Nic Card has not working

By gary ·
Here is my dilemma I have a network card that does not work any more, I have checked all the settings everything seems to be in place all the right settings in all the right files and scripts, no major error messages except. When I do an ifconfig I get no response it just goes back to the prompt when I do a netstat -rn the resulting table is empty but i cannot understand why? Linuxconf is fine and Netcfg.
So I put a second card in 3com 3c905c and still the same seems to recognise it yet nothing else. My modules.conf file has the aliases defined.
Sorry I am running Redhat 7.0 on a Compaq Deskpro EN SFF embedded nic is an eepro100 if this helps.
I have searched the forum but to no avail.

I did not see where you checked the IRQ. I have found that some cards will take the IRQ that the USB takes. You will have enter the BIOS settings to see what the settings are for NIC. Also; verify your IRQ setting located in the /proc/interupts filethese should match.

Lets assume your onbooard NIC has became deffective. It is not unusual, so you would really need the second interface.

First of all, check that you have disabled the onboard NIC at the BIOS. Also check that there are no IRQ conflict. RH 7.0 uses kernel 2.2.16 (or 2.2.19 or 2.2.22, if you are up-to-date with the security releases). The 2.2 series does not work well with IRQ sharing; if you are out of free IRQ lines, I sugest you upgrade to 2.4.5 or newer.

Check that the module (3c59x) are loaded. Also, try manual loading the module. This usually shows any problems the driver may find.
