netgear fa311... again

hey, i'm a linux newbie running suse professional 8.2 with a netgear fa311 nic and i've read about one thousand threads with advice on how to get it to work but nothing i do seems to work all that well. when i run kinternet it says it can not connect and that smpppd is not running. so far i've run modprobe natsemi and dhcpcd natsemi and i still do not get the results i am looking for. right now i can google and go to netgear's website but they come in at dialup speed and i can not do anything beyond that. some help?

I was looking at the HCL entry for the Netgear FA311 and it seems that it is actually a very compatible card. One of the guys there uses the "tulip" drivers, not the natsemi ones - have you tried tulip? You may want to see if the tulip ones work, and if they don't then please report back.


P.S Could it be possible that your current version of natsemi is having problems with some of SUSE's software or kernel?

i tried it with the tulip module and that did not work at all. i am not sure about the kernel part, but i haven't done much with suse since i took it out of the box and installed it. so i do not see why the driver would be outdated.
