802.1p priority queuing on 3com or Intel NICs


This is my first post, so I want to greet all members of the community first.

But now to my problem:

On two computers I have installed a Intel PRO/100 S Desktop and a 3com 3c905b-TX NM network adapter. Both are 802.1Q and 802.1p compliant and have more than one TX queue integrated for priority queuing.
Is it possible to activate this feature with the standard kernel drivers e100 and 3c59x?
If not, are there any alternative drivers known?
And if, how can I activate it?

Thanks for helping in advance.

I'm not certain that either are... but there's an alternative driver produced by 3com for the 905 series available in source from their site, and the eepro100 becker driver may support it.


Will tell you and let you set either if you can.
