I also need to do some testing on the reliability of the included module (along with this one). The device that is using this module will need to be fairly stable...after doing some research through google I'm not too confident in the reliability of the module for this NIC (both the kernel and the VIA versions). It looks like I should have researched the NIC before purchasing this board....though I never had problems with VIA's Rhine family and I need other features that are included such as hdmi and digital I/O.

Hi folks,
There is one favor I ask in regards to submitted extensions.  If an extension has been submitted and the submitter then decides that it should not be posted, please send a response to the same message thread on the tcesubmit gmail account so we know not to process it.  The person processing the extension and the person(s) involved in a forum or IRC discussion about the extension may or may not be one and the same.  Though I myself try to keep up with what is going on in the forum and IRC as best I can, it is hard to spot every discussion.  Once an extension is submitted, keeping the tcesubmit account informed of any change in status of the submitted extension will greatly facilitate timely processing.

I know I am excited to see new extensions, please keep sending them our way.  Thank you robc and  the others who have submitted already as well as those who will in the future.  We are looking forward to the extension collection growing with your help.
