    Any of the Intel class will work with the e100 or e1000 moduels loaded, but the kernel supports several D-link NIC's Im not positive which though, but check out thier website for drivers. I use several Dlink routers, printe servers and switches ,but never a NIC all of the before mentioned work fine though.

    well did you try and see if the correct module is loaded by default? try using it, if you have proablems then more can be done.

    well, I went to broadcom's website and downloaded the driver for linux. Now when I activate the ethernet device I get the following error:
    Code:
    Determining IP information for eth0:1...SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address
     failed.
    I'm configured for DHCP, and on a network. Any IDeas? Thanks
