What module are you using, rtl8139 or 8139too, and have you tried the
opposite one?  I am using RTL8139 based Dlink DFE-530TX+ in both SuSE 7.3
and 8.2 with 8139too (rtl8139 did not seem to work).

Does the IP have a name in /etc/hosts (maybe DNS delay)?

tried both modules, same result.
'lspci' shows my card
'lsmod' doesn't show 8139too or rtl8139
also removed every entry with ethx from modules.conf
and tried ifup 8139too -> hangs
i think there is NO driver in the kernel (2.4.xx) for my card?

i will look. what should i change if so?

thanks

1. '~$ sudo ifup eth0' does not provide Internet access.

Hi,
[LAN using pm-utils and Fritz!BoxFon ADSL router] I'm resuming my Hardy
computer from hibernation. I notice that I forgot to switch on prior the
router.
'~$ sudo ethtool eth0' reports 'Link detected'.
sudo ifdown eth0 reports: "interface eth0 not configured."
'~$ sudo ifup eth0' still does not provide Internet access. Only
'sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager restart' provides Internet
access.
Why?

Regards,
Detlef Lechner

2. Fulltime T1 connection thru cable

3. Newbie: 'ifup eth0' followed by GNOME logout causes gray screen

4. Sorry Only Testing

5. 'ppp-on' Works, 'ifup ppp0' Doesn't

6. Using Exabyte under Solaris 2.3

7. The system hangs when it's about to start 'init'

8. Asus K7V ACPI Power Button not working

9. Boot 'hangs' at starting the eth0 interface ??

10. 'lo' & 'eth0' devices inactive: how come ?

11. Hang-able system: linux's or SuSE's fault?

12. Why does 'ps' hang system ?

13. Checking the 'hlt' instruction hangs system
