I am looking to set up a linux box with 3 ethernet ports. Are there
any cards that work particualry good in this environment? Any that
should be avoided?
Adaptec has a board with 4 ports on one card but its awefully
100Mbit speed is not immediatly needed but I see no reason not to
spend a few extra bucks on the future. For the same reasons I would
prefer PCI cards.
The motherboard has 4 PCI slots with a video card in one. There are
no other expansion cards(ISA or PCI) in the machine. The IDE and
floppy controllers are the usual motherboard based ports. Will I have
problems with IRQs/PnP/DMA channels?
It would seem wise to go with 3 identical cards though I may need to
configure them to operate at different ethernet speeds at some point.
Are there drivers that work better with multiple cards?
