A. Network Interface Cards

In this section you will find a (for now) very incomplete list of NIC's which are known to work or known to cause problem. For I neither have the money to buy a lot of different NIC's, nor I have any connections to hardware vendors, I depend on your feedback to keep the list accurate. So feel free to mail about success or failure to Uwe Böhme.
