network card does not work

hi there

i just installed my arch linux!

well, i get an error loading the network card at boot (i can not read it, its to fast) and if i type ifconfig i dont see any network card. just lo and another one. but no network cards.

in the arch setup the card went after that i had configured the card with the automatic tool in the setup.

i have got a hp nx7000 notebook, and if a type

lspci

it returnes (i just write the ethernet here):

Ethernet Controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co. , LTD. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 20)
Network Controller: Intel Corp. : Unknow device 1034 (rev 04)

Re: network card does not work

Try modprobe r8139

then set up ifconfig & then try pinging a URL...

If you get that working you can then set up rc.conf

Re: network card does not work

modprobe 8139cp

or, (usually for integrated chips)

modprobe 8139too

Re: network card does not work

Edit your /etc/rc.conf.


arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy

eth0="dhcp"
INTERFACES=(lo eth0)
gateway="default gw 192.168.1.1"
ROUTES=(!gateway)

Hi Green!!

You are getting better and better on these ethernet drivers, thanks for fixing my laptop yesterday.

Now I got a "serial" mouse problem on my stationary, check out DE for more information!

Re: network card does not work

You could do a

pacman -S dhcpcd

and then do a

dhcpcd eth0

that's all.
