Hi! I've got Netgear EA201 and kernel 2.6.3. What do I need to make it working? I've searched Internet a lot, but...
Thanks in advance,
The Netgear EA201 and EA201c both appear to be NE2000 clones. That would suggest using the ne2k-pci.ko driver. However ... there are some mentions of (a) turning PnP off in the bios; (b) specifying interrrupt and memory space as driver options. Be forewarned.
If they are really NE2000 clones than you need the ne.o module, not the ne2k-pci.o module. Sorry, Win, but the original question was about an ISA card ;-). However, I don't remember if the old ISA cards are enabled by default in the kernel.
Thanks Win and Andy for your answers!
I've already sorted that problem. The answer - "alias eth0 ne" (it loads "8390" and "crc32" modules automatically- check if you have them in case).
Yes, I mentioned ISA. If I've understood correctly there are two types of NE2000 clones - ISA and PCI. But for a moment I was caught on this mix relying on some confused sources on the Internet. (Suse forums "gurus"... etc ) My problem appeared because "ne" driver was not installed for some reasons from my base ISO CD. And I started thinking "maybe there are some changes in kernel 2.6.3 ...) Fortunately I have another PC with one more NE2000 clone (I can't remember the make)tbut PCI type. So with "alias ne2k-pci" (+ "8329" + "crc322 as well automatically) I was able to continue my intallation from there. And then I tested it with ISA card. So they both work on Arch .
