    Can you attach those drivers here or give a link to it or read the README file cos that's where the instructions are.
    And why can't u get a LAN card? It just cost about Rs. 100/200.

    i tried to install drivers using this readme file but all in vain can u figure out steps in suse by reading following:
    USB Driver for Linux Install
    Date: 2006/6/8

    1. Install RedHat 9.0 (RedHat 8.0)

    2. Login as root

    3. Check out Linux version (RedHat 8.0 -> linux-2.4.18-14, RedHat 9.0 -> linux-2.4.20-8)
    [root@CNXT root]# cd /usr/src
    [root@CNXT src]# pwd
    /usr/src
    [root@CNXT src]# ls -l
    total 12
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 25 2003 debug
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jun 17 2005 linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.2
    0-8
    drwxr-xr-x 16 root root 4096 Jun 17 2005 linux-2.4.20-8
    drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Jun 17 2005 redhat

    4. RedHat 9.0 for example
    #ln -s linux-2.4.20-8 linux
    [root@CNXT src]# ln -s linux-2.4.20-8 linux
    [root@CNXT src]# ls -l
    total 12
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 25 2003 debug
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jun 8 12:19 linux -> linux-2.4.20-8
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jun 17 2005 linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.2
    0-8
    drwxr-xr-x 16 root root 4096 Jun 17 2005 linux-2.4.20-8
    drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Jun 17 2005 redhat

    5. Copy folder ASL-25020 to /root

    6. #cd /root/ASL-25020
    #make clean
    #make all
    [root@CNXT ASL-25020]# pwd
    /root/ASL-25020
    [root@CNXT ASL-25020]# make clean
    rm -f ./src/CDCEther.o ./src/CDCEther.o *.o .depend ./VKGEther
    [root@CNXT ASL-25020]# make all
    gcc -c -O2 -Wall -Wno-missing-braces -Wstrict-prototypes -fomit-frame-pointer -
    fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -mcpu=i486 -falign-loops=2 -falig
    n-jumps=2 -falign-functions=2 -I/usr/src/linux/include -I./inc -D__KERNEL__ -DM
    ODULE -Dlinux -DDBG=0 -o src/CDCEther.o src/CDCEther.c
    ld -r -o ./VKGEther ./src/CDCEther.o

    7. Add "alias eth1 VKGEther" in file /etc/modules.conf
    #vi /etc/modules.conf
    alias eth0 pcnet32
    alias scsi_hostadapter BusLogic
    alias sound es1371
    post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1
    || :
    pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 |
    | :
    alias usb-controller usb-uhci
    alias eth1 VKGEther

    8. Edit file "ifcfg-eth1"
    #vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
    DEVICE=eth1
    BOOTPROTO=static
    BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
    IPADDR=192.168.1.3
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    NETWORK=192.168.1.0
    ONBOOT=yes

    9. Add "insmod /root/ASL-25020/VKGEther" to file rc.local
    #vi /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    insmod /root/ASL-25020/VKGEther

    10. Connect USB to device and reboot

    11. Test
    #ifconfig eth0 down
    #ping 192.168.1.2
    [root@CNXT ASL-25020]# ifconfig eth0 down
    [root@CNXT ASL-25020]# ping 192.168.1.2 -c 3

    Those drivers require 2.4.x kernel whereas all newer distros use 2.6.x kernel. So, you won't be able to connect to the net with those drivers. You will need to either use really outdated distros like Red Hat 9.0 to use those drivers. Or maybe it will work with Debian Sarge most probably.

    @eagle_y2j, Open the Terminal Window & type:

    $ lspci

    The output will be similar to this one:

    Is this wat u asked ?
    [​IMG]
    __________
    ugh! i came to know that INTEX chipsets are fake chipsets printed saying RTC8139D or even RTL8139D....The driver supplied with has to installed otherwise.. even Windows XP fails to autodetect and install it as a Realtek LAN Card...

    The Drivers supplied are written by Silan MicroElectronics Inc, China (www.silan.com.cn) so my last question will this fake LAN card will work with Suse

    It might work only if you use Kernel 2.4. Download and install that version...else it will not work...

    Currently there are no drivers supplied in official kernel for this card. IMHO return this card and buy some other card that is actually a Realtek.

    That's right. Get a RealTek ethernet card & return your present Intex LAN card.
