linksys cards and crashes

Post by TheDesignFly » Fri May 30, 2003 11:29 am

Has anyone managed to run a stable mailenable server with these cards in? I have a linksys lne 100tx. What drivers are people using if they do run a stable server?

There are only two cards that experience problems - LNE100TX is one of them. (Google search for BSOD and LNE100TX and it seems that everyone is in the same boat).

The only solution we have found to this is to swap the card.

There are three other theories that I am aware of:
- Disable any BIOS optimisations (Shadowing, etc).
- Attempt to source the Manufacturer's drivers for the card.
- There appears to be a correlation with GeForce/NVidia video cards (but this i probably just coincidence)

I found some updated drivers as there was a google result for the search you said to look at.

A list of chipsets found on the linksys cards can be found at http://garrett.damore.org/software/ethe ... port.shtml

Couple the chip that you have the data found on the following page and you can download an updated driver http://www.admtek.com.tw/index/index/Download.htm

An intresting page for the card I found at
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/j.buchanan ... start.html

Not bad for the first search result but just a pity I couldnt test the updated drivers as my isp changed my network card about 2 hours after I changed the drivers!
