[realtek-bug] Destination Host Unreachable under Linux
Thu, 5 Oct 2000 20:01:21 +0000
I have been unable to connect to a LAN through a card NexNIC-ND012
(which uses chip RTL8139) under Linux RedHat 7.0, while I can connect
under Windows 98 without any problem. The card NexNIC-ND012 is from Unex
company (www.unex-tech.com). The driver installed is rtl8139.o from RedHat
7.0. I have tested it on two machines and had the same problem on the two
machines (i.e. connexion works under Win98 but not under Linux RH7.0).
On each machine, I have two Ethernet cards, one card ND012, and a
second card with RTL8029 chip. The connection under Linux RH7.0 is OK with
the card with RTL8029, i.e. when I plug the cable of the LAN in this
When I plug the cable in the DN012 and try to ping to another PC on the
LAN, I get the message "Destination Host Unreachable". However, the
Network application "RH Network Monitor", that indicates the status of the
connection, seems to indicate that everything is OK, as it displays green
Would anybody know the origin of the problem? Is it because I use two
Ethernet cards on the same machine? Is there a special configuration in
this case? The configuration program Kudzu of RH7.0 detected both cards
smoothly and installed everything. I did not change anything, assuming it
could only make the situation worse.
Thank you very much in advance for any help.
