Amithlon + OpenPCI + RTL8139
« on: February 20, 2003, 02:31:35 PM »
I have an 10/100 Ethernet card that is identified by Windows XP as an Accton 10/100, Linux uses the 8139too kernel module, but I cannot for the life of me get it to work under amithlon using OpenPCI and the 8139 device driver.  Anyone have any clues?  Is there a difference between an RTL8139 and the 8139too? I've noticed linux has modules for both.

I was just playing around with spare bits of hardware the other night.  Too much time on my hands for once! :)

Try to look at your NIC ... what chip is on it ... I would belive that it is an 8390 NIC chip ... made by National Semiconductor ... If it is that chip, then you should use a driver for 8390 or NE-2000 ... try to look at it.

use the NE2000 driver and it should work :-D

Your card uses the 8139too driver on Linux because it also supports the NE2000 clones ... Accton uses the 8390 NIC (Original NE2000 NIC) ... and Amithlon supports all NE2000 compatible PCI cards ... so it couldn't be more perfect ;-)

Use the NE2000 driver and it will work :-D

amithlons NE2000 compatible driver only supports 10Mbit transfers. But
I can tell I have used the openPCI solution since it was released and
its fantastic meens I dont need 2 networks cards now

@hnl_dk

Thanks for the advice, I've got the day off work today so I'll give it a try.

I've managed to get amithlon + os3.9 + genesis on it's own bootable partition. powerne2k.device doesn't recognize the 8139too PCI card.  The OpenPCI driver now appears to recognize the card, but tries to use BOOTP to get my IP/DNS etc... but can't as  I have NTL broadband which uses DHCP.  Any help would be appreciated.
