I just booted a gentoo live usb that has a 4.9.6-gentoo-r1 kernel. It is x86_64, so 64-bit. lsmod shows the tg3 is loaded, but ifconfig -a only shows localhost. lspci -k shows the ethernet device is a Dell NetLink, which is a Broadcom BCM7780. It uses PCIe. What could be the matter that eth0 (or goofy named new equivalent) ethernet device is not showing up?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
