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