Re: having problems with D-link DFE-580tx quad card on obsd 3.4 i386
Two differents status on DFE-580TX (not working for Neal and working for
Carlos) . I need a quad NIC and unfortunatly can't afford 400$+ Intel
quad. Should I look for used DFE-570TX (Tulip) on ebay?
What do you think? Do you have any update Neal?
