What VIA NIC series would cover most (all) of the current VIA NICs out in the wild?

Most of the VIA systems I've seen use the VIA VT6102 Rhine II for 10/100, or the Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5705 for gigabit ethernet. The choice of controller for gigabit ethernet might be more MSI than VIA... guess we'll have to wait for more responses on this.

Yeah, a "Rhine II£ driver would probably be the best first port of call since it supports the largest number of VIA (and other manufacturers) chips.

That's my box too.

*giddy dancing*

So I don't have any money (poor student, married, living off of student loans and hope) - is there something else that I can use as a donation to such a bounty? Like maybe a Hush-PC Mini-ITX case? (the motherboard blew up and I bought a whole new box with new case). Or, help with coding? (just give me specific "assignments" or "research projects" for the chipset and I'll see what I can do). Old harrdrives?

Perhaps if you help spread the word that the VIA Rhine II bounty is now open, we would get more visits and donations. Seems folks do no realize Rhine II is VIA's 10/100 NIC.

Looks like we are getting close on having this bounty complete by Kalamatee.

Current state of play:

The driver is pretty much complete however as yet theres still something not quite right ..

It will load and run (pretty stable so far - hasnt crashed here yet) - and you can ping IP and DNS hosts, so packet's are being sent recieved/enough for dns resolution to occur (tested with hosts on my local net aswell as to access internet sites) ..

.. however at the moment App's such as AiRcOS (my IRC client), or Neils FTP port, time out trying to connect - so something is amiss in the packet handling which i dont have time to try and sniff out atm.

perhaps with a decent packet sniffing setup someone might be able to shed some light onto what is going wrong, but just now im clueless ..

if someone with such a setup would post some findings here id be happy to investigate further =)
