PCI Card

This is a single port ADSL2+ Modem on a PCI card. It is seen by the host system as a Realtek 10/100 Network Port (RTL8100CL) and is configurable via a web interface or Telnet.


ipv6 is not supported.

linitx mentions:

PCI or LAN Interface - Set via onboard jumpers 

but modifying jumpers is not sufficient: in order to enable the LAN interface instead of the PCI interface, an external power source must be used with the 6 pins header located near connector pin out. Because cable is not provided (like a 4 pins molex <-> 6 pins) you will not be able to use the RJ45 interface !

Using PCI interface

Once card added, it appears like a Realtek 8139 pci card:

$ lspci
06:03.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

$ dmesg
[    1.340686] 8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.28
[    1.340777]   alloc irq_desc for 16 on node -1
[    1.340783]   alloc kstat_irqs on node -1
[    1.340798] 8139too 0000:06:03.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
[    1.342475] eth1: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xffffc90010a2ec00, 00:05:b4:09:ee:6a, IRQ 16

There is a Linux 2.4.31 embedded on the pci card. After configuring the new ethernet card, you can access to this system using ip.


On Debian you can edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules in order to rename "ethX":

# PCI device 0x10ec:0x8139 (8139too)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:05:b4:09:ee:6a", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="wan"

Add ip:

ip a add dev wan

Set interface up:

ip link set up dev wan

Now you can access to the interface configuration using:

If card is inserted on a PC which haven't X configured (ie an headless host)

                                   ---------------------------------------                   ------------------------------------

On the headless host:

sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o wan -j SNAT --to-source eth0 --random -m comment --comment "LAN->WLAN"

# Forward
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o wan -j ACCEPT -m comment --comment "LAN->WLAN"
iptables -t filter -A FORWARD -i wan -o eth0 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT -m comment --comment "LAN->WLAN"

On the other host:

ip a add dev eth0
ip r add default via

Other host is now able to access to (default password is `admin`)

Enable telnet access

telnet daemon can be enabled in "NAT Configuration" -> "Servers settings"

Now you can access to Linux embedded on the PCI card using telnet:

$ telnet
