finegan, during my searching for a solution. I found that ALOT of people have problems getting the linksys cards to work on linux machines. (By the way, I tested mine in a windows box. Was bad)

Does this seem to be just a user end error? Or does linux really have to get forced to accept this piece of hardware to work properly?

I just let RedHat set it up for me.

In "/etc/modules.conf" it has "alias eth0 tulip"

In /etc/sysconfig/hwconf it has this:

class: NETWORK
bus: PCI
detached: 0
device: eth
driver: tulip
desc: "Bridgecom, Inc|LNE100TX"
vendorId: 1317
deviceId: 0985
subVendorId: 1317
subDeviceId: 0574
pciType: 1

In "/proc/pci" the kernel has this:

Bus 0, device 11, function 0:
Ethernet controller: PCI device 1317:0985 (Bridgecom, Inc) (rev 17).
IRQ 9.
Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=255.Max Lat=255.
I/O at 0xbc00 [0xbcff].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xd8000000 [0xd80003ff].
