Centos 6.5 Network Card Issue

Hi Guys,

I had to move a PCI nic card on my machine to accommodate a video card. Unfortunately the nic no longer works...

When i run ifconfig I get the error:

Bringing up interface eth1:  Error: No suitable device found: no device found for connection 'System eth1'.
                                                           [FAILED]

Please see attached ifcfg-eth1 and the 70-persistent-net.rules files. I've also tried renaming the 70-... file but that made no difference.
ifcfg-eth1
70-persistent-net-rules

When moving the PCI card this would have changed the PCI device ID where the NIC is located. I had an issue where the MAC had changed on a CentOS box that I was using in VMware. Here is a guide I used to fix my problem:

Not the exact situation but may help.

Do you see the card in lspci and ifconfig -a?

Will give the suggestion a try and report back...

ifconfig -a only lists eth0, the loopback , and two other virtual nics.

Yes the card shows in lspci... I tried the suggestion @misbraves but that did not solve the problem even after I re-added the nic card to the rules file in /etc/udev.... here is some more trouble shooting info:

I am starting to wonder if the nic card is faulty...

I see only two network adapters in your output which indicates the card is not connected to mainboard.
Please post output of lspci -nv

I need only devices sections where device class is 02 e.g.
05:00.0 [b]02[/b]80: 14e4:4311 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: ....................
.....................modules: ssb

Actually you need them to be three...

Hi Gheist,

The card was faulty  / driver issue... reseated no change... dropped in a 3com and presto!

Thanks a mil... From looking at the output now I realise that it was the virtual nic that was being displayed and not the second one.

gheistCommented:
realtek is much faster than 3com and costs about nothing. 3com has defective checksum offload that is slower than 10Mbps...

bimrockAuthor Commented:
Wow... will definitely bear that in mind in the future... is there a link to that info?

...On another note even though the nic is working there is no ifcfg-eth* file in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ folder... and it is labelled as auto configured. is this the new normal in centos 6x and should I need to make it static would I just need to make the file?

Thanks.

It was modern like 15 years ago... It is wiped from documentation for quite some time.
