to install and configure that nic and get your internet/network setup. And the Mandriva Starter Guide if still available is indispensible for troubleshooting your setup. I still have and find my 8.1 and 9.2 manuals useful for general linux troubleshooting. Welcome to LQ and ask again if you need help
