Re: Well supported, reliable NICs for Redhat Linux/Fedora?



I have not had any kind of problems with 3COM, D-Link or Realtek, they all do the same job even if the cost is $15.00 or $300.00 as long as they are 10/100 they work fine with
any Linux, even the Asustek or Nvidia 3Com works fine with me. The new Intel
10/100/1000 are more expensive and the transmission is 10/100 only until now. There
are a lot of technologies in the market that we do not need, they just complicate our
life more, it is like SATA hard drives,  I prefer SCSI hard drives. Some 3 com 905 network
card they boot by itself in some types of motherboards, I have inserted it on a 64bit pci
slot and it works fine, on an NVidia chipset motherboard it wont boot by itself, but it
will boot on an SIS chipset motherboard. In some motherboard it makes cycle, but they
are very good and there are always drivers for them.

Someone on the fedora-list has the same problem. Something to do with kudzu
I think. Look in that list instead of this test-list. Sorry I couldn't be
of more help.
