pcmcia wired nics

Postby zenlunatic » 2006-06-04 17:54

I've asked around the internet on various GNU/Linux sites/forums and haven't gotten a straight answer. I need a PCMCIA wired Nic for my laptop. Can anyone tell me one that works without binary blobs? Thanks.

Oh and hopefully this Nic will be something I can pick up on ebay or compusa.

Take a look at the Linksys PCM1000. (I just glanced at it, and it looks sort of like a pcmcia card with a wire attached.)

no promises but the ones I amd using or have used in the past...
CNet Singlepoint - not a dongle type but has a rigid port on the side and I think is actually a realtek card
3com - 3c574tx is a dongle type
couple other old 3coms cant remember numbers

search on ebay for ethernet pcmcia linux should do it :)

nope :( sorry...

Have a couple extras...but they are just that MY extras - you gotta get your own! :D

oh - and make sure to search titles AND descriptions on ebay and variations on what I stated. Most every OLD 3com card I have tried worked fine.

Will a 16bit card on a 32/16 port hurt performance?
