I'm looking for an Ethernet board for an IBM-PC compatible
running Interactive 386/ix. Which is the best board for high
performance (with Unix driver availabe)? My only experience is
with the WD 8003E. I would assume that there are better cards.
Is anyone running Western Digital's 16 bit Ethernet card?
Interactive does not have a driver for this board, but Western
Digital has a driver on their bbs. Anyone tried it?
I've been trying to get a WD 8003S Starlan card working with my
employers network. It drops most of the packets. The thruput
is so low that a 300 baud serial line is faster. All the other
equipment on the network is from Hewlett Packard. Is there a known
problem with mixing Western Digital and Hewlett Packard?
