My machine is installed with Linux Redhat 7.2 and i did have the problem of network card undetected, however as to the previous comment from a helpful friend, i was able to get some results from the insmod 8139too and i added "alias etho eth0' in the module.conf. When i browse the network configuration tools, the network card was unable to provide the IRQ and and IO value, and i couldn't save the setting as an error for 'network card not configured properly" was shown when i want to exit from the network configuration tool. Please help.

module.conf should be "alias eth0 8139too"

Then do "ifconfig -a", you should see an interface called "eth0". Then configure.

I did do an "ifconfif -a" and two device was detected: eth0 and eth0:0 was shown. What does this mean? Anyway the after i rebooted, i couldn't find the device eth0 or the eth0:0. How do i configure my Redhat Linux to permenantly accept the configuration. I also did a "modprobe 8139too" after that, but no result was shown. Should the network configuration tools show the IRQ and the IO port value inorder the device to work properly.
