For a Linux driver package supporting the Micrel KSZ8841 Ethernet controller, please refer to www.micrel.com/_PDF/Ethernet/sw_designkit/8841P/ks884x-linux-20090601.bz2. We highly recommend a kernel newer than 2.6.32.
Windows Ethernet driver for F211/F302 (Micrel KSZ8841 MAC) with option to disable hardware checksumming
For a QNX 6.3.0SP3 and QNX 6.3.2 driver package supporting the Micrel KSZ8841 Ethernet controller, please refer to the latest QNX network driver update: www.qnx.com/download/feature.html?programid=17094. The devn-micrel8841.so driver integrated there supports the F211 Ethernet controller.
Starting from QNX 6.4 this driver is directly included in the distribution.
