Re: forcedeth problem on M3N78 (MCP78)
I'm not sure if I have the same network problem but I I can't get the onboard networking to work on my M3N78-EMH M/B running Ubuntu 8.04. Setup by the gui for DHCP there seems to be a device eth2:avahi with a network address of 169.254.7.107 whereas it should be in the 192.168 range. If I try another Intel chip NIC it all works as expected with or without disabing the LAN in the BIOS. The onboard network device seems to decide the eth2:avahi is IPV6 (from syslog)? Any ideas as to how to get the onboard networking to work would be appreciated.
