FC3 tulip Netgear FA310TX bug apparently fixed

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Old drivers for this device were showing each pair of bytes swapped in
the MAC address of one of my Ethernet cards.

What I see now is 00:02:E3:09:73:C0. What I used to see is
02:00:09:E3:C0:73. The difference came today, when I upgraded the box
from FC2 to FC3.

The "new" MAC address is consistent with a sticker on the card, so I
guess it is the correct one. Also, it agrees with what Windows 9x
reported when I used this card in a W9x box. Apparently FC3 has
cleared up a bug that the driver has had for several years.

Does anyone have a list of Ethernet vendor IDs  they can check against
this MAC address? That should tell for sure which is correct.

lsmod reports the tulip driver present.

I am putting this on the list so that anyone else who uses this (or a
similar) card won't be caught and surprised as I was.
