I have a SC-SATG11 in a 164lx. This board has
RealTek 8169S Gigabit Ethernet
Silicon Image 3512 2 SATA ports
When I added the board, the SRM firmware got very confused. :-(
To this day the Ethernet is unusable. I still need to try updating
the SRM firmware to the latest bits.
The SiI3512 works fine. The max throughput is "only" about 37 MB/s with
one drive, 40 MB/s with both drives, but no problems.
At the time, this was the only Ethernet/SATA combo board I could find.
(maybe it still is?)
Does anyone else have a SC-SATG11 in an Alpha? Or a RealTek 8169S
on a different board in a Alpha?
