Compatible NIC with Ubuntu 6.10
« on: April 02, 2007, 05:40:06 am »
I currently have a trendnet te100pciwn, and have a hell of a time getting it to work. What card could I pop in and ubuntu 6.10 would just recognize it? I am hoping to set this box up as a router/dhcp eventually. But for now just need internet working on it :(

Any advice or recommendations would be great, I am looking to go cheap, but will pay out if needed.

NICs with a Realtek 8139 (100Mbit) or 8169 (Gbit) chipset work with almost all Linux distros and they are cheap. With the 8169 model, Gbit speeds are not easily attainable but it is faster than 100 Mbit and still cheap.

I have a 3Com 3c905, it's working fine when downloading from the Internet, but when I try to download/upload from/to a PC in my internal network the speed is max 4kB/s. Networksettings are the same as the rest of the internal machines. What am I overseeing?
