    Default Networking Problems (Realtek RTL8139)

    Hi guys,

    I have problems, when I want to connect with my Laptop to router via LAN on BT4. I have a Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ networkcard in my laptop. When I try to do "dhclient" it don't get a response. When I start BT4 on my PC all works fine, but on Laptop don't. I tried it with my USB-BT4 and with Livecd BT4, but in both cases it didn't work.
    I think I need the drivers for my networkcard, but on internet I don't find them (because Realtek-site says, that linux has already integrated the driver) and I don't know how to install the driver, without internet connection (can I install it with my PC on USB-BT4 ???)
    I worked on this problemen since 1-2 months and tried out really many things, but it still don't work. Here is an output from an network-problems-script, maybe it will help:

    Code:

    Did you try actually starting the networking services?
    /etc/init.d/networking start.
    There is a tutorial "stickied" at the top on networking.

    yes, I tried to start network, I also did all things from the sticky tutorial. I tried to set a static and a dynamic IP Address, I put the nameserver into the right file and tried all sorts of starting networking, but it still don't work. Can I find out, if I have the correct driver installed?? I really don't understand, why this is not working (I also asked in a ubuntu forum, but there they also have no idea). Can the problem come from the blacklist file?
