View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual boot network card problem: VIA Rhine II

June 27th, 2008, 03:26 PM
I have tried to go to the tutorial suggested (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=132207) but the link won't work. I have the following problem:

1. Windows boot after cache dumping through power button: Network works!

2. Shut down

3. Turn on, boot Windows again: NIC OK

4. Shut down

5. Turn on, boot Ubuntu 8.04: No network

6. Shut down

7. Cache dumping through power button

8. Turn on, boot Ubuntu: Network works!

9. After ending Ubuntu session, shut down

10. Turn on, boot Windows: No network


It seems every time I switch OS, the NIC does not kick in. I have to do this trick every time I switch, but if I shut down and reboot on the same OS, it is usually no problem.

Would anyone shine some light upon this?
