About 3com 3c509B Driver:

This is the driver package for the 3com 3C509b card.

You get the complete source code and the compiled driver for the Intel-BeOS R4.

To install this package, just double click on the file "install.sh", and then you will
be guided through the installation. You can also install the driver manually.

If you want to install it manually, follow these steps:

1. Copy the file 3C509 into the folder /boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin.

-> cp 3c509/x86.obj/3c509 ~/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/3c509

2. Make a link to the file /boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/net/3c509

-> ln -s ~/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/3c509 ~/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/net/3c509

Then the driver should start and the "file" /dev/net/3c509 should appear.

Then you can configure the Network Preferences.

Start preferences -> Network.
Select the 3Com Etherlink II/16 (ISA) add-on.
Enter all required TCPIP information (IP address, DNS, etc.), then save the network.
Edit the file /boot/home/config/settings/network and change the values
correct values. In the archive there is a "network" text file included which
works for me; you can see which values should be there. If necessary, turn
off the Plug and Play feature of your 3C509.
Restart the network, and then save the network configuration.

This directory contains a copy of the Linux ec9xx driver
for the 3Com 3C905 series of cards. You can cd to the
ec9xx directory, type make and get a driver. If you fix
bugs or make the driver better, please let devsupport@be.com
know about it!

The original source is pretty much unmodified but it uses
a wrapper library that emulates the functions called by the
Linux ethernet drivers. The library is complete enough to
compile this driver but may not be sufficient for other
