Use a second ethernet card for internet sharing
Authored by: psx on Mar 24, '03 03:29:38PM

Hey all -
I'm not sure if this is the best spot, but hopefully someone can help, or has run into this already.

I have a g3 powerbook that I'm using as a webserver. I'm running 10.2.4. The built-in ethernet is broken so up until jaguar, I've used a farallon fast EtherTX-10/100 Cardbus adapter. A brief history using this card and machine:

9.x - card works with farallon driver
10.? (public beta) - card didn't work at all, didn't even show up
10.0 - card worked! no extra drivers
10.1.x - still working! yippee!
10.2.x - kernel panic whenever card is near (in) machine!!

For now I have a linksys wireless card in there that works great with the sourceforge wireless driver. But it's rather slow and I want to hardwire it, since I don't need it to be wireless (it sits alone, on a desk, 5 feet from the router).

So does anyone have any idea what changed between 10.1.5 and 10.2?? Is there any driver that will get it working again? Anyone encounter this at all before?

Thanks a ton for any insight!
