Woot? The Realtek 8139 is one of the most widely used (cheap) chips. It kind
of sucks, but it does work, the driver has workarounds for the card's quirks.

The driver is called 8139too and is included with SUSE.

Using YaST to set it up should work.

Perhaps there's a hardware problem.

Do you see the card in YaST, Hardware Information?
