Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2000-12-14 08:49:02 UTC
There is a new rtl8139 driver (8139too) that has been tested in 2.4 and is
backported to 2.2.
Jeff Garzik is maintaining this driver and it is included in 2.2.18. This driver
solves a lot (but not all)
of the problems this card causes. Several versions of rtl8139 still have trouble
when using a hub (as opposed
to a switch or a direct connection via a cross-cable), but that seems to be a
hardware issue and only results
in 1 or 2 seconds of no-network.

It might very well be possible to use this driver with the stock 2.2.16-22
kernel, I'll look into that tomorrow if
you want.
