Description of problem:
i installed a redhat enterprise 3 on a pc where there was a 2.1.
with the 2.1 the network was ok, but with the 3, after the
installation, network doesn't work.
with lsmod and dmesg commands i can see that the modules are loaded,
and with the ifconfig i can see the correct ip (static) address; with
the service network restart/start i can see no errors, but the
network doesn't work.
in the /var/log/messages file i can see i string like the following
when i type "ping 172.16.0.50":
... kernel: eth0: Transmit error, Tx status register 90.
what can i do?
thank you in advance,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1. ping <serverIpAddress>
Actual Results: i can't use network
Expected Results: the network should have worked!
is anybody there???
may i have an answer to my questions?
May I know you NIC? It seems to me more like a problem with driver or
missconfiguration. It might happen that you have a duplex mismatch
while the link works in autonegotation (try to run ethtool or
mii-tool). Also try to contact the support, they were solving some
issues with kudzu setting wrong parameters for interfaces.
mi NIC (if you mean the rhn one) is comuneRE.
can you solve my problem with this form or do i have to contact the
thank you in advance.
sorry for the haste, but it's a little bit urgent.
By NIC I meant Network Interface Card. As I said, it hardware related
problem - without some info about it I can't do anything. Anyway
contacting support with your Red Hat Network ID is good idea because
they're helping constumers with configuration issues.
my NIC is 3c905 100BaseTX [Boomerang].
the mii-tool command says:
No MII transceiver presenti!.
with which options shall i run the ethtool command?
Seems to me like an issue
grr, skip my previous comment please
Seems to me like known issue with kudzu and 3c90x NICs.
