NIC won't stay configured


mad:Good day, people
Here's my prob. I'm running Man 9.1, and things were going fine. THEN, I changed NICs. I had a realtec when I installed 9.1, switched to Dlink DFE-530TXS. Now when I boot up and try Opera or email, I get an error message stating ' Could not connect to remote server'. I go to control center/hardware, and auto detect shows the card in the list with all the info in the right column. I run 'config tool' and then everything is fine untill the next time I boot. I running DSL through a Dlink router. I have read forums and FAQs untill my eyes are ready to fall out, but so far, I haven't found anything quite like this.
Thank you for any help you may give, it will be highly appreciated.

Ps. I have an update. Today, after about eight hours of Evolution being minimized, it failed to retrieve mail. Reboot, Configure NIC, got mail. WHY.

you need to type in "less modules.conf" in order to see what is there.

You could also do it with the cat command: "cat modules.conf"

What you are doing is trying to invoke it as an executable. It won't do that.

When you list it out, copy/paste it here.

Okay, I tried both command lines, and received the message 'no such file or dir'. Tried as both user and su. Is there a certain place I should have opened a terminal, or something extra I should have added to the C Line.

You need to be root, or su'd. This should show the alias for eth0 which is your NIC. The correct module needs to be loading associated with the card.

# cat /etc/modules.conf
