Thanks guys,

It’s just that this was my first post and I didn’t get
a single answer. So you have never heard of this
network card. I apparently made the mistake of buying
the first card I saw without considering Linux

Telsa: I’m not sure what exactly you will try to find
out, but I appreciate any help you can offer. The card
I have is “Sweex PCI LANCARD” (NOT the one with wake
on LAN). The driver is downloaded from the
manufacturer at:
They claim it worked on RedHat 7.1/7.2 (and also
Mandrake 8.0/8.1, Slackware 8.0, SuSe 7.2, RedFlag
2.4, Caldera 3.0). Naturally the manufacturer was the
first place I e-mailed, but I got no response.

I assumed since it was the right driver for the card
then there is just some little setting, source file or
some other little thing that would fix it. What I
would like to hear is some suggestions that I can
test. There are many experienced people here and I’m
sure you have a few tricks up your sleeve.
Remember I just installed RedHat8, so I can mess it up
testing anything and format it and try again. So hold
no idea back. Hit me with all you’ve got.

Thanks again for all the replies.
