    1.- Install with a realtek 8139 or some other ethernet card suported.
    2.- Download drivers from realtek website.
    3.- Correct /lib/modules/2.6.18-8.el5/build link to point to /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.1.3.el5-i686/
    4.- Unpack driver and follow readme instructions.
    5.- Download webmin rpm (optional)
    6.- Install using rpm -Uvh (optional)
    7.- shutdown and remove ethernet card.
    8.- Boot. New card should be working.
    9.- Configure new card. I use webmin. In my case remove eth0(not present), eth1 (new card) and reconfigure eth0 to be assigned to the new card. I use to do that webmin.

    This procedure works for trixbox too and should work for old elastix versions.

    Good luck :)<br><br>Post edited by: vicsanca, at: 2008/04/02 14:09
