I have an AMDPCNET Family Ethernet Adapter card and i have some problems to
get it work under Linux
May sombody help me please
Okay before posting this question I read everything I could and I still
can't get my network card to work. ( i was able to troubleshoot sndconfig,
Xfree86 3.3.3 and KDE but this is kicking my butt)
I have an Allied Telesyn 2450 PCI ethernet card . According to the
EthernetHowTO this is really an AMD 79C970 and uses the "lance" driver
When I installed Caldera 1.2 it setup my ethernet card just fine. However,
when I switced to RH 5.1 I have been unable to configure it correctly.
Here is all the info I have (as reported by Windows device manager)
Device: AMD PCNet Family Ethernet Adapter (PCI-ISA)
I/O : E800h - E81Fh
Windows TCP/IP settings
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Installed Gateways: 192.168.100.1
Domain : yyy.zzzzz.net
DNS Server SO
Domain Suffix SO
my linux kernel is 2.0.35
Does RH support AMD chipset ethernet cards? When I try to use the Kernel
Configurator in Xwindows it doesn't offer anything under the eth0 module
type list that looks like amd, or lance.
Thanks for any help in getting me on the net.
