Drivers for old NIC (RTL8139/dfe-528tx)

Post by joesl » 2018/07/26 16:18:37

Hello everyone,

trying to get an old NIC to work:

Code: Select all

03:02.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: D-Link System Inc RTL8139 Ethernet [1186:1300] (rev 10)
I couldn't find the exact deviceid at elrepo (http://elrepo.org/tiki/DeviceIDs)

Anyone could give me any pointers?

Thanks a lot!

modinfo 8139too | grep 1186 says that 8139too should provide support for that chipset id. Part of the CentOS kernel modules so nothing extra to be done.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

You are right.. before I couldn't get it to work but it was not due to the driver:

Code: Select all
