Updated Realtek 8139 driver
September 11, 2005 by Chuck McKinnis
Veit Kannegieser has released an update to the OS/2 NDIS driver for Realtek 8139/8130/810x and compatibles.
Compatibility with early 8139 chip versions. The meaning of the power management enable setting has changed. This caused the driver to print a good connection message, but when the card was to be used (DHCP client), the card did not send/receive packets.
The early chip also uses less I/O address space - 128 instead of 256 bytes.
This driver takes advantage of the PCIBUS.SNP replacement: It tries to create the Reseource Manager entry for the card below the actual PCI_Bus_x, for example x=2 on newer machines.
Also attaches "PCI DevFunc" Adjunct.
Obsoleted IOBase configuration option, use PCIConf package instead.
If you use the paramter with older version, revisit the driver configuration -- see "Installation" paragraph.
Registered users can download this update now.
