I just recently bought a Netgear FA311 Ethernet card, installed it in my
system (RedHat6.1,P166,64MB RAM,kernel 2.2.15). I bought it because it
said that it supported Linux on the box (it does, I've all ready talked
to the company, all they told me was what driver to use).
So anyway, I've compiled the tulip driver into my kernel (I got the
latest version from www.scyld.com/network like Netgear told me to), and
it doesn't get detected. I've been up and down the Ethernet-HOWTO, it
doesn't really help. Windows95 (my system's a dual boot) found the card
with no problem and reports that it's on IRQ 9 (so does my BIOS), and
the IO range is E400-E4FF (nothing is using this, I checked
/proc/ioports). The BIOS lists it after POST as Bus number 0, Device
number 9, Function number 0, VendorID 100B, DeviceID 0020, and IRQ 9. It
also shows up in /proc/pci, if that helps with the problem. From the
looks of it, the only thing that can't find it is the tulip driver!
Anyway, I've got no clue what's going on here, so if anyone's had
experience with Netgear's stuff then I'd be very thankful for any help
you can give me.
