Subjectdhcp problem with realtek 8139 clone with rh 7.1
Hi,

I have som problem with my realtek 8139 clone. It won't work with dhcp
against my isp. I've just installed redhat 7.1 on a i386 with to (exactly
the same) network cards, one that should be connected to my isp, and one
to
the local network. My local network works fine, but when I try to start
eth0
(which is the card connecting to my isp) I get

Determining IP configuration... Operation failed.
failed.

If I manually try to run 'pump -i eth0' I also get Operation failed.

If I run 'mii-tool -v eth0' I get

eth0: autonegotiation failed, link ok
product info: vendor 00:00:00, model 0 rev 0
basic mode: autonegotiation enabled
basic status: autonegotiation complete, link ok

I've tried using the rtl8139 as well as the 8139too driver shipped with
linux kernel 2.4.4 which I'm using, and I'm trying to connect via a cable
modem.

My dmesg looks a bit strange too, I get som messages several times.

Is this normal?

Can anybody please help getting the card to work properly?
