1.install the DFE-530TX+ network adapter in MAC OSX

Step 1 Power down the computer and disconnect the power cable.

Step 2 Remove the left side panel of the case.

Step 3 Insert the DFE-530TX+ into an available PCI slot and tighten the screw until the DFE-530TX+ is securely in place.

Step 4 Replace the side panel and turn computer on.

Step 5 Insert the DFE-530TX+ installation CD into the CD-ROM drive.

Step 6 Open the CD-ROM icon on the desktop that appears displaying DFE-530TX+ just below the icon.

Step 7 Open the Macintosh folder.

Step 8 Open the DFE-530TX+ driver for MAC OS.

Step 9 Open the installer program.

Step 10 Click on install to complete the installation process.

2.install the DFE-530TX+ network adapter in Linux Red Hat

Note: New Distributions of Linux support this card with built-in drivers and near auto-installation.

Follow these instructions to install the DFE-530TX+ Rev. D1 and D2 in Red Hat 6.x.

The Readme.txt file has excellent instructions for more advanced users in Red Hat 6.x and up.

For novice users, the following step-by-step instructions should suffice, assuming the floppy is mounted.

$ cd floppy
$ cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
$ cd /root
$ gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`


$ insmod rtl8139.o

At this point the drivers have been installed and inserted. Configure the network properties of the card according to your current network settings.

For Red Hat 7.0 the install is a little trickier because of a known issue with the default install of the OS.

The workaround is as follows:

First, you must change the following file: /usr/include/linux/modversions.h Using any text editor such as PICO or vi, insert the following line into this file:

#include linux/modsetver.h

Then continue with the compilation and install:

cd floppy
cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
cd /root
gcc -I /usr/src/linux/include -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`


insmod rtl8139.o

      Folks at D-link, I’m having the same frustration as another customer ( dated 2/7/2012 ) . The software CD DOES NOT have any files related to Macintosh. All files are Windows related.

      My Apple computer will not recognize the new card ( purchased from Wal*Mart.com ).

      What do you recommend ?
