I'm getting a used Toshiba notebook (T2110CS), and I would like to pick
up an ethernet adapter for it.
First, does anyone have any warnings for me with this laptop?
Second, what's a good and cheap PCMCIA card for 10/100 ethernet?
Netgear appears to have one coming out at the end of the month.
I've been pretty happy with the (DEC-based) PCI cards I've gotten
from them, but I don't know anything about this one. Intel has an
etherexpress pro for under $100. Does anyone know how similar
these cards might be to their PCI brethren? It appears that the
only PCMCIA cards that are currently supported are the 3Com, SMC,
I'd like to be able to put this machine on both 10baseT and 100baseT
I've got another machine that I can compile on, and I've got the time
to try and add support for a new card if it's a matter of the pcmcia
glue (I don't have time to write a completely new driver).
