Hi all, do anyone know how to enable this network card in VL59? It doesn't work for my DELL Optiplex 320.

Ok. I fix but it will be very slow to get the IP from my DHCP server. Do anyone know this cause I plan to setup this as a file server. but then everytime I need to login and type dhcpdc to get the IP from the DHCP server.....

I have put dhcpcd -t 30 to /etc/rc.d/rc.local but for broadcom card it doesn't work. I still need to login and type dhcpcd to get the IP.
But if I use another DLINK card it work fine...any idea?

Compile a newer kernel would be my guess. Your mentioning that
a D-Link card works points to the kernel module.
