Other cards

This driver should also work for the Network Everywhere NC100, which is mostly a rebranded Linksys LNE100TX, but I haven't had time to check. 69.37.227.252 (niteice)

Vmware networking

Does anyone think that this might work for networking within vmware?? it could be possible as all that would have to be done is to compile a driver of the AMD PCNET ethernet card.

  • No, this driver is for tulip-compatible cards only. Apparently, the author started with the FreeBSD dc driver (same device) and ended up using it as more of a guide rather than a code base, since IOKit is very different from how the FreeBSD kernel works. Someone with enough time/patience could certainly port the FreeBSD PCnet driver, but it would be much much more than a recompile. 69.37.227.252 (niteice)
