Subject: Re: Ethernet Card recommendation
I had a entire class room with D-Link DFE-530TX, based on VIA-Rhine chipset, two
years ago and what happened was they forget their MAC address!!!!
i.e., the machines stop responding and when I went to the room to see what was wrong,
the ifconfig command returned the mac like 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00!!!!!
amazing!!!! isn't it?
I just don't ever used again D-Links!!!!
