DLink 530TX, what chip does it use?

Post by bjrose » Fri, 12 Jan 2001 13:57:16



I've just built a 2.4 kernel, it recognizes my 3Com card but not my
DLink 530TX ethernet card. When ran the configurator the 3Com's card's
driver was obvious, but the Dlink's driver isn't. What chip does the
Dlink use?

Thanks,

Josh

Assuming, that the card is 530TX and _not_ 530TX+, it uses the via-rhine
module. 530TX+ in contrast uses RTL8139 (8139too module).

do:
        cat /proc/pci
Find the Ethernet controller.
It should give you more info on which driver is apropriate.
If this does not produce enough information, see
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/*.
There is lot's of info ...
I use a DLink DE-530?? which has a DEC DC21041 chip. The tulip
driver works for this card as well as the de4X5 driver.

    The 530TX uses the Via-Rhine chip. It sounds like you have the newer 530+.

actually the box reads 'DE-530CT+', so its probably a different
thing.
Anyway, cat /proc/pci should make things more clear.

Thanks for the tip, cat /proc/pci told me that the Dlinx 530Tx+ is a
Realtek 8139.

   Ethernet controller: Realtek 8139 (rev 16).
      Medium devsel.  Fast back-to-back capable.  IRQ 5.  Master
Capable.  Latency=64.  Min Gnt=32.Max Lat=64.
      I/O at 0x1400 [0x1401].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xf4000000 [0xf4000000].

...
Quote:> The DE-530TX board uses the Tulip driver.

...

I don't think that card was named "TX". It was only a 10Mbit card.
I think the name ended with "CT" or "CT+".

via-rhine, for DFE530TX
But this car doesn't work very well on many chipsets, probing problems,
and conflicts when using multiple ethernet cards!
(tested on both 2.2.17,2.2.18)

1. Using FreeBSD with Dlink DFE-530TX

   Has anyone ever configured FreeBSD to run with D-link DFE-530TX
Fast Ethernet card ? We're thinking about buying some of these cards
but we just don't know if FreeBSD works fine with it.


   Thanx in advance.
