Please don't top post your questions/replies.

You should try E1000E- and/or IGB-driver of the Linux kernel which is
listed in the LFS-book. You can enable it via the command "make
menuconfig" in the kernel source. Then follow these steps in the "Linux
Kernel Configuration":

Device Drivers --> [*] Network device support --> [*] Ethernet (1000
Mbit) --> <*> Intel(R) PRO/1000 PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support

and/or

Device Drivers --> [*] Network device support --> [*] Ethernet (1000
Mbit) --> <*> Intel(R) 82575/82576 PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet support

ATM I can look at the configuration of kernel 2.6.34 only. But I guess
there is no need to download anything.

Best regards
Marco
