Default Onboard LAN is not recognized

Running Linux - Fedora Core 1.
ECS mobo N2U400-A uses nForce2 chipset.
LAN device is VT6103L. OS does not recognize it.
Ethernet capable is connected and router light indicates a link is made.

Is this a hardware problem or software? Is there a fix from nVidia?

Arrow Re: Onboard LAN is not recognized

Do you get any error messaage? I have an nForce2 under Redhat9 EE giving me a NIC problem with "nvnet device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization." I've googled for a fix that deals with something called a forcedeth driver, but I haven't had time to track this down.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.

Unhappy Re: Onboard LAN is not recognized

That's the same error I see. I've seen posts on other forums that leads me to the conclusion that this is a problem with the nForce2/3 chipset. I have also seen reference to forcedeth.

For now I'm taking the easy way out and dropping an ethernet card in (which is what I did). I disabled the onboard lan in the Bios. I'll fight the battle another day!
