'[PIC] RTL8009 Ethernet'

Okay, I tried to take this OT, but I guess it's too relevant.  However
it's not about the 877 so at least the subject changes.

I was reminded of two other things...

>See if you can get it configured for 0x300, IRQ 3 or 5
>and see if it works, I think the ne2k driver should work.

You might have to (or be able to) bring the computer up under DOS
and run a program that configures or reloads the card.  Then
restart with the power on and the ne driver will be happy
with it.   I used to have to do this with my laptop to get
the card off of interrupt the mouse was using.  Setup programs
for the MS side are all over the Web.

>'dmesg|less'. All as root.

There is a not-well-advertisted switch to ifconfig, it's -a and it
will show you your ethernet cards whether they are "up" or not.
They still have to have the driver running, though, something
which you also want to use lsmod (list-modules) to check.  And
you said it fails so we already know the result of that.

BTW, isn't it 'ifconfig eth0 x.x.x.x up' ?

up is implied if the line looks as above. Works on my systems at least.

if the card is not found (some messages in dmesg) then things look bad.

However at $7.50 to $9 a card (new) I would not lose too much sleep over
it. The father of ne is xxx8390 and there is a module called 8390.o that
implements this. It's the part that really talks to the chip. xxx8390 was
the original NE chip I think.

I missed the original post...

Not that I'm trying to start another flame war, but I know for a fact that
FreeBSD has a driver for the NE2000 and it works just fine. I used one for
several years in an old 486 that was given a second life as a server. Go here
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/4.6R/hardware-i386.html#ETHERNET and scroll down
till you see it.

This was the original post. The problem is, that the RTL8009 is not
supported directly.
