Unrecognized PCI Ethernet cards
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:28 EDT
Description of Problem:
Unrecognized common PCI 10/100 Ethernet cards (see below).
Steps to Reproduce:
The following Ethernet cards were not recognized by the Roswell installer
(or for that matter the 7.1 installer):
PCI ID Card Description Driver
------ ---------------- ------
11ad:0002 LinkSys LNE100TX Rev A2 (PNIC) Tulip
11ad:c115 LinkSys LNE100TX v2.0 (PNIC+) Tulip
125b:1400 ALFA GFC2204 (ASIX) Tulip
10ec:8139 D-Link 530TX+ RTL8139too
The Tulip driver is included by default, so choosing it from the menu
is all it takes to successfully get around this problem. The D-Link 530TX+
also requires a separate driver disk and a rather nonintuitive guess as to
which driver to use.
The LinkSys and D-Link cards are very common, the ALFA less so.
The first two tulip ids have been in the pcitable since May of last year, and
January of this year respectively. The 8139 id has been there since December of
last year. If it's not getting recognized, something is really wrong with the
installer logic, or the pcitable is getting munged.
125b id added in cvs.
Try to reproduce with a local card (if we have one)... otherwise we may need to
get the card from David Niemi (firstname.lastname@example.org)
abrown, any more info here?
