If this one dosn't work it might be easier to get a generic RT8139 card.

I got a Kingston card in my other computer with a realtek chip (I think the same as yours), and I can't get it to work either. I thought that as soon as I get this one figured out, the other on will come easier.

Ok, have you had any luck with the module from the link I posted?

Okay, I tried to follow the directions in the readme, but I got some problems. The readme basically said:

1. make all
2. insmod sundance.o
3. ifconfig eth0 up <IP> netmask <NETMASK>

...but on insmod I got:

insmod: a module named sundace already exists

I ignored this and ran the ifconfig, but that froze up my computer.

You'll have to remove the old sundance module before you can load the new one with "rmmod sundance", then you should copy the new module to /lib/modules/*your kernel version* etc....and replace the old one. Try doing a "make install" first and if that works do "depmod -a" then try loading the new module with "/sbin/modprobe sundance".

Sorry I didn't give all of the directions:

1. make all
2. insmod sundance.o
3. ifconfig eth0 up <IP> netmask <NETMASK>
4. cp sundance.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net
5. Add the following lines at /etc/modules.conf:
alias eth0 sundance
6. Run "netconfig" or "netconf" to create configuration script ifcfg-eth0
located at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts or create it manually.
[see - Configuration Script Sample]
7. Driver will automatically load and configure at next boot time.

After I ran 'rmmod sundance', the install went smoothly, but when I was finished, I rebooted and everything was the same as it was before.
