I cannot seem to get my network up..
It loads the module correctly (3c59x) i think.. lsmod lists it but says used by: 0
I am behind a linksys router so I enabled dhcp. when I run
eth0: command 0x5800 did not complete! status=0xffff
eth0: command 0x3002 did not complete! status=0xffff
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
CAn anyone help?????
oh and Im using the 2.6.3 kernel from the 0.6 install cd
Not sure, need more info. I'd guess that there's no route to the network or the interface is not setup. Check if eth0 is up and that it has an IP address with 'ifconfig' and if it is check your routes with 'route'.
If there's no address then you're not getting an address from the dhcp server on your router. Check that "eth0="dhcp"' in rc.conf. Check that dhcpcd is installed. If so try running 'dhcpcd eth0' to see what happens.
A little internet searching leads to a bug in the 2.6 kernel which makes the 3c59x module not work properly.. I compiled the kernel with 3c59x and now it works .. So hopefully this will help someone else if htey have a similar problem.
Sorry, I was wrong.. It is not a problem with the module but a problem with the kernel's power management of the NIC. The network card does not respond when I do a warm reboot (i.e. type "reboot"). but if I power down and resart it works fine. I have been researching and it seems like I need to recompile with no acpi support. I don't feel like recompiling just now, but I'll post my results if that fixes it.
In case anyone has a similar problem. Recompiling kernel with no ACPI support fixed this problem.
Did you try booting your kernel and pass in the acpi=off option? That probably would have worked instead of recompiling the kernel without ACPI support.
