2. Hardware requirements

Make sure that you have a Token Ring card that is supported from the list below. Many PCI,ISA and even the odd MCA cards are now supported. Check http://www.linuxtr.net for the latest information.

Cards that are reported to work:

3COM

IBM

Olicom

Madge

SysKonnect

SMC

Intel

Cards that may cause problems:

Token-Ring Network 16/4 Adapter II. This adapter will NOT work. Do not confuse this card with the IBM Token Ring adapter II (4mbit) which does. It is a DMA/Busmaster adapter for ISA.

3Com TokenLink Velocity ISA. You may or may not get this one to work. I have had reports of people running it without problems, and others who get errors left and right.
