Card Eisa Intel Pro 10/100 ( EtherExpress ?)

Post by Govaere Sebastie » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

a school has a good "old" 486 with an EISA bus and an EISA ethernet card
with an intel 82595 chipset on it !
i think it is an EISA Intel Pro 10/100 (EtherExpress ?) EISA ethernet
card but i'm not sure !

they want me to put Linux on it but i can't find the driver for the EISA
ethernet card.  ;-\

can anybody help me ?




1. RedHat 6.0 & Intel EtherExpress Pro+ 10/100+Management PCI Ethernet Card

I have installed Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/100+ Management cards in a
couple of RedHat 6.0 Linux machines.  The cards seem to work great using
the eepro100.o module, while Linux is running.

One problem during the setup work seemed to crop up on three different
machine on different days.  The machine would be left on over night, and
the next day it would be HUNG, no telnet, no console.  The real kicker
is that it seemed to adversely affect every Win95/WinNT/Win98 machine
running that same card on that network segment.  These machines would
get intermittent responses from a ping, while on the same segment a
PC with a differnt NIC would get 100% results from a ping to the same

One thing that I noticed while troubleshooting the problem is the
following line in the logs after the module loads.  It says "Receiver
lock-up bug exists -- enabling work-around".  I am wondering if this
"bug" is cropping back up on these machines when the machine HANGs.  Has
anyone else experienced any difficulty with the Intel EtherExpress Pro
10/100+management cards??

Can anyone explain the "bug" and what the work-around is fixing??  I am
trying to nail down what caused those cards to act funny during the same
