Attansic L2 100Mbit Ethernet Adapter on Debian Lenny

floyd - Sat 22 November 2008 - network, debian, hardware

It appears Attansic was recently bought by Atheros. However, getting it to work on GNU/Debian Lenny is as simple as:

apt-get install atl2-modules-2.6-686
modprobe atl2

And here it is:

root@gw # ifconfig eth1
     eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1e:8c:18:88:a6
     BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
