Networking :: Intel EtherExpress Pro10+ support?

I'm a DSL newbie looking for tips on how to support this network card model PCLA8220B. At exit, the console warns: 'no support enc'.  sys stat see this card as: <6> isapnp card 'intel pro/10+'.  sudo pump -s gives 'operation failed'.  Pinging the gateway gives 'operation failed'.  Perhaps somebody can point me to more resources about how linus drivers work or a list of network cards DSL supports or example driver code or a different forum, or...?  tia.
Here's a start, for those with similar ethernet card driver needs...

For direct Intel support...
