I have updated the kernel once.
I'm using the 2.4.27-3-586tsc and I think that is the newest one of
the "classic pentium" kernels. There seems to be no 2.6 kernel marked
with 586tsc (classic pentium) in the end.

The card is 10Mbit/s. The connection works fine. I have only
been using it with a 1Mbit/s ADSL internet connection (bridged).
