What is this DLink Express Ethernetwork card for??

hi nadeemsultan

this works exactly as like a built in LAN adapter to your laptop. You may use this as a backup for your built in laptop LAN adapter. Altough this is more useful for some IT professionals who sometimes require a two LAN setup. I have also attached a useful guide that if found on the product catalogue itself.

Connect to your wired home network by adding a D-Link 10/100 Fast Ethernet Notebook Adapter to your notebook computer. Once connected, you can access shared documents, music, and photos from other computers in your network. If your network has a high-speed Internet connection, you can also check e-mail, browse the web, and chat with friends and family online.

hope this helps. please let me know.

The 100m light flashes but the 10m don,t flash even though connected but speed very slow

The speed you are connected to your network at is 100mbs.
the 10m light shouldn't flash unless that's the speed of your network.
the slow speed is probably due to the bandwidth usage to the internet.
if anything else connects the internet on the network it will share the bandwidth. also depends on the broadband speed you are subscribed to.

Linux 5 is not detecting my broadband modem

The connecting to internet is very easy in linux .

There are many steps but i am saying simple one

Initially configure the adsl router with ppoe over ethernet and enable dhcp address option.

Next plug the ethernet cable from router to the inteface of lan card.

Boot the redhat machine.

In the system-->Administration-->network options check whether lan card is detected and active .

If the lan card is not active activate and save

In lan card select option assign assig ip automatically

check whether ip is assigned by using command ifconfig .

I need internet on yy pc card

You need an ADSL Modem & a Broadband connection. You run a cable from the Ethernet connection to the Modem/Router, and that connects to the telephone line, and then onto the internet.

I'm trying to get a driver for a D-Link DFE-528TX PCI Adapter. I cannot network the PC as it is missing at the moment (so I can't use this PC to log onto the net). All I can find on the net are driver...

As you already know, the adpater has been discontinued, but D-Link has the drivers online for OS's thru XP. Follow this link, choose the tab on the right "Support Resources" and you will find the drivers. While this is for the 500TX, it will work for the 528TX.

Network card not detecting in RHEL4 & 5

The solution proposed by user 'Solutions58' seems to be about windows box since he is talking about 'Device Manager'
RHEL4 or 5 detect compatible NIC cards during boot up process automatically. Sometimes NIC may be detected but may not work properly due to lack of proper driver (a.k.a Module - in Linux culture).
Do this -
1. First find out from HP's web site if NIC for your model has Linux support. You can also use Google to find appropriate driver for your NIC. If yes then you need to follow instructions that are provided in the INSATLL file that comes bundled with the driver.
2. Otherwise buy a $10 NIC card which has Linux support. Disable your onboard NIC through your computer's BIOS and boot it. Linux should detect your NIC right away.
3. Following command can help you in your quest
As root
# dmesg | grep eth (Will show your detected NIC)
# service network status (Will also show configured & active devices)
# ifconfig -a (Will also show your network devices and related info)
# system-config-network (will let you configure your NIC via GUI)
(This would be your best choice)
# system-config-newtowk-tui (Will give you a text base interface to configure your NIC)

NIC Connection question, Manual in XP, Automatic in Linux

Its depend on your LAN Card Configuration, something it obtain or directly detect your internet connection but sometimes its not. That is why to make sure that you can connect you manually put IP Address on it. Uncheck the limited or no connectivity on the Lan Setting to make that when you are using Obtain IP Address then it shows and detect your Router or Hub with internet provider.

Ethernet controller

Is this an external PCMIA card that you want to install into your laptop, or are you opening up the laptop and modifying the motherboard?

If its a PCMIA card that you are looking for, then I would suggest the D-Link DFE-690TXD PCMIA Ethernet Adapter. I have one that I'm using with an old HP notebook that has a fried internal network card. You can buy it from newegg for about 32 bucks with shipping.

Here is a link to it:

No this is not a wireless card. It must be connected with a wire to a switch or a router. All DFE-xxx products from D-Link are wired network adapters only.
