[all variants] ASRock P5B Pro (ICH8 and Realtek RTL8111DL) Network Problems

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there, my old mainboard crashed so I bought and installed a new one, as it says in the title, a P5B Pro, and I couldn't be unhappier. Sadly return is not an option so I'm gonna have to find some workarounds. The main problem is that the onboard gigabit Lan interface does not work at all. It doesn't even show up on anything like Dmesg or lspci or the likes. I tried installing the official realtek drivers anyway and the compiled an loaded well, but it is still not recognized by the pc. Lan is enabled in the bios btw. I would be really gratefull if any of you knew a solution for this problem as it would make my server work again. (also I have the problem that the ide chipset is not yet supported, but I plugged the HD in via a IDE/Usb connector and it works like a charm so this is not really a priority) (Hardware)
