Question Network interface card compatibility..

I have attempting to setup a centOs based server (SME 7.2) and have run into some difficulties with NIC card compatibility. I'm seeking information on NIC card compatibility for this unit.

I tried to use a linksys 10/100 PCI Fast Ethernet card and a Netgear GA311 NIC card; both of which were recognized within their chipset yet I never got a connection out to the net. I had it set behind another server but all other computers looking for a dhcp address get one without issue and connect just as fine. Are there tried and tru RedHat compliant nic cards that I can specifically seek? (this is probably known knowledge but CentOs is based off of RedHat)Everything else works fine.. Thanks for the prompt response....

Their list is for 'certified hardware', They probably charge the hardware vendor a certification fee to get on the list.
RHEL and in turn CentOS should support far more hardware than is probably in that list

I would think either of the cards you have tried should work.. I don't think your issue is the NIC.
