Subject: [gentoo-user] NIC problems after MS Windows update
Date: Sun, 29 Jul 2007 10:02:22
1 Hi All,
3 I've run MS Windows update on a dual boot box which has a Realtek
4 (RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ rev 10) card. I thought that the update just updated
5 the driver on MS Windows, but I fear it may have messed up the firmware. I
6 say this because when I boot in Linux either the 8139too module which is
7 built in the kernel (2.6.20-gentoo-r6) does not seem to work, or/and dhcpcd
8 times out.
10 eth0 is not shown under ifconfig by running /etc/init.d/net.eth0 after dhcpd
11 times out and it only comes up after I run ifconfig eth0 up.
13 Has anyone using this card noticed this? Is the kernel driver too old (is
14 there a later 8139too module)?
