I just received a new Toshiba satellite pro 200a laptop with a Realtek 8139/810 NIC.
I am using the bootcd.iso from IR1 HP2.

I use hwinfo the I get the device and vender ID, the add the line <newid=10EC 0x8136,r8169"> at the start menu of the boot cd.
But it still does not work. I don't even get a link light (As soon as a DHCP request is issued the link light goes out)

I have noticed that the NIC shows 2 driver INFO statements when I do HWINFO

Driver Info #0
Driver Status: r8169 is active
Driver Activation CMD: "modprobe r8169"
Driver Info #1
Driver Status: r1000 is not active"
Driver Activation CMD: "modprobe r1000"

Does anyone have any idea what going on here??
