Add-on pci-express GigE card compatibility

Hi all-

I just wanted to report that a PCI-express card with the Agere ET131x
chipset (StarTech ST1000BTPEX from Newegg) doesn’t seem to work (as
eth1)
with the USRP2, but an Intel-based card with the 82572EI chipset does.
Maybe there is some option during compilation of the Agere kernel driver
that I didn’t see, but with the default “make” compilation the
find_usrps
command failed on the Agere. I’m using a 10099 svn version of GnuRadio
and the default firmware that came with the USRP2, purchased about 3
weeks
ago.

thanks,
eric

Thanks for the report. If anybody else has success or problem reports,
please send them in. I will be trying to obtain similar cards in order
to figure out what is going on.

I have had a lot of success with the Intel chipsets which use the e1000
or e1000e drivers, as well as Marvell using the sky2 kernel module.
