Subject: RE: [m0n0wall] Netelligent 10/100 TX -Compaq Deskpro again


Hi 
I have another card on Realtek chipset - its work fine.
I think that problem is that built in card could be different than
Netelligent 10/100 TX Embedded UTP.
I think that it could be 3COM 3C905B-TX but I have no idea chow to check it.
-The simplest way I will open the box and try to identify network controller
chip.
But I don't know how to change the network driver under m0n0wall.
Regards
KS

m0n0wall uses device drivers provided by FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE. Unfortunately
without resorting to the Hackers Guide you are not going to be able to add
support for additional hardware devices.

However I don't think you are going to have to as I don't think you will
have a 3COM 3C905B-TX embedded ethernet controller in your Compaq Deskpro.
If you did, m0n0wall (aka FreeBSD 4.9) would assign the xl driver to it, not
the tl driver. Please check your hardware to confirm this.

One more request, as your Realtek controller is working can you assign it to
the LAN interface and access the m0n0wall configuration GUI. Please post the
relevant entries from the system log (Status -> Diagnostics -> System Logs,
'System' tab) which shows the FreeBSD kernel intialising the network
controllers and assigning drivers. On the m0n0wall box here, the network
controllers are intialised immediately after motherboard devices and before
the floppy & cd-rom drives. Example showing three 3Com NICs:
