Glad to help!
Yeah, that's what mine says too. Interesting, seems to suggest that
all Omegas use the same chipset. I did a little searching on Google
Groups (had to use Firefox on the PC) and it seems several people
referred to Omegas using RTL8139 in the past.
Knocking the RTL off the model number on my eBay search has turned up
quite a few, including new and boxed units. Some specifically state
that they're the 8139D chipset. Searching for 8139D in Computing with
Include Description ticked brings up 17 results at the time of typing.
Good luck! I'm certainly feeling a lot more optomistic about this
project than I was! :-)
I think that the EtherS Obey file is a standard part of the
Select/Adjust distribution as I've got one too (both on this Omega and
on Aeryn, my A7000+, although the latter is in a different directory
as it's a RISC OS 6 machine). Presumably the actual EtherS module
itself would be on the RiscStation. I have a vague memory that most
RiscStations shipped with networking, but I could be wrong.
I don't think that ROL ever had copies of the network card driver
archives for the Omega so they wouldn't be in the distribution.
Likewise, they wouldn't know which file to move as their Omega was
picked up for repairs by Dave Atkins and they never saw it again.
The ones I saw must've come direct from Microdigital. Networking was
an optional extra on Omegas and the drivers didn't come out straight
away either. We didn't bother as we had no need for it at the time.
What version of EtherH are you running, by the way? Help EtherH at the
