I have one here, and it's painfull.  I haven't had any success under Linux
(2.4.18, 2.5.67 kernels), it's recommended only as a 'Doze card.  The binary
drivers are provided for use with the 2.2.14 kernel (response from D-link

It's an ATM card, which can be used as an PPPoA device or PPPoE bridge
device.  The older drivers refer to it as eth0 though.

I think I'll be sending mine back to the supplier, or framing it with my
d-link 650+ as examples of jumping the driver gun :)

Hi there,
Thanks for writing to us.
As all Linux users know, all the codes are free and there is too many
modified version of Linux available on the net.
Because of this, there is no way for us to support all Linux versions. In
we do not officially release any Linux driver.
All the help we provide is on "helping and giving our best advice" basis.

The only DSL-100D driver that we have is for RedHat Linux 6.2 (Kernel
2.2.14-5.0). This covers quite a portion of the Linux versions. Please note
it is for PPPoE and RFC1483 connection types. You can download this driver
