D-Link DFE-570TX

Author:mike - Sat May 5 16:11:26 2007

This is a 4 Port NIC Card from D-Link, the systems sees it as a DEC-21152(But on
the board/chip itself it says Intel 21152) this is in fact a PCI Bridge which 
bridges to 4 PCI Nic's which again Linux believe is a DEC-21143TX Chip (and on the
board/chips it says Intel 21143TX)

At first we tried the "tulip" driver which did'nt work, we then concluded that we 
needed to find a driver for the PCI Bridge before we could engange the NIC Chips 
on the board, out of desperation we tried first modprobe pci_hotplug and the 
followed by modprobe tulip which then resultet in four available eth devices.
