CTPCI & DLink DFE-538TX **works**

Post by wongck »

So this is a RTL8139 based card from DLINK that I had for may be 3-4 years now.
Even as this card was listed in the RTL8139 source code, It was not picked up by the driver due to wrong vendorid/deviceid.

So this weekend, I decided to just add in the vendorid & deviceid into the current RFTL8139 driver.
And it works. :D

I cannot claim any credits as I just added the correct vendor & device id.
But I am happy now that I have another network card.

output during driver init:
