Re: Compex RL100 TX PCI

I had faced the same problem too.
Though only with RedHat 6.0 (never tried with 6.1)

Please refer to the link:

The Compex RL100 ATX PCI uses the Winbond W89C840 chip.
This is not supported by NE2000 modules (ne.o & ne2k-pci.o)

On the above page u will find the source for the module that supports
the card. (winbond-840.c). The instructions for creating the module is
there in the code (at the end).
Create the object file and use : "insmod winbond-840.o"
You can also add the line: "alias eth0 winbond-840" in
This should autodetect the card at every boot. If it doesn't u may need
to add "options winbond-840 io=0x??? irq=?"

I thank Donald Becker <> for his help in
getting me started. Hope this helps you
