Hi all
I have a Ubuntu 8.04 server and am wanting to upgrade my network to 1Gb. The PCI network card I purchased was advertised as being compatible with linux. It has the RTL 8169 chipset but after inserting the card into the machine.
It fails to work so far I have done the following:-
typed dsmesg|grep eth
typed lsmod|grep r819

Please see screenshot for results - I really am stumped here if anyone can help I would be very grateful..Wish I could offer a 1000 points here !!!
