Hi.

    I have bought some MB-3792G. This has three network adapter cards on
board:

two dual 10/100 MB ethernet and one Giga bit ethernet.

I have installed the linux kernel 2.4.18, the drivers for the two dual
10/100 MB ethernet cards work fine, but

the driver for the dp83820 giga ethernet from national semiconductors,
doesn't work. I read a faq that I found

on the internet and visited some internet sites, but the problem still
remains.

    I have tested the drivers from scyld.org, cdrom drivers that shipped
with the motherboard and the driver

recognized by the 2.4.18 linux kernel.

   I have a dp83820 d-link. When compiling the kernel 2.4.18 with the
support of the dp83820, it works very fine.

    When loading the module ns820.o (scyld.org driver) I get these
messages:

Using  /lib/modules/2.4.2-2/kernel/drivers/net/ns820

This is the message I get when i run the lsmod

This is the message I get when i run ifconfig

Any idea...?
Thanks in advance...!
