Hi,

I am trying to get a D-Link DFE-530TX+ card to run. It is Revision F1 and uses the DL10030B chip. The card is not recognized by NicPak as a DFE-530TX+ (it isnt recognized at all).

Also, I tried using a LinkSys LNE100 card (v5.1). It worked fine... until I tried installing a second of the same card. The machine initialized the first one, and hung (this was after adding two cards through MPTS). Since then, no matter what I do, it will hang with even one card in it. Is it possible I have damaged the card or the PCI Bus by trying two at the same time without editting the driver statement to assign each driver to a different card slot?

Thanks for any advice,
Robert

I would say no. Except you have damaged it by electrostatic discarge or by excessive mechanical force.

Maybe the bios have assigned different interrupts after inserting the second card. Did you know the interrupt assignment before?

Booting OS/2 with 'Hardware detection on' may help.

Two things to look at, I would think: double check your
PROTOCOL.INI file to make sure there are not incorrect
statements as a result of swapping cards in & out of
the box (and perhaps multiple passes at MPTS). 2nd -
get yourself one of those inexpensive Intel PRO/100
cards - light years better than any Linksys cards. Intel
has 1st rate driver support for those cards - I have used
*many* at home & work and they always fly.

This is actually based on a Realtek 8139 chip, but made especially for D-Link and thus responds with a different PCI-id when queried by the GENMAC and eCS installers so they think it is another chip.

Simply install the latest RTL 8139 drivers, they work fine

This is also the case with the 1000Mb D-Link cards, installers will not see them but work fine with third party Realtek drivers but not with the original ones, in the cas of OS/2 you need 1.10 or higher and it works with the D-Link branded cards
