alpha ThunderLAN (NetFlex3) driver available for testing

Post by James Ban » Wed, 02 Jul 1997 04:00:00

A driver for TI TLAN100 (aka ThunderLAN) is ready for testing.
The driver supports Compaq Netelligent 10 and Netelligent
10/100 cards.  Some cards called NetFlex 3 PCI cards may also
be supported as they may actually be Netelligent 10/100 cards(?).

1)  Download it.
2)  Un-tar it (it is currently a stand-alone module).
3)  Compile it.  I've tested it on 2.0.25, 2.0.29 and briefly
    on 2.1.43.  You will need a kernel with modules support
    enabled and the corresponding version of modversions.h
4)  insmod it.  If it recognized your card, it will print out 20
    or so lines of debugging flotsom.
5)  Set the IP address and the routes appropriately and you'll be
    in business.

This is alpha code as it hasn't been widely tested, so take
appropriate precautions, especially if you are not using one
of the kernel versions listed above.
