SMP on Jetway NC92-N330-LF... 8169-No Network

I don't know if anyone else is going to run into this but figured I would post it anyway. I installed the SMP rtai package from and all the sudden my network wouldn't connect. It appears to be a known problem and adding "nopat" to the kernel options seems to fix it..

Just in case someone else runs into it.

I guess you are having the same issue I had with Intel Atom 330 motherboard:
Network works one time, next time you reboot - no network

Also if I unplug AC power and wait 1 minute - all comes back until next reboot

Here is a problem:
Linux uses R8169 driver and your chip is actually R8168
To verify it use:
lspci -v

if it is listed as RTL8111/8168B then I have fix that worked for me

Without going into details, simply download script from the link on this page and run it

It fixed all my problems

I heard it may be similar problem with sound, but I don't use sound on my PC and can't confirm

Edit: It looks like your board has same 8111/8168 chip, so this script will work for you
