I'm having trouble installing a Linksys FA311 which is a Realtek 8139C rev 10 chipset as recognized by lspci.

#modprobe --first-time 8139too

...shows that the module is already in the kernel. I tried booting off the Debian net-inst CD, but it didn't seem to see the Realtek NIC.

I'm afraid I'm a little new at installing networking hardware under Linux. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm setting up my first Linux based router and getting stuck pretty badly. Any help is appreciated.

look at the output of the lsmod command. Is the module loading?
Look at the output of the dmesg command. Is the adapter being recognized.
Look at the output of the command ifconfig -a. Is there some ouput for all the adapters?
