Hi ,I recently purchased an intex rtl8139d lan card.Beaware that this card is not a genuine Realteck card and so will not workwith KERNEL 2.6. Driver provided might compile with 2.4.The chipset it uses is called sc92031 manufactured by Silan Microelectronics , China.the windows driver it provides is written to fool the user to show REALTEK8139D on the system menu.If anyone has this working on kernel 2.6 plz let me know.the label on the IC read rtc8139 not rtl8139 (rs.250/-)

I got Intex LAN card for 180 bucks about 8 months ago and Micr0nsoft XP detects it as RTL8139 which is pretty fine. It also gets automatically detected by SuSE 10.0(dont know whats the kernel version) B)

you dont need to compile kernel again with the driver provided with it . All intex lancards work well with 2.4x and 2.6x kernel . I had 2 different intex lancards and almost all linux distros i tried took it properly by themselves . Most of them used rtl8139 driver

My lspci output is 01:01.0 Ethernet controller: Unknown device 1904:2031 (rev 01)The reason why 2031 appears not 8139 is because my lan card chipset is sc92031.If anyone has this output plz enter this thread.
