Hi,

I have lock up problems with my 3Com card. I am using linux 2.2.10 and Pcmcia 3.1.4. The above card gets detected correctly as 'cardctl ident' shows:

---

Socket 0:
  product info: "3Com Corporation", "3CCFE575CT", "LAN Cardbus Card", "004"
  manfid: 0x0101, 0x5257
  function: 6 (network)

However, when I start my system I get messages like the following

Usually, waiting 2 minutes resolves the problem. After that time the card just works fine. Does anybody have any clue about that?
