I have been trying to find this info from all over the net but nothing tells me what i want to know

Even manuals and online stuff doesnt have this bit of useful info

I want to use a realtek8029(as) nic with redhat linux 7.3

I have found drivers for this NIC but then what?


how do i install the drivers so that i can get my network up and running

I think that card uses the ne module, no drivers are necessary, the kernel contains all that is needed. Try running

modprobe ne

you may have to specify the io if it's an isa card like this:

modprobe ne io=0x240

Replace 0x240 with the proper io, you can just keep jumping the io to find the proper one...

like this

modprobe ne io=0x200
modprobe ne io=0x220
modprobe ne io=0x240
modprobe ne io=0x260
modprobe ne io=0x280

etc... wink.gif
