Angry ASUS PUNDIT R ( Onboard NIC )

Just purchased a ASUS Pundit R ( Booksize ) PC, actually about the size of a 80's era VCR.

The box itself is slicker than "Cow Slobber", very quiet and low-power. But I can't seem to be able to get the onboard NIC to even be recognized by FC 2.

This NIC is a "ATI IXP200 integrated MAC + RealTek 8201BL PHY", and I didn't make that up.

Supposedly Windoze will recognize it automagically, but FC 2 doesn't seem to know it's there.

Has anyone out there in FC-Land had any experience with this type of Onboard NIC or has anyone heard of a driver written for one.

Of course as always, I pre-appreciate any help or consideration on this matter by any and all. Whether you reply or not.

Hi !

I had also some problems with my Pundit and mabybe you have the same problem. To check it, try this :

lspci -v | grep -b2 IRQ


cat /proc/pci

That shows IRQ allocation for each card of your computer. Maybe several cards use the same IRQ or a bad IRQ (for instance: IRQ 0). You can change the IRQ allocation using the BIOS menu.

The easiest way is to ask to the BIOS to allocate automatically the IRQ for each card. To do it, you have to set the option "OS plug & play" to false. Indeed, the linux is not yet a Plug and Play OS.

I know, it's very simple solution but it works perfectly !

If it is not enough. Give me more information. Try this :

ifup -v eth0


ifconfig -v eth0



Good luck !
