problems with VIA and 3com network cards

Recommended Posts

I recently installed 9.1 on my athlon 1.4. Everything seemed fine with the install; however, when it finished booting I came to find that there was no network connectivity. I have an integrated VIA 6103 NIC as well as a 3Com 590 NIC installed. Both interfaces are brought up but they can only ping localhost. I cannot even ping my router. I tried the rhinefet module from www.viaarena.com to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If it's TPO:

 

Geoffry Coram reported in the news that he got his 3com 590 TPO to work. He had to get the alpha driver from http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers. Other drivers would be there as well. Notehttp://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/vortex.html

also, look in /var/log/messages for any apic, irq errors which via's are well known for. Does ifconfig -a show it to be configured with an ip etc.... is eth0 brought up at boot or does that error as well?
