  1. Hi,

    I have Realtek RTL8139 NIC in my PC. Can anyone let me know if it will support 802.1x authentication?

    802.1X does not depend on the NIC - there is a special piece of software on the client that does the authentication. If you have Windows 2000 or newer, then this is already included.
