with a sudo dpkg -i command for some .deb file that i downloaded, burned to disc, and installed.


damn...didn't read your message fast enough.

found an RTL driver for the 8168 LAN port that I had an installed it. still not working...

but it is matching now.
Code:
Ethernet controller:  Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd RTL81111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06)

.

.
Kernel driver in use:  r8168

Got the proper kernel driver from this site:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsview.aspx?langid=1&pnid=13&pfid=5&level=5&conn=4&downtypeid=3&getdown=false

followed the instructions here:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=101836

also blacklisted the r8169 driver to prevent its loading in the future.

all of this and still no luck connecting or even being able to ping the router. i get the exact same errors as before from both static IP and DHCP...i'm not sure what else there is to do at this point.

You really don't want to be using random drivers as you may find their incompatible with your kernel version.

The best thing you can do is do an
Code:
apt-cache search realtek
(hopefully you wont need an internet connection to do a package search) and search that to see if there's any drivers. Then make a note of the driver name and version number and see if you can pull that from one of Debian's repos.

I'll have a look to see if I can help out with doing that for you later, but I have to go cook then do some stuff for work so i might not get time tonight

thank you for all your help. here is the output for that command:
Code:
flashrom - Identify, read, write, erase, and verify BISO/ROM/flash chips
nictools-pci - Diagnostic tools for many PCI ethernet cards
firmware-realtek - Binary firmware for Realtek wired and wireless network adapters

i'll continue to google these things and hopefully come up with something...

Some hardware is notoriously Linux unfriendly, and it might just be easier to get a PCI card with known compatibility.

I'm about to go that route. I was going to pick up this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704060

but then i read that it uses the same Realtek hardware (which is funny because my previous server motherboard also used this stupid ethernet adapter.

So then i was thinking about getting this one:

You can't go wrong with the Intel or 3com Ethernet adapters. Realteks are the low-end (and CPU dependent)

Thanks for the tip, i'll likely go this route then. any suggestions on how to get it installed? just plug the thing into a PCI slot?

also will there be any compatitibilty issues with the AMD cpu/mobo and the intel card?

Intel LAN cards work seamlessly with AMD CPUs (kinda like putting an AMD GPU into an i7 rig). It's all standard compliant PCI stuff.

Find one that has reviews stating Linux compatibility and go from there.

I've never had an issue with realtek hardware before. Plus I'm not convinced buying another card will fix anything because if the issue is that debian minimal hasn't installed other drivers, he'll end up with the same problem with another PCI card. So I think it's better to try and this his current card first.
