Linksys v4 LNE100TX network Card

well I am back to bug u incessantly in hopes that I may make a post here from within the cozy shell of Linux but to of no avail I have run into trouble once more and need your Linux experience to pull my butt outta the fire. I finally got linux to install with a dual boot of WinXP but ran into trouble...i set it to run DHCP at boot.. due to the fact that I am on AT&T @Home Network which uses DHCP (I know I know thats crap) but when it boots and checks eth0 it fails then I log into Linux and I can not connect to the ' I am wondering if I should change that to something else other than boot but *shrug* no clue here heh I have another friend who has the same problem so it's either driver issues....user error or hardware just aint compatible. ahh crap well I just checked and here

it says that the revision 4 and 4.1 are known incompatibilites with redhat 7 but if any of you people know a way around it and can help in plain english then I hope to hear from you :-D

yeah if your using redhat 7 with this card, it most likely won't work.. i never got mine to work with 7 but it should work with 7.1 or later.. or 6.2 or earlier.. 7 just sucked all round anyways with a broken gcc and much other crap...

LNE 100x

First, I am using Mandy 8.1 and have no troubles. But I dont remeber which distro or ver it was i tried to use and I couldnt get mine to work. After web investigation at sourceforge I discovered that linksys had recently changed their mod chip on the card. so the tulip.c drivers were no longer working. They had to be re-written from source. But then I discovered the latest linux distro resolved that prob.... well bck 2 work hehehhe
