The TP-Link Gigabit network card TG-3269 uses the PCI-Bus and has the PCI-ID 10ec:8169. The card is recognized by the Linux kernel (Ubuntu 10.4, Linux kernel 2.6.38) in the following way:
05:01.0 Ethernet controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet [10ec:8169] (rev 10) Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet [10ec:8169] Kernel driver in use: r8169
The card is equipped with the Realtek chipset RTL-8169 which is supported by the kernel module r8169. The driver is loaded automatically:
r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded alloc irq_desc for 22 on node -1 alloc kstat_irqs on node -1 r8169 0000:05:01.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 22 (level, low) -> IRQ 22 r8169 0000:05:01.0: no PCI Express capability eth1: RTL8169sb/8110sb at 0xf8098000, 11:22:33:44:55:66, XID 10000000 IRQ 22
The following details of the TG-3269 are supported by Linux:
