    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
    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 ISP will monitor continuously the modem and router. If it happens again on next Monday, they will change the modem.
