live cd realtek rtl8168
I have a new HP Pavilion with what shows up in Vista as a realtek rtl8168c and works.
Ubuntu 7.10 install disc running live sees it as rtl/8111/8168B and doesn't work.
on a fresh start using DHCP I get IP 169.254.7.10
but apparently no connectivity: no internet, can't ping anything on my network.
Does this make sense to anyone? Why all the different IDs for the card? Why doesn't it work?
Would I have better luck if I ran the install.
Thanks for any help.
