Gigabit Cardbus (PCMCIA) Card
I found three forums (Hardware, Networking, and Laptop) I could post this message to and I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate one. Please forgive me if it isn't.
I managed to blow the Network adapter of my HP Pavilion laptop computer. I figure the easiest and cheapest solution would be to get a PC/Cardbus network adapter and use it. I also thought it would be nice to have gigabit on my laptop. I found 2 cards that both mention Linux in their OS lists.
The first is a CB1000BT from startech.com:
The second is a ENW-3700 from planet.com.tw. (You have to add a www<dot> to the beginning of the following link for it to load.)
I couldn't figure out the chipset on either of these cards. Google hasn't been much help either. Neither seems to be listed on the Supported Cards list of pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net. Has anyone gotten either of these cards to work on Linux? Or any other gigabit PC Card for that matter?
P.S. This thing where you have to make 5 posts to post links is kind of annoying. I realize it's like this to prevent spam, but maybe you should offer the option of a captcha image or something.
