(NET VIA-RHINE) Newer D-Link DFE-530TX fail
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:04:21 EDT
The via-rhine driver for the D-Link DFE-530TX NIC has problems with the
newer cards. If the PCI IDs are 0x1106/0x3065 then this is a newer item.
Under the RH7 2.2 kernel the module simply fails to load. Under the RH7 2.4
preview kernel the module loads, but the card lets out a stream of timouts
and fails to actually emmit any traffic (viz tcpdump and activity lights).
I have tested the platform under another OS and it works fine.
The module code hasn't changed between the 2.4 preview kernel in rh7 and
the 2.4.0-test11 kernel.
This revised unit seems to be a shelf item in the stores over here in the

Should be supported in latest errata.
