Etherexpress Pro/10+

For some reason I can't get this card to work right under Linux. I am using kernel 2.0.0 and if I try to compile the kernel with support for a etherexpress pro/10, then it won't even recognize at boot. But, if I load it as a module (eepro.c), and specify the irq and io, then it finds it, but doesn't add the gateway to the routing table. And it won't let me add it manually, it does weird stuff. I know the chipset is different on the pro/10+ and pro/10. I wrote to the writer of eepro.c, no response on a version that's compatible with the pro/10+. Can anyone help?? Is there a newer kernel that supports it???

Try to use kernel 2.0.27 or newer with the file eepro100.c that is compatible with pro/10+. Download eepro100.c from http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/eepro100.html

The pro/10+ is either a pci or isa card. If pci, use eepro100.c. If isa, as of July 1998,
none of the drivers work for this card, even if it happens to recognize the card.
(At least I have not succeeded; but one time, like the questioner,
it was recognized but nothing would happen with getting packets on the wire.)
Somewhere someone suggested replacing the pci probing in eepro100.c by isa
probing; no one has stepped up to the plate (and released the source anyway).
