Network Card Insanity

Recommended Posts

I've got 10.4.10 installed on my HP Pavillion A6028x which is made up of an nForce 4 motherboard, Athlon64 X2 4600 CPU, nVidia GeForce 6150SE video, Realtek HD Audio, Realtek RTL8201N network.


All in all, everything works great except the wired LAN. I think I've read every article on every forum and followed all the instructions. I very quickly gave up on trying to get the RTL8201 to work, so I tried all the following PCI NICs that I have around:


Realtek 8139D

3Com 3C905TX-A Fast Etherlink XL

Linksys EtherFast LNE100TX 4.1

Kingston KNE111TX


None of them work. From what I've read, the Realtek, 3Com and Linksys should all work for me, but they don't.


I also boot the computer in XP and Vista, and all the cards work, so there are no hardware problems here.


Anybody have any ideas?
