Hey I recently had a problem like this with my wireless card.<br><br>However make sure that the eth0 device is even there, either by looking at<br>ifconfig<br>or <br>cat /proc/net/dev<br><br>But the issue I had was found to be a problem with the new udev that found device processes to run on startup.
<br>What solved this was removing net.eth0 or net.&lt;device&gt; from the boot/default run level and letting udev finding it and deal with it correctly.<br><br>But this was also with a wireless card, sorry if it doesn&#39;t help.

Hi,<br><br>I just had a system board replaced on my Thinkpad and now the ethernet<br>interface does not exist.&nbsp;&nbsp;The hardware test is fine...<br><br>whin I issue lspci, I get this:<br><br>02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EP Gigabit Ethernet
<br>Controller (Mobile) (rev 03)<br><br>I have the e1000 driver compiled in the kernel.<br><br>my /etc/conf.d/net file is this:<br><br>config_eth0=( &quot;dhcp&quot; )<br>modules=( &quot;ifconfig&quot; )<br>modules=( &quot;wpa_supplicant&quot; )
<br>wpa_supplicant_eth1=&quot;-Dwext&quot;<br>config_ESSID=( &quot;dhcp&quot; )<br>dhcpcd_ESSID=&quot;-t 5&quot;<br><br>and when I issue /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start, I get this:<br><br># /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start<br> * Starting eth0
<br> *&nbsp;&nbsp; Bringing up eth0<br> *&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; dhcp<br> *&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; network interface eth0 does not exist<br> *&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Please verify hardware or kernel module (driver)<br><br>What could be happening?<br>Does this interface support 100mb? or is it gigabit only?
<br><br>Actually, I would love to find a gnome gui that my user can use to<br>manage both the eth0 and wireless eth1 interfaces.&nbsp;&nbsp;I have not found<br>working examples of this anywhere yet. any sugesstions?<br><br>Thanks<br>
