I've had the same problem also with 3com(3c905) nic. Only with Fedora based distros, the nic will not work.

Any ideas/suggestions if Blag will work?

Thnx.

tofu, sry I missed this first time around...

Did it majickally fix itself, by any chance? Sometimes you have to power-cycle your cable modem to have it assign another address....

If you could give me an actual error or something, that would be cool.

Also try running:
Code:
/sbin/mii-tool eth0

to see if the card is seeing that it is connected to the hub/switch/modem.


Bugzilla may have some info for you:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/sh ... ?id=119965

Some confusion in the bug report about whether it's a 509 or 905 though. ;)

This may help (run as root):

Code:
/sbin/chkconfig --del kudzu


kudzu is the thing that says "Detecting new hardware..." or somesuch. It takes effect after reboot.

To re-enable:

Code:
/sbin/chkconfig --add kudzu
.

Also, it may be that the module isn't loading. Try this (as root):

Code:
/sbin/modprobe 3c509
/sbin/service network restart


You may need to run `redhat-config-network` to set up dhcp if it isn't already.

Lemme know how it goes, and error reports are helpful.

P.S. All of the redhat-config-* programs are renamed system-config-* in FC2/BLAG20000.
