    Hi all,

    I have installed 3 Netgear GA311 Gigabit NICs on my firewall. ZeroShell uses the

    “Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)”

    driver for these NICs. In addition, for the integrated network adapter, the driver

    “Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)”

    has been installed by ZeroShell.

    However, none of them work when connected to Gigabit Ethernet ports on a switch. They do work when connected to Fast Ethernet ports.

    Can anything be done so that the NICs work properly at Gigabit speed?

    Thanks a lot.

    I managed to get the drivers for the network adapters from the Realtek website.
    I have also downloaded binutils-2.17-i386.tar.bz2, glibc-2.8-includes-zs.tar.bz2, linux-2.6.25.17-zs-i386.tar.bz2, gcc-4.3.2-zs-i386.tar.bz2 and static-lib.tar.bz2.

    Can anyone tell me how to proceed to install these in ZeroShell so as to be able to compile the network adapter driver/module in ZeroShell ?

    Thanks for any help.

    Anyone has any idea how I can compile and install the Gigabit Ethernet drivers?
    Do I have to go through all the steps described here?

    Thanks for any help.

    Is anyone using Gigabit Ethernet network adapters with ZeroShell?
    If yes, are you successfully using the default drivers/modules installed by ZeroShell?

    Thanks for any feedback

    OK. Anyone has been successful with a Realtek chipset?

    It’s working now.
    Seems the cable was the problem!
    Thanks for all help.
