Hi,
With fixed IP instead of DHCP ifconfig gives

[root at hackerville ranjit]# /sbin/ifconfig

Is this good or bad? My point is nowhere is the realtek chipset being
named. So should I change this NIC? Sujata said he would change it,
naturally for some expensive thing like 3com which he was recommending.
My nic is not connected to anything.
