Well I read the latest newsletter and it mentioned that the RTL8139 driver is supposed to work now which is what I have so I thought I would have a look at it So I installed the OBOS networking stack with jam but only the loopback device showed up. I thought I would try with the latest code before I complained :-) I figured since I was supposed to be on the media kit team that I might have access. > Not that I want to forbid you to give to look at the network stack > code and fix > it, thought ;-) > > Which kind of network card do you have (vendor, model, chip name)? PCI bus, device #8: NIC (Ethernet) [2|0|0] Current configuration: irq  io range: min d000 max d000 align 0 len 100 mem range: min df02b000 max df02b000 align 0 len 100 1 configurations Bus-dependent information: vendor id: 0x10EC Realtek Semiconductor product id: 0x8139 Chip Number: RT8139A/B/C/D Description: Fast Ethernet Adapter It's a genuine realtek card. Works great with the R5 supplied driver. As a question if I wanted to use the R5 driver can I just copy it across? Do I need to symlink it as well? Is it not a good idea to try the new driver out?
