NIC not configured properly


I'm running LFS 6.2 and trying to setup internet access.
eth0 activates just fine during boot and I can ping my static IP but can't ping an outside host or even my router.

I'm running solely off the command prompt, can't use any other network tools.

I used the kernel config from the LFS live cd so I assume everything I'd need the kernel to include is there since internet works on the live cd.

I'd read an article on the /etc/module.conf and needing to put the driver in there. Not sure.

How do I get the kernel to call up the right nic module/driver?

The other problem is that I'm not sure which nic module I need. I assume I can do a modprobe or a grep to find out what it is under suse and use that. Just not sure of the command.

Thanks for any and all help.

the output from ifconfig under lfs is:
eth0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-10-DC-00-00-7C-CA-4E-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00 <-----the problem
inet addr:192.168.1.73 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

the output under SuSE is:

The gateway isn't the problem. It's the network card. It's not configured/installed properly.

take a look at dmesg and see what comes up about your card, and if its getting set to an interface.

if not, you'll need to include the kernel module, see what one its using on google. and you might have to recompile your kernel with the module enabled.

check out lspci too.

Oy.. Every other os I've installed on this machine has never shown more than one eth device. I did a grep to find all mac addresses. Sure enough there was the mac I recognized. It ended up being eth1 and I just had to move the ifconfig.eth0 to ifconfig.eth1 and it worked.
