Network Card for an AlphaServer 1000 4/233.

I have an AlphaServer 1000 4/233 that I bought from someone who'd
installed Linux on it.

I've put OpenVMS 7.3-1 on it but it says it doesn't have an ethernet
card, the previous owner said he swapped it for one that Linux would
recognise.

What card do I need to buy (I'm in the UK if that makes a difference to
suppliers) for VMS to use?

The case says 4/233 but the LCD says 4/266.

Thanks, regards, Rob.

From the SRM's >>> prompt a SHOW CONFIG command will show you the CPU speed,
among other things. 8-)

I think a DE500-BA Ethernet PCI card will function in an Alphaserver 1000.

DE500 would be the preferable card, but any old DE450 will work just fine as
well (and are probably being given away these days)

The DE500 and DE450 will work and are commonly available on Ebay for
peanuts.

If you want to buy from a dealer, Abacus Computing in Reading are
always my best bet. 0118 940 3111

Thanks, I've managed to borrow a DE450 while I look for a 500.
