This chip is not an ethernet media access controller (MAC); it's just
a transceiver chip that attaches to the main controller.

You have made the mistake of assuming that you know which is the right
chip to ask about. Don't do that. Specify the markings on _all_ the
chips on the board and the vendor and model name/number of the card.
If you don't do that, nobody will ever know exactly what card you have:
there are several boards on the market that use the Davicom PHY chip.

1. Davicom chipset - onboard NIC

Hi,
Has anyone had problems with the Davicom chipset (DM9102F) on an
on-board NIC?
I've tried the NIC plugged into my hub as well as directly to my cable
modem and I get
many RX frame errors in both configurations. The following ifconfig
output is when
plugged into the hub; I get many collisions as well. I've got the latest
(1.30) dmfe driver
from the davicom web site. I'm running Redhat 6.2.

/sbin/ifconfig eth0
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:D0:09:FE:E6:47
          inet addr:192.168.0.3  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

          UP BROADCAST RUNNING  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:1052 errors:230 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:230
          TX packets:1184 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:22 txqueuelen:100
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0xe000
