    yes, its the DG945GCLF board. I have tried many others from jetway to msi and I have yet to find a board that works. This intel board is the only one ive found that works well on a consistent basis.

    M--

    I'm currently running a (real) NIC in the solitary PCI slot. That leaves me looking for a place to connect a second NIC.

    Until the major distros catch up with this board, my options would seem to be limited. From my experience in the past, given the choice between a USB-Ethernet NIC and food poisoning, I'd have to seriously consider the food poisoning...

    Jim--

    Thanks for the confirmation; I appreciate it. I think the D510MO board is going to be very popular for appliances once the distros support it... More horsepower for less power, heat, and $$ -- as long as you're not doing fancy video, it looks good.

    I welcome suggestions -- I'm trying to dig up an extra D945GCLF2D board to use in the interim.

    thank you for helping us out! (I've backed up to a D945GCLF2D board)

    Did you follow the Step 3 to add 2 lines as the followings to the file at "/etc/apt/sources.list"?

    I believe I did -- but I scrounged a D945GCLF board and reloaded the hard disk from scratch. That box is up and running. I'll revisit the D510MO board in a few months!

    Thank you for your work supporting this board with the old(er) kernel.

    The 7.2 Beta release recognizes the onboard NIC on the D510MO board. I'm running with it now, and the cheezy Realtek NIC. I picked up an Intel NIC today, but due to a brain fart, didn't get one with a short bracket. Also have an Intel dual-port on the way.

    After install, I started it up in video safe mode, so I don't know if all the kinks have been worked out of that part of things.

    I like the changes in 7.2 Beta -- the small wording changes make sense. And it works on the mobo I wanted to run it on!

    We'll see how it flies!

    bob in still rainy silicon valley -- it was crystal clear yesterday, though!

    That is the way I resolve any Realtek problems. I disable the onboard NIC and install a dual-port Intel server NIC - problem solved. I have used it on both Atom and Intel dual-core motherboards with success.

    This has been an excellent Intel board for me:

    Just spotted a new Zotac that is ~$30 less expensive than the Intel. Doesn't specify the onboard LAN manufacturer and uses PCI-e expansion slot instead of PCI.
