Hi all,
        I have a ne2000 clone on a PCI bus (ok, I know, I know, but I have
it and I would want to make it run.) It is a Realtek 8029 so it might
works, but it don't. I compiled the kernel (2.0.29) with support for NE200
ISA card (but in the comment of ne.c it is written it works with PCI
clones as well.) If I try to modprobe ne.o io=0x9100 (I read 0x9100 from
/proc/pci) it prints me something like:

ne.c: NE*000 found at io address 0x9100:

then it hang up the pc. I've tried everything I know. I've tried even with
kernel 2.1.29 but it works almost the same. Does anybody could help me?

Thanks in advance,

There's a web site with the patches for this card ( at $27
we all have one) - it's in Australia. Try your netsearch

I use a lot Realtek cards (ISA bus 8019) and these card are NE2K
compatibles only if you set it to the jumperless mode. You can find the
software setup program at:

Good luck!

1. Looking for info on these PCI ne2k clones

Hi all!

  Sitting in front of me on my desk are two boxes with cheapo ne2k
`compatible' cards. And because I know various makes/models of these
beasts may or may not work properly with Linux, I'd like to hear if
by any chance anyone might have some experience (good or bad) with
either of these.

  Number one is from a company calling itself `4-lan', and has a
Winbond chipset (well, apparently it's just a single chip) marked
`W89C940F' and `746AE273906102'. The card itself seems to be lacking
any specific model name, on the box it simply says `High Performance
Lan Adapter...' I see.

  The other one is called PCI-NET/32, from Lantech, with a RMC(?) chip
marked `RTL8029AS', `7B132T1', and `747C TAIWAN'.

  I'll be able to return one or both of these, depending upon which one
works, but I'd like to save myself the hassle of trying out both, so
I'd be very grateful if anyone has any recommendations which to take
and which to stay away from (apart from a general `stay away from PCI
ne2k compatibles, period'...). TIA!

Cheers, Tilman
