Hi fellow linuxers :)
I decided it was finally time to upgrade my home LAN to 100 Mbps and
it seemed that the DFE-550TX was well supported with the
I am running Linux 2.4.2 on my server and Windows 95 on the client.
When I install the DFE-550TX and compile the driver into the kernel, it
seems like all telnet/ssh sessions lock up when more than a few bytes at
a time are written from the computer to the terminal (like en "ls" or
The same happens if I try ftp or even Samba:
I can log on to the SMB-share and browse it. I can even COPY files -
large files - to it - but when I try to READ from the share - it just
hangs and Windows gives me a timeout.
I have tried with another DFE-550TX with the same result.
I have borrowed a 3COM 3C905B-TX form work, and it just works. So I
think there might be something wrong with the sundance.c-driver in 2.4.0
- 2.4.2 (and -ac9 and 2.4.3-pre1) (i haven't tried it under Linux
I would like to add that a DFE-550TX I have installed in a Win95-client
works flawlessly (so far).
Am I the only one with this observation?
