I have a 3Com 3C920B-EMB Integrated NIC integrated in my Asus A7N8X Deluxe motherboard. How can I get it to work? Arch put some lines in the rc.conf to start eth0 but that failed on startup.
I googled it for quite a while and found references to a 3C59X driver. Is that what I need to use?
Thanks in advance for any help
I have the same board, and it has 2 NICs.
eth0 = nvidia
eth1 = 3COM
so if you get an IP from DHCP try (from the commandline)
dhcpcd eth1 ifconfig
and see if you have an IP, and then edit your rc.conf to do this automatically ...
eth1="dhcp" INTERFACES=(lo !eth0 eth1)
Oh so, it did work natively for you? The rc.conf was trying to enable eth0 before I had the nforce drivers installed so that would probably explain why that didn't work. I will try enabling eth1 now. Thanks
That worked, although my 3Com is eth0. Thanks
