I've recently tried many different distros of Linux. Having tried and liked a live version of Ubuntu 6.06, and as everything worked well, (sound, broadband internet etc.) I decided to install it.

Following the (smooth) installation I'm now unable to get online. I'm using a Davicom 9102/A PCI ethernet adapter and an Origo adsl router. My isp (Metronet) tells me my router is working fine and Ubuntu tells me the network card is up and running too. The two don't seem to talk to each other as they did with the 'live' version. All works well when I boot to Windows xp and the live version of Ubuntu still gets me online too!

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have two ethernet adapters? I see both the tulip and dmfe modules loading. From googling I saw both modules mentioned but I believe that the dmfe is the correct one.

The driver appears to be correct since eth0 exists but an IP address is not being assigned. Have you tried configuring the network?

I only have one ethernet adapter - the Davicom - it shows up as 'tulip compatible'. I've tried configuring the network using DHCP - which gives an instant 'server not found' from Firefox and various manual settings, when Firefox takes 15-30 secs before timing out. Both the DHCP and manual settings work for the live version. (As an aside, the similar problems happen with Suse and Knoppix live cds - here the connection shows as active and working but I get nothing from any browsers etc.) How do I sort out which module to use?
