That is interesting to know. I was going to buy same Intex card but
Sujata Comp guy disuaded me from buying it citing problems.
I changed three cards at his place...none worked. he gave my
money back as the condition was Linux compatibility.
Got a D-Link-DFE538TX works on all Flavours with out problem.
0000:01:01.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
Nearly same chipset.
