Hi!
I have a problem when I using xPC Target 4.3 (R2010a).
How can I do when my target PC has a Ethernet card which is not in the specific list? Is there any way can use the target PC because my target PC has no more slot to inset a Ethernet card. The Ethernet card on the target PC is "PRO/100 VE Network Controller", can write a driver for the Ethernet card? if can, can you give me a example?
Thank you!

In my opinion, in a case like that, the most cost-effective way to proceed is to replace the target PC. Writing a correct ethernet driver is a challenge even for very experienced programmers.

Thank you!
If so i will think about changing a target PC or using rs232 to communication.

What kind of transmission bandwidth and latency do you require? And do you have a true serial port available on both sides or are you thinking of using a USB to serial port convertor?

Thank you!
My host PC is a laptop PC, and it has not a rs232 port. And I have used a USB to serial port convertor linking with target PC, but failed.
The good news is that my Ethernet card is surrputted by xPC Target Version 5.0 (R2011a), after I see Arnaud Miege's answer.
Thanks!

Or replace the existing Ethernet card with one that is supported, see supported Ethernet chipsets for more information. You can also get a PCI expansion slot.
