D-Link ethernet card


I have looked hard and wide from every linux discussion group on how to get SuSE 7 to find my D-Link DFE 530TX PCI ethernet card, I have tried everything but to no good, I have been told that the D-Link cards are a bit difficult for Linux, Windows no problem, is there an answer to getting this card working.

Help PLease

Offhand I don't remember exactly which module, but I think it's 'rtl8139'. Try
Code:
modprobe rtl8139 alias eth0

The only problems I've had with them is mixing them with other NICs in the same box.

If it is a RealTek 8139 based card, and you're using the 2.2 kernel tree then you might also want to look at the rtl8139too.o module too.

D-Link Ethernet card

Thanks for the fast reply, I stupidly forgot to mention that I am a complete beginner on Linux and need to be hand fed with this OS, now reading your response do I write your answer in a terminal if so I have and I got a fail answer at the end, my kernal is 2.2.16.

Yast 2 will not detect this card so do I have to do things using Yast 1 which is no problem i am quite familier now with Yast 1.

sorry for this but I do want to spend more time on Linus and less on the Windows :-)

Change fron D-link to Planet

Thanks for all the suggestion but still D-link was being recognised so I had the ethernet card for my old Cable modem which I used for Linux.

I put that in, Linux recognised it using Yast 2 but when I log onto Netscape it says cannot find the server, do I have to type in the server details in the preference box in Netscape.

And as I was watching the screen after logging out I notice a line saying Power Status:BAD

Is there something wrong my power supply now?

I can't tell how far along you are with the network or the type of connection you are trying to use. Please supply more details for network configuration help.


Are you running ups or some other ups daemon?

Sounds like apmd - advanced power management. If you're on a notebook and you're not on AC power you're gonna go THUD. If you're not then you're OK. My desktop reports battery at "-1%".

Sorry for being so stupid but when you say Daemon what is it?

I see two come on the screen when it boots up is this what you want to know what those two are?

Sorry for being soooo slow but I'v never had so much fun since the good old commodore days :-)

Have you got your D-Link DFE 530 working or not?

I checked the D-Link site and it has a map for the linux drivers.

DFE-530Tx = via-rhine I,II

rtl8139 is for the 530tx+

If the D-link card is a 530tx late model then you have to install the new Module for it. The chipset is a Via Rhine.

Cant remember where I saw the Module but I expect you could find it at any good search engine are Linux website

Hope this clears up some problems

Have Fun
