Okay I'll bite...
Authored by: pizza_the_hut on Sep 11, '02 12:30:39PM

Which ethernet cards *are* supported under OS X? I've been looking for an offical list with this information for over a year. I've tried (pre-10.2, of course) several RealTek chipset NIC's with no luck at all.

RealTek driver for Jag.
Authored by: socoast on Sep 11, '02 02:18:24PM

I have a very cheap ($5) no-name PC NIC with a RealTek chip. I downloaded the RealTek driver for OSX and it works fine under Jaguar.
I got the URL from XLR8YourMac.com

ftp://152.104.125.40/lancard/drivers/8139/rtsmacx-8139(111).zip

The D-Link DFE-530TX+ (note the plus) is easy to find, and works fine on my DP 800.
It has the Realtek chipset that works with OS X.
I found this card by searching the MacNN forum. --mk

Ethernet cards in Jaguar

Don't have a list but a Asante 690 card worked for me in Jaguar. Look for kext files for a suggestion of a list.
