lot of problem with kaweth driver


I am having a lot of problem using Kaweth driver with NetGear EA101 USB ethernet. It connect "properly" except that I see some non-fatal error (i think) Failed to set mode Rx -16

But when i am in transfer it randomly crash, freezing the whole system.

I am using kernel 2.4.21 and the computer configuration don't seem to alter the bug since I have 2 different computer using this device.

The last version of this driver is about 2-3 years old ... is there a new or alternative one ?

make it crash then copy / paste us the results. Also do "dmesg" and paste the end of that to us. This will make it easier for us to help you.
