Go through the following list to troubleshoot your internet connection. If you can answer yes, move down to the next one.

1. Is your ethernet card detected?
Run /sbin/ifconfig and see if 'eth0' is showing. If it isn't you probably don't have the correct driver installed.

2. Has it been assigned a name (i.e. eth0 or eth1)?
If not, try to find the correct driver in your drivers list and do modprobe driver name.

3. Do you have an ip address (do: /sbin/ifconfig at the prompt)?
If not, and you want to have a dynamic address, do:
dhclient eth0
-OR-
dhcpcd eth0

If neither of these work, you need to install a dhcp client. If you have them installed and for some reason get an error when you try to run these commands, you may have a misconfigured DHCP server.

If you want a static IP address, do:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up 192.168.0.2 [<-sub your desired IP address here]

4. Can you ping your gateway?
If you have an IP address and you can't ping your gateway you may have problems with the following:

Your IP address is incompatible with your gateway's local subnet. For example, your gateway may be: 192.168.0.1 and you may have set up your computer's IP address to be 192.168.1.2. You would need to change your computer's IP address to be 192.168.0.2. HINT: If you are using dynamic ip addressing, this is almost certainly not your problem!

-OR-

Your ethernet card or cable could just simply not be working. If possible, replace them.

5. Is there anything in /etc/resolv.conf? If not, you will need a DNS server listed... usually your gateway/router's local network address will suffice.

Again, if you're using dynamic ip addressing, this should not be a problem. If, however, you are using static IP addressing, add the following in your resolv.conf file (if empty or correct it):

domain domainName.tld
nameserver 192.168.0.0 [<- dns server #1 you can use your router's ip address if needed]
nameserver 192.168.0.1 [<- dns server #2 if you have one.]

6. Still not working? Run the following:

route add default gateway eth0

7. Is your gateway/router connected to the internet?

From your gateway/router, ping internet addresses like: www.google.com or www.yahoo.com

8. Does your gateway/router have an internet address? You can check it on the STATUS tab if you're using a Linksys router or if you're using another Linux machine as a router, you can do /sbin/ifconfig like in step 3


9. Can you ping the gateway/router's internet address from your computer?

If your gateway/router does have an internet address, then ping that internet address from your computer. If this doesn't work, repeat step #6, if this still doesn't do it, you most likely have ISP problems.

10. From your computer or your gateway/router can you ping the internet DNS servers listed?

If you cannot ping the internet DNS servers from either your router/gateway or your computer, your ISP is almost certainly having some DNS issues.

Hopefully this helps. If anyone has some suggestions or corrections, please post them.

The P4P800-E used the Marvel Yukon for Gigabit ethernet - maybe the P4C800-E does likewise.
Used to be I had to load the sk98lin driver for it - as of (around about) 2.6.10 it became a kernel option, so the driver load was no longer required. Although for a while it wouldn't run above 100Meg - but that's a different story for a different thread ...
Don't know about Suse - I tried 9.3 but it wouldn't install a boot loader so I gave up in disgust. Couldn't get to the ASUS site just now (showed too busy), so can't offer any better.

Did you read my step 4? Sounds like you may have cable or nic issues (hardware-related).

If you have extra cables or even an extra nic, i would recommend trying these out. An outside problem could possibly be you might not have the exact driver (module) loaded.

Ahh sorry... I wasn't reading exactly... almost certainly a driver issue. If this works in XP, then of course there's no hw issue. Very sorry for that. I see you show the motherboard chipset, but do you know exactly which type of ethernet card you have (vendor & model)?

Your NIC is up and active, you don't need a driver you just need to configure eth0 properly

I assume as XP works it's getting settings via DHCP from your router

Surely Yast has a DHCP option for eth0 ?

Sorry but at the moment I'm on Gentoo so I can't check

Pete i have tried DHCP and static IP address.

and its still a no go, i even tried a linksys ethernet card(from my other pc) and suse picks it up
i dont feel like buying another ethernet card as the built in works fine with XP.

im convinced its the driver..

but like i said i dont know how to install the driver given the error i get..
makefile 111****linux kernel source not configured - missing config.h stop

someone give me some suggestions on how to install this driver given this error.

thanks all.

I had similar problems with a Shuttle box, using Yukon chipset. RH8 did not see the network card, although WinXP did.

I did the following for Red Hat 8:
a. Click on RedHat button / System Settings / Packages
b. Select Development / Kernel Development
c. Click Update (any "Next ????)
d. Insert RedHat Disk 2 when requested then OK.
e. When "Update completed" is displayed, OK then quit from Package Management.
f. Installed the drivers downloaded from Marvell (www.marvell.com) or Syskonnect site (www.skd.de), according to the instructions in the driver package

I also have your kind of MOBO, I was having difficulties on bringing up eth0.

have you tried SK98lin?
It works out fine on my P4C800.
