intel i82540EM 1000BASE-T Ethernet, rev. 2
shows up in devices and the driver loads without errors. However,
there is no network connection. It says cable is disconnected. I have
checked the cable with cable tester and tried several different
cables. Of interest this card will not work in any old pentium pro
systems I have around. I suspect something is not compatible. At least
in the alpha the card is seen.
Okay. I installed intel card in powermac beige g3 (very old mac). It
works perfectly. Go figure! The d-link card would not work in any old
pci based computers I have.
I guess the question is what pci 1000Base-T cards work in older pci
systems. I have read some information and most of the newer 1000Base-T
cards require pci 2.2 specs. Don't have a clue what pci specs these
I guess it is time to throw this stuff away ;-)).
