The tulip driver is the correct one to use with this card. Just a warning - this is often a difficult card to get working properly in Linux. Sometimes it works other times it doesn't.

I'm sure if you give us a little more info (what configs you have now, how you access the net, etc) we will be able to help you out.

You said that you think everthing is configured properly. What did you configure?

Just type ifconfig at a prompt and then copy/paste the output from the command into your post. Do the same with route. ifconfig will show us what interfaces are detected and route will show us how linux is trying to route network traffic.

Cool Intel PRO 100 VE NIC + Mandrake 7.1

I have installed mandrake 7.1 linux on IBM pentium III but linux could not
detect my network card (Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Desktop adapter). I checked the
adapter card support for linux and it states that the driver only supports
Linux* 2.25 and above. I do not think there is such version of linux or am I
wrong?
What can I do to get Linux detect my NIC

SnoozeButton,
Your card is not being detected. You would have an eth0 if it were. Did you try loading the tulip driver? If not type "insmod tulip" at a prompt.

Hey sojsam,

When it states that your card is only supported in Linux 2.2.5 or above, that is referring to the Kernel. If your card states it is supported, then check their website for a driver download. Most likely they will have one for your card if they state it is supported.

Good Luck

Drew
