My next step was to install the drivers from the Realtek site. After that FC6 recognized the controllers and I was able to configure them and "bring them up". By bring up I mean that FC6 thinks they are up and the green LED lights on one, an orange LED on the other. However I can't ping anything with either one. Currently I'm using a Dlink PCI ethernet card in the machine.
Sorry for delayed answer...
I got mine working just fine after all.
I had to install the following (dependencies not included):
Then I unpacked the Realtek driver package and I installed the driver with following commands
cd (the folder where I unpacked the Realtek driver package)
make clean modules
After this I had this problem:
The other instead is working only half-time meaning that it is much much slower than the other. I tested this by pinging the same address with both of the cards and other was working fine and the other was very slow (60ms against 1700ms)
But I just ignored it. I plugged the box into my network and everything worked out just fine. I dunno what the real
issue was/is with it, but it works as it should.
Sorry m8, but not so much help from here I guess. Hope you get yours working.
