RE: New Kernel - No Network

I'm still trying to get connected with 2.4.20, while 2.2.22 connects without
problems. My debian system is on a lan. The ifconfig screens look the same,
except that eth0 has no IP address in 2.4.20, which leads me to believe that
the dhcp is not enabled in the new kernel. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot
that one. At the same time, if I do a lsmod on both, I get 4 modules on
2.2.22 and none on 2.4.20.  Are some of the module functions built into the
new kernel? I wouldn't have eth0 up if that function weren't handled by the
kernel, would I? After dmesg, the log on 2.4.20 seems to load Net 4.0
without problems, except at the end when it says... Unix domain sockets
1.0/SMP for Linux... ds: no socket drivers loaded.  Could this be a problem
in enabling connection to the lan?  Please advise.  Thanks.   Vince

For 8139 cards, ne2k-pci will NOT work.  You need the rtl8139, or 8139too
drivers for RTL 8139-based network cards (they are 100mbit/s nics).

ne2kpci will work with the rtl8029 and 8019, I think (they are 10mbit/s
