Centos setup ethernet connection first time install
Posted on 2006-11-24
First off I'm a beginner when it comes to setting up Linux. I just got a new machine and installed Centos 4.4 on it. Now I'm trying to set up the internet connection. I can't seem to figure out how to set up either a wireless or a wired connection.
For this question I just want to get online so lets just figure out the wired connection cause it's probably easier.
For the wired connection when I try to activate eth0 in System Setting >> network I get "3c501 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization" I have no idea what this means. I'm thinking maybe I chose the wrong device when setting up eth0 (although it was the default option) or maybe I'm missing drivers or something but I have no real idea how to figure that out, any help would be appreciated.
I just did an lspci and here is the results for ethernet
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
if that helps determine my problem
