I have several PCI network cards, so can anyone tell me which can be used with an Amiga
I know these can be used
RTL8139C 07134SX 0498 TAIWAN
and as I dont have a big box Amiga will put on the market place soon
MPX EN5038 95040T1 919E
MPX EN50388 07517T1 032B
COMPAQ NETELLIGENT (Card name) INTEL 5882558B L907EB05 (Chip)
DIGITAL 21041-PB 21-40758 (C) DEC 1996 DC104F A9735 JL1758D
I have copied the details from what I hope is the right chip

If Im not mistaken there's an rtl8139 openpci driver. Also, I think most ne2k compatible cards should be ok (which would include rtl8029).

I have no idea. I my self am still using a string with my Amiga tied to one end, and a can to the other.

Supported Network cards will depand on what hardware and OS you have for example the RTL8139 is supported by the Mediator and OS3.x but not OS4.x, the latter only supports RTL8029 based PCI cards.
So the best thing is to let us know what your setup is.
Oh I see you don't have a Big Box Amiga - in that case I suggest you check out the compatibility listings of the PCI Busboard's
I couldn't find the list for the Prometheus, but I'm sure with a bit of Googling you'll find it!

Sorry should have made it clear
I don't want to use them, I am clearing out some old stuff and have about 50 assorted network cards - the type listed
I will post the Rtl cards on the Market Place later

Sell them as what they are... PCI NIC Cards.
Amiga usage depends on several things as mentioned above. Putting Amiga compatible in your ad in order to charge more for them isn't going to fool anyone.

I wasn't trying to charge more
and the RTL809AS ones are EXACTLY the same ones Amigakit are selling

Sorry, it's a common tactic on ebay.
You can cross reference your cards here for Mediator owners:
