Hi Anthony,

please try the program i posted in my last message (NetGear FA410TXC Setup). From looking at the vendor code in the ethernet address, it looks like both cards are from the same vendor (or the NetGear card looks like a re-labled DFE-650).

Hi Jochen,

Thanks for the tip, which looks promising.

I'm no longer in a position to try it out, since I
had to exchange my D-Link DFE-650TX for a working
card (incidentally, an AnyCom ECO Ethernet 10/100,
which worked right out of the box).

But the idea should be useful for anyone who is
struggling with one of the newer DFE-650TX
cards. In particular, it suggests that these newer
D-Link cards are not identical to the older
ones. (One of our older ones had a hw_addr of
00:80:C8:42:95:E9; the addresses of your FA410TXC
card and my newer DFE-650TX both start with

In addition to the hardware addresses, your error
messages certainly look similar to mine.

Question bad performance with Jochen's patch and DFE-650

Although I'm really glad that Jochen's tool works pretty well to enable that D-Link card I had to find out that the card only performs as if it was a 10Mbit card, i.e. 10% of the performance under Windows98.

The LEDs at hub and cardadapter indicate the selected transmission protocol.

Any idea out there what I could do to get it faster?
