    Driver for Broadcom 5700 ethernet


    Hello,

    I have a dell server (PE2650) which has 2 broadcom 5700 NICs . I had to install RH 7.2 on this machine. With the default kernel (2.4.7-10) I was able to install the driver RPMs for BroadCom NICs but I had to upgrade the kernel to 2.4.9-13 (smp) for a specific purpose. However, the NICs dont get recognized under this kernel. Does anyone know of drivers for these NICs that would work with 2.4.9-13 kernel. If so could you kindly post the link to download them .

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Thanks
    K

    They only seem to have one linux driver. It worked for me on a 2.6 kernel. Install the driver, then reboot, and let Kudzu configure the "new" ethernet device. Should work fine after that.
