    Unrecognised Realtek NIC


    I'm running Fedora FC6.

    I've bought a Sweex LC101 NIC for my fedora box, but am having some big problems.

    From here I see that my card uses a Realtek RTL8169 chipset, so far so good.

    When I do a /sbin/lspci -vv I get the following:

    03:01.0 Non-VGA unclassified device: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Unknown device 816b (rev 10)
            !!! Invalid class 0000 for header type 02
            Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV+ VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B-
            Status: Cap+ 66MHz+ UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR+
            Latency: 64, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes
            Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 0
            Region 0: I/O ports at <ignored>
            Bus: primary=00, secondary=00, subordinate=02, sec-latency=0
            BridgeCtl: Parity- SERR+ ISA- VGA- MAbort+ >Reset- 16bInt- PostWrite-
    Would anyone be kind enough to suggest a course of action to try to get this working?

    Many thanks.

    You can run system-config-network and add a new Realtek ethernet device.

    Thanks very much for the help - I'm not entirely sure how but after coming back to it from a couple of days away the card seems to be recognised and operational (it doesn't seem to give me any more network performance than my 100Mbit card, but I guess that's a different issue - the switch reports a 1000 connection).
