My "8390" Linux ethercard drivers are now available from usra.edu and
super.org in ~ftp/pub/linux/ethercards/*. They'll be at tsx-11 and
These drivers support all common 8390-based ethernet boards. Currently
"common" is defined as:
* 3Com 3c503 Board loaned by Chance Reschke, USRA.edu (thanks!)
3Com 3c503/16 and excellent documentation provided by 3Com.
NE1000 Novell and Eagle are useless for documentation,
* NE2000 but copied the designs directly from NatSemi;->.
* Alta Combo(NE2000 clone)
Aritsoft LANtastic AE-2 (NE2000 clone w/ extra memory)
D-Link Ethernet II
E1010 No ID PROM and sketchy info from Ctron means you'll
E1010-x have to compile-in information about your board.
* WD8013 Board loaned by Russ Nelson, Crynwr Software. Thanks!
* I've seen it work myself!
There is support for the following boards, but since I've only been
able to borrow a thinnet of an HP ethercard I haven't been able to test it:
HP LAN adaptors
If your 8390-based ethercard isn't on this list please send me email
and, if possible, documentation and an evaluation board.
