FC4, Acer Aspire, SiS900, and Network Troubles



I just got my new Acer Aspire3005WLCi. It has an internal SiS900 Ethernet NIC, but I can't get it to work at all. No ARP, no ping, nothing. But the lights work.

I reloaded Windows (as much as it pained me) and the NIC worked fine. I am using the same cable/cable path as the Windows test. It's going to a D-Link DSS-5+ 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch.

lsmod shows the sis900 module loaded.

modprobe.conf shows:
alias eth0 sis900

dmesg shows:
sis900.c: v1.08.08 Jan 22 2005
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0x1800, IRQ 3, (MAC in Hex)

messages shows:
kernel: sis900.c: v1.08.08 Jan 22 2005
kernel: 0000:00:04.0: Realtek RTL8201 PHY transceiver found at address 13
kernel: eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast EThernet at 0x1800, IRQ 3, (MAC in Hex)
kernel: eth0 Media Link On 100mbps full-duplex
kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
kernel: eth0: Transmit timeout, status 00000004 00000241
(last 2 messages repeated)

lspci shows:
00:04.0 Ethernet controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet (rev91)

I ping a machine and I only see my side sending out an arp request with no response. Obviously nothing shows in the arp table.
