Thread: 8111C NIC revision on EP45-*




  1. #1

    Default 8111C NIC revision on EP45-*

    Hi,

    I looked at Linux (CentOS 5.2) Changelog and noticed native support for the Realtek 8111C NIC. However, the native driver does work only with rev 01 chip, and for rev 02 one has to compile driver separately from Realtek, which is always a hassle. Thus, the obvious question is, which revision of 8111C is used by Gigabyte on the EP45-boards, particularly in GA-EP45-DS5?

    Thanks, I sort of expected it to be so.
