rtl8101e integrated nic cannot see router
 
Ive gone insane! been at this for 2weeks. I have a k9agm2 mb with integrated realtek 8101e nic card. If I plug clearwire directly into it no problem, but I got a router so family can use internet. set 2 other pcs up with pclinux 2007, wireless 1usb 1wlan. both can see belkin wireless g router, both with stat ips and dhcp. my nic is a sold light until pclinux says something like starting eth0, then it starts blinking. Everything works fine in xp and vista.(oh sorry dual booting xp,vista,dreamlinux,mandriva,elive,zenwalk,mint,and dsml.) I know got a little carried away when I decided to move to the south pole and grow a feathered tux.

anyway. I am a noobie to linux, luv it except for this network thing.

Ive tried just about every driver I could find. Tried the disable enable wake on lan. tried most drivers with make install and ndiswrapper.

here is what I currently have for ifconfig

What ever information anyone needs let me know!
I would really appreciate some help on this, Its probably something simple but Ive read anything and everything semi related and some not even closely related hoping for a clue.

thanks in advance for any help pointer or suggestion?
In the meanwhile Ill be beating my head against the wall hoping someone replies.

Please please and thank you!

OK Made a few changes. multi-boot xp/pclinux/slackware 12 (which for some reason has no problem using onboard nic through router) The only linux so far that can do that. Believe me I have a lot of live cds.

Maybe there is someway to take the driver from slackware and put it in pclinux. Or how can I find out why slackware is working and compare it too some how to pclinux.
I deleted vista since I could never find the option for wake on lan like in xp. Got a new nic card.
I would still like to get the onboard to work. Linksys fast ehternet 10/100 is the new nic. If someone could point me toward a "networking for noobies" step by step I would be very grateful. Because even the new nic will not use dhcp or static ip with router. directly connected to internet its fine.(and thats only if I use live cd, live cd doesnt work through router either, which tells me theres something wrong with my setup.Which isnt surprising as much as I messed with it trying to get the onboard nic to work.)

So basically same problem can only get internet directly from clearwire modem and not through router.

Id really appreciate it if someone could give me a step-by step way to setup the connection to the router or/and a step by step way to check or test why nics cant see router. Its software related,obviously because they work. Everywhere I read about the on board nic if you use dhcp with your internet provider you should be able to do the same with router.(wireless puters work fine.)

PLEASE PLEASE will someone help me I know its got to be something simple that Iam overlooking. I hope.

Update: Linksys nic is working with router. Wish I could say I know what I did but I dont recall doing anything since last update. Booted into xp couple of times but never changed anything with nic cards.

I would still like to find a way to get my on board nic rtl8101e working so that I can put this nic in the puter for little sister so she can have internet. I would really appreciate any help on this one.

Thanks and have a great day.
