This script, Renato, can't differentiate from Realtek and other modules;
so, I cannot understand what happen for you.

Obviously, if you don not save your environment with "setup -s",
nothing will work.

Please, go in /setup/cnf and issue:

                # cat network.cnf

You can see your values?
Do that after you setup with standard procedure.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
