Does the e100 driver work for you?

Comment 2 Scott Feldman 2004-03-04 04:09:45 UTC
Stephen, change you're /etc/modules.conf alias from eepro100 to e100 
and get the latest e100 driver from  
Try e100-3.0.15.  I've tested this with the Cardbus II nics, and it 
works fine.  I think eepro100 is going to have a hard time with this
