I have my m0n0wall setup and working on my 10/100 network. I am now ready to upgrade to a
10/100/1000 network. I have a switch and NICs picked out for every system except for my generic/PC
I have read that Intel Pro/1000 cards work with m0n0wall, and also that the beta 1.2b1 "added more
Ethernet drivers (esp. Gigabit Ethernet) for generic-pc/cdrom"
When I look at the compatible cards for the standard v1.11, it seems difficult to find one that will
Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit Ethernet - except for the ones based on 82541 which is entire GT and MT line
(the only ones that are currently in stock, at least where I am looking)
The other choices are
3Com 3c996-SX, 3c996-T - These cards cost $150+ USD not exactly in my budget
Netgear GA302T - No jumbo frame support
SysKonnect SK-9D21 and 9D41 - Froogle couldn't find either of these
Does anyone have a suggestion for a card that will work/is available/supports Jumbo Frames/is under
$50? Does anyone know what cards or chipsets were added with 1.2b1 beta? I searched the
development mailing list but found nothing regarding this. Thanks very much!
