I have a Compex RL2000 PCI Ethernet Card.
Has anybody any experience with it?
Can it be used on Linux RedHat 4.2, or should I buy another Ethernet
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

...should work. The Compex Cards are ne2000 (pci) compliants. So you
can use them with the ne2000 driver. Just use the irq and adress the
You can get the irq by manually setting it in the bios of the

Judging by the name it's a Reaktek 8029 PCI NE2000 clone card. I believe
Redhat 4.2 installs kernel 2.0.29 or 2.0.30. When the ne2000 driver is
compiled as a module (which it is in most distributions) , the card won't be
detected. You have to upgrade to 2.0.31 to get it running.
Does anybody know if this NIC works with FreeBSD 2.2.7 ?
It works with Debian-Linux (module ne2k-pci) but does not work
with FreeBSD 2.2.6.
In the moment I use same card, ISA-version. This card works fine
with nearly every operating system.
But I would like to replace all ancient ISA-cards. And also
update my actual FreeBSD 2.2.6 ;-}
Thanks in advance,
