Review of Linux Compatibility

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 [0200]: 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:

 product: RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet
 vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
 physical id: 2
 bus info: pci@0000:04:02.0
 version: 10
 size: 1Gbit/s
 capacity: 1Gbit/s
 width: 32 bits
 clock: 66MHz
 capabilities: pm bus_master cap_list rom ethernet physical tp mii 10bt 10bt-fd 100bt 100bt-fd
                   1000bt 1000bt-fd autonegotiation

This card can also be used several time in on mainboard and hence is ideal for using it in a firewall.

One response to “TP-Link TG-3269 Network Card 1000 MBit PCI”

  • Alex Murphy says:

    I bought two of these cards for old PCs, one using W7 and the other FreeNas 9.1.1. The cards were accepted by both, as Gigabit NICs out of the box, giving me a real boost on file transfer speeds to the FreeNas.
    Presently, I am unable to use the WOL feature I had been using with the built in 10/100 Mb/s on the FreeNas which prevents me from awarding 5 stars. However, on the W7 computer I was able to update the NIC driver from the supplied CD and examination of the “Driver-Properties-Advanced” in W7 reveals that the TG-3269 does suppport WOL incl “Magic Packet” under W7 with the new driver. Pity about the Linux support.
