Default Fail to detect NIC

Hi folks,

CentOS 4.4 x86_64


Occasionally on starting the PC it failed to detect the NIC "eth0" (only the onboard NIC, no additional)

After login

# ifconfig
did not show "eth0"

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/network start
Code:
Bringing up loopback interface   [ok]
Bringing up interface eth0
hanging here.

I have to poweroff the PC several times before eth0 can be detected.

It only happened recently. Pls advise where I have to check. TIA

Maybe your NIC doesn't sit tight in its socket? I'd check for a loose contact.

Hi falko,

Mostly likely it was the problem of DSL modem. It happened twice disconnected from broadband while working. I have to switch off/on the modem and router simultaneously.

I talked to my ISP. They also can't detect the modem and router remotely until I switched off/on them. On my PC during disconnected 'ifconfig' still displayed the IP Address 192.168.0.12. ISP will monitor continuously the modem and router. If it happens again on next Monday, they will change the modem.
