Perhaps that's true of the DFE-530TX. The DFE-530TX+, which we
have, is based on the RealTek chipset. From /proc/pci on the
Bus 0, device 7, function 0:
Ethernet controller: Realtek 8139 (rev 16).
Medium devsel. Fast back-to-back capable. IRQ 10. Master
Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=32.Max Lat=64.
I/O at 0xe800 [0xe801].
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xfedffe00 [0xfedffe00].
Our Card (DFE-530TX+ -- you can even see ``RTL8139A'' on the chip!)
Your Card (DFE-530TX -- larger, more chips)
