Help needed: Peg2 onboard network died

Hi there,

unfortunately the onboard network of my Peg2 died (I already checked cabling and router). Symptom: Both network LEDs (green and orange) are constantly shining (usually one is flickering for indicating the traffic) but no connection possible at all (cannot even ping the router=

Is there any chance I can repair this? If not, which network card do I have to buy and install which runs fine with AOS4.x?

Any help regarding my Peg2 is highly appreciated!

Thank you in advance and

Kind Regards

@Reth

Visually inspect the plug to see any of the pins are bent.
Try a different ethernet cable, can be bad connection.

@Reth

There are drivers for the RealTek 8029/8139/8169 chipsets. Futher information can be found in the Documentation drawer on Workbench. For example in rtl8139_dev drawer.

Is there any sign the chip is picked up in software? Such as can Roadshow detect it and the driver?

Or does a tool like Ranger show any Ethernet devices on the PCI bus?

Thank you!

After some try outs and so on I manged to get it up and running again. ATM everything is working again.
Had to reformat the partition and installed an old backup. Beginning with this everything was working as normal again, including network. I also got back up to date using AmiUpdate.

But I suffered (and still suffer) from really weird behaviour - beginning with an unreadable partition (General Device Failure ... Disk in unreadable format - hence the formatting and backup restore) ending now in system making "power off" sounds from time to time while Power LED is still on and also other stuff is running. This is still happening from time to time and everything seems to start over afterwards again (so I am getting the same sound as if I select Shutdown from WB or pressing power button long enough, afterwards everything is running up again according to fan and device noices like after a power on).

@Cav

Yeah, that was also my finding - I forgot to mention this in my previous post.

Unfortunately PSUs are hard to "check" - even more if they provide such strange and random errors ...
Will most probably change it for another PSU.
