LQ Kernel (or any kernel) + network cards


I just recently complied the LQ Kernel, when i booted up it didnt recognize my network cards, the error said somethign like "it appears they arent there" or dont exist or something. I am new to compiling kernels and configuring them. i did the makexconfig and included network support. Is there something else i should know? If it matters, the cards are linksys lne100tx cards one is like v4.1 the other v5.0 but in linux i think it used the same driver for both in my working kernels. Other than that small (but hudge) problem, everyting else seems to work (well i havent tried anything else but it booted ok).

ok, i just checked....iptables doesnt work either....lol, this is hillarious for some reason....i kinda expected things to go wrong....its cool though because i have a few different kernels i can use but i'd like to have atleast one successful kernel install done by me and not the rhn upgrade service and rpms.

Oops... I responded sort of in the other forum in Success but yeah, if your using Linksys cards, be sure when your compiling the kernel to include support for the DEC chipset which uses the tulip driver which should be under the 10/100 list in network support.. etc, and then that should work for ya..
Can't remember where the other options are for ya off top of my head.. I usually just always browse thru them all, so I don't leave out anything important usually.

yea that did it, im posting this from my linux box...

#uname -r

now, what about iptables....the command works but it saying i need insmod or something. I know that insmod means insert module (right?) but what do i need to get the filtering to work?
