RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)" and i installed an extra network card with the same chipset... I've been trying to set up the second card with no luck.. I have tried this to see if it might be the driver Code: sudo modprobe 8139too And tried adding pci=nopci as a booting option(not sure if this is right) Code: kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.28-11-server root=/dev/mapper/Pebkac-root ro quiet splash pci=noacpi When i edit the network interfaces file and reload the network with Code: sudo /etc/init.d/networking force-reload I get the following Code: bob@Pebkac:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking force-reload  * Reconfiguring network interfaces...                                          Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.1 Copyright 2004-2008 Internet Systems Consortium.
