It's not really a huge problem.

Sooner or later you'll see a driver for it, but in the mean time you merely need to get a supported nic, which are very cheap.

It's far less grief this way and it will probably be plug in and go, for you.

Same problem here

I've got the same problem since i installed 10.1 community.
In Mdk 10 there was no problem, but now i can't connect to the internet.
My card is an onboard 3Com 3C940 10/100/giga (that's how Mdk identify's it, and its the wright one), and the driver is sk98lin. When i look in /var/log/messages i can see it connects, and almost instant disconnects again. I'm thinking when it worked in 10, why doesn't it in 10.1.

And what can i do to make it work?
