From the off position, turn computer on. As soon as possible press "del key" or F1 or <your computer Key> to enter BIOS. Inside BIOS, set Ethernet <enabled> in Features. Look at all the features. If your not using them, you can disable them. Your booting will be smoother. If you decide to use PCI Ethernet card [3COM^ example...$5.00 usually online] instead of the chipset on your motherboard; your choice, disable the on-board chipset in your BIOS. Then install the Ethernet PCI card into the motherboard. Rebooting will auto-detect the card and network and configure all your connections. I recommend this card because I have found it to work in all my Linux Distros so far. There are still Distros I have not tried, so I can't say it will work in all of Linux.

I used the procedure described a posting here with threadid=350564b except that I used "10EC:8167" (which is showed by doing a lspci -n) instead of "1186:4300" mentioned in that posting, and luckily it worked

But, for some reason, this change took some time to become effective (a few hours, even though I restarted several times, I had kind of forgotten about it until I noticed that now the card was present), why this is the case I do not know (I exerienced the same thing when I tryed the same procedure on another computer, with the DGE-528T-card mentioned in that posting). I know close to nothing about linux, so there might be a perfectly good explanation for this, but which?



fedora, installation
