This is not a iputils problem, but it wasn't obvious where to post this.
Linksys LNE100TX is a tier 1 network card, but the latest 4.1 version of
that card doesn't get recognized. It has been posted in various newsgroups
that this has been solved by using a newer version of the tulip driver.
The newer tulip driver is known not to work on other cards,
we have been told.
