Re: Network access gone after recompile

I’m pretty new at this Linux stuff so go easy on me!
I installed the latest Debian distro using the network install, so
obviously my internet access was working fine. Then I compiled the 2.6.6
Kernel and installed that and now I have no internet access.
I searched the kernel config for a driver for my card (a Realtek 3189)
which I know is supported, but could not find it. I have checked
/etc/network/interfaces and it seems right to me, but when I run
etherconf, it says there is no card detected. Now, it seems I can
compile a driver for this card (I think the module is 8139too) but if it
worked before the new Kernel install, why would it not work now, and
does anyone know how I can fix it easily?
and see if that works. If it does, then put "8139too" in a line by
itself in /etc/modules.
