network config problem


Hi, I am a newbie Linux user running Slackware 8.1 and I am having trouble configuring my network. I had some problem before trying to get my kernel to recognize my NE2000 NIC but after some research I was finally able to get it up. However, when I configured my network, it doesnt seem to work. I did all of the configuring usig ifconfig, routing my gateway (Lynksys router) and adding the DNS servers to my /etc/resolv.conf but when I do a netstat -rn, it hangs my computer up. I cant seem to get the network up and running. Please help!!

are you sure your card is a NE2000 or NE2000 compatible?

find the vendor of your card.

you may be able to get the FCC ID off of it and search it on:

http://www.driverzone.com/fcc_id_search.htm

it should be able to at least tell you who made it.

Seems like its a generic card from a D Link Corporation.
If this is An NE2000 card, what do you think would be the problem?

see if the largest chip on the card has a chipset # on it and search it on the DLink Website. I believe they have linux drivers there

NE2000 is an old 10 mbps isa card that works for just about every isa/pci card that emulates ne2000

But it does help to have the actual hardware instructions from the correct driver set. Plus some chipsets don't agree 100% (not even 30% in most cases) with ne2000. Kingston learned from that mistake eventually.
