Update:

I booted CentOS 6 with NIC=tg3 on the kernel line - still not network connection.

The VendorID:DeviceID is [b]14e4:1692[/b]

I located a module for this vendor/device [b]alias pci:v000014E4d00001692sv*sd*bc*sc*i* tg3[/b]

ifconfig-a shows eth0 present but no IP address.

[root@localhost Desktop]# ifconfig -a

My system info with the "device" option is shown below.

So perhaps I am closer to a solution? Not sure what to do next.

By default CentOS-6 (following upstream) uses NetworkManager and the interface comes up disabled. Have you enabled it in nm-applet and checked the box to start automatically? Alternatively, you might want to turn off NetworkManager and use the traditional "network" service.

Thanks Phil. The Network Manager applet is not present. I have added a second NIC to the PC. When I run Ubuntu 10.04, the regular OS on the machine, I see both NICs in the applet. I am now going to swap hard drives and see if CentOS finds the new D-Link NIC.

nm-applet is not showing. I tried starting it and got

[ken@localhost Desktop]$ nm-applet
An instance of nm-applet is already running.

** (nm-applet:2521): WARNING **: constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager.

The second NIC seems to be present:

[ken@localhost Desktop]$ ifconfig -a

So I killed the nm-applet process and tried to restart it:

[root@localhost ~]# nm-applet

** (nm-applet:2615): WARNING **: get_all_cb: couldn't retrieve system settings properties: (2) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerSystemSettings was not provided by any .service files.

^C** Message: Caught signal 2, shutting down...

No applet made an appearance.

service network restart did nothing.

Changing the hardware and killing things while debugging is really muddying the waters.

Are you logging in to Gnome as a normal user with GDM running? If so, do you see a small icon that looks like two monitors and a keyboard, possibly with a little red box with a white "x", on the top bar on the right side? In KDE it will appear on the bottom panel on the right.

A brief note so as not to confuse things further. I use the same [b]tg3[/b] driver with my [i]RHEL 6.1[/i] system but, as it is a laptop, I leave all networking under the control of [i]NetworkManager[/i].

Phil.

Yes, I am logging in as my regular ID and running GDM. I am familiar with the nm-applet creature from Ubuntu. It works great on my netbook under Ubuntu 10.04. On this desktop (the one I am testing CentOS 6 on) it is present when I run Ubuntu although it sometimes drops out when I try to suspend. The red X appears and will not reconnect without a reboot. Swapping the nVidia card out and replacing it with an ATI Radeon greatly reduced that problem(?)

As to CentOS 5.6 - the applet is present and it auto connects as installed. With CentOS 6 under VMWare it is present but does not auto connect unless I make that selection under Edit Connections. Then it works fine (but the NIC is the VMWare pseudo NIC). Same with Scientific Linux 6 under VMWare.

The only reason I killed the process is because it claimed to be running but was not displayed and I was planning to shut down CentOS 6 and put back the Ubnutu drive. I wanted to see if I could start the applet which it does not appear is possible.

As to the second NIC - if it connected to the network I planned to install the 156 updates which are available and see if something in them fixed the Broadcom.

Alan,

I don't really care what controls the network as long as something does. As I said above the applet works well on my netbook (Ubuntu 10.04) with hard wired and wireless Broadcom cards.

Thanks for the update. Normally when I see the red box with the X it just means that the interface has not yet been activated. Left-clicking on the NM icon and then selecting the desired interface will start it.

If more help is needed then please provide data on the configuration you are working with at the time.
