    LAN Card help


    Hey. I am looking at LAN cards on ebay, and they both say that they work with Linux. I am just posting here to see if any of you have had experience with either of them, or know for sure that they work. Thanks.

    LAN card help

    Hi,

    I suggest your check with your Linux distribution website for hardware compatibility (e.g. RedHat hardware compatibility list) before you purchase any item.

    The items may claim that they are Linux ready but the included drivers may not be compatible for your kernel version. I realised the driver for the SMC2662W wireless USB adapter indicated certain kernel version as an example.

    In addition, your Linux disribution may only support certain chipset(s) of the various NICs in the market. For example, RedHat supports Realtek RTL 8139 family chipsets.

    For your reference.

    I check with Mandrake, and the D-Link one is known hardware. So that's what I'll get. Thanks for the help.
