If it's the original version of this card, it's based on a VIA-Rhine
chipset, and you use the via-rhine.o module.

If however, it's a newer version (it may have "rev B1" on the board), it
uses the VIA-Rhine II chipset, which requires a newer version of the
via-rhine.o module (1.07 or later). However, we've had problems with the
newer driver (1.08) as soon as we started pushing out a decent amount of
data - the card would lock up and not work again until the module was
unloaded then loaded again. This driver can be found (in source code
form) from http://www.scyld.com/ under the Linux network drivers link if
you need to try it.

Must get around to reporting this problem to Don Becker

1. D-Link DFE-530tx Rev A-1 and DFE-530tx Rev D2

Freebsd ver 4.0 and 4.3   the Rev A-1 board is recognized (pci) perfect.

the Rev D2 board is a PIA.. I did manange to foolaround with the
/usr/src/sys/pci/if_vrreg.h file and get it

to been seen but then the MAC addr comes back all zeros ??

is there anyway to get this new board to work..

I did note on the rev D the  Vendor ID = 1106  the product 1186   1300
0200

on the old one ( rev A ) the product something like  3043..

anyhelp would be great..

Terry
