Forcing 10BaseT for eepro100
Posted on 1998-11-10
I've just installed Red Hat 5.1 on a Pentium Pro and can't get eth0 to intialize. I am using an Intel EtherExpress Pro 100B network card. I think, from reading lots of docs, that my problem may to two-pronged:
1. eepro100 driver uses the same IRQ as the Adaptec 2940.
2. I am using 10BaseT and I may need to load the driver as a module and force use of 10 MB ethernet because the NWay autonegotiation is not working.
I have read up on the documentation(Ethernet HOWTO) and there appears to be a solution, but I am too much of a newbie to figure it out.
Can anyone give me some advice to get the eth0 up and running?
