: Does anybody know if I can use a network card with Davicom DM9101F chip
: under Linux? Any related information is appreciated. Thanks.
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.
