    long story short we were in a brown out i lost my modem router and on board network card..

    i have installed a new nic and i am having some issues getting the new card to work..

    i am running ubuntu 10.4 server and the new nic card is a dlink dfe-530tx+
    this is what i have done so far
    when i look at
    it is empty

    so i removed it anyway
    rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    i reboot and still no connection how to i configure the new nic to be eth0
    this is the rest of what i know to look up but i dont know what i need to do to fix the issue
    ip addr
    1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN
    link/lookback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    2: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN qlen 1000
    link/ether fc:75:15:e3:4c;c2: brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    # The loopback network interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    # the primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static

    Try ifup eth0 and then check it with ifconfig.
    If that does not work you will need to verify your chipset and load the firmware for it
