    Problem on running a Realtek 8139

    Hi Group,

    I didnīt find a topic on my specific problem in this NG, so I hope you can help me. Iīm running a new version of Knoppix and itīs working just fine. Only network doesnīt work. As i have a Bintec X1200 working as DSL-Router and offering DHCP-Service (which works fine!), Iīm not able to set up my NIC neither via DHCP nor manually. If configured manually, Iīm able to ping myself, but no other device in the local network.

    I use 192.168.0.* as IP and a 255.255.255.0 Mask.

    Any Tips & hints??

    Thanks in advance
    Stephan

    Hi Stephen,

    thanks a lot for your hint!!

    Booting Knoppix with the "noapic" suffix was the key.
    The NIC was set up via DHCP and works just fine!!!

    Thanks and have a good day!!!

    Stephan
