Can anyone recommend some PCI 100 Mbit ethernet cards/drivers
that work well with the 2.4 linux-mips kernel?
I've used the tulip driver and a DEC21140-based ethernet adapter
(proprietary) on rm7000/big endian. There are a few endian bugs (at
least in 2.4.2) dealing with some debugging messages, but besides
that the driver works just fine.
Note that the 2.4.2 tulip driver uses PCI I/O space. If you don't
support PCI I/O space on your platform, this may be a problem. Later
kernels have an option for using memory mapped PCI space, but I
haven't tried that driver option yet.
I've also successfully used an i82543-based PCI adapter using the
driver available on intel's website. This is a 10/100/1000 adapter.
Again, the only changes that I needed were because of the proprietary
nature of my platform's I/O interfaces; if you are using intel's
adapter the driver should work for you out of the box.
