What is the NIC card type?

What module does the nic card use and does it show up when you do a lsmod?

How can I find out my NIC card type? How do I find out what module it uses? It's tulip, I presume? Here's lsmod's output:

OK I have spent the last hour getting re-aquainted with this problem, reading every post and following all links. About 30min googling.

Now from what I can gather that card has had compatibility problems. You need to try a different module (dmfe) and see if it works. To do that you'll have to edit /etc/modules.conf. You should have a line like this in the file:
alias eth0 tulip
Leave the line in the file but put a # at the beginning of the line and add this:

#alias eth0 tulip
alias eth0 dmfe

Now save /etc/modules.conf and do this:

service network stop
rmmod tulip
lsmod #Make sure tulip is gone
modprobe dmfe
lsmod #Look for dmfe module
service network start

See what happens.

Of course you know my next suggestion if this fails is to get another NIC card right?

Gatewaydev

Hello
I'm also a total newbie at this but I have managed to get my router working with a ordinary netwok card but not with a wireless card yet. I think that you must tell the name of your gateway device. In your /etc/sysconfig/network you could try adding:

GATEWAYDEV="eth0" or whatever name your card have.

when I change my gatewaydev to wireless everything stops working for me until I change it back so maybe this could help you a bit.

Thank you, thank you, /bin/bash! It worked! Now I just have to solve this problem. But even if it doesn't work, I'll just set up a proxy on another computer and use it to surf anyway.
