Question Problems with 3CCFE575BT and an Acer Travelmate 332T 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Date: 1999, Dec 10
From: Henning Niss hniss

Hello folks

I have some problems with my Acer TravelMate 332T and my
3Com net card (3CCFE575BT, CardBus). I am running RedHat
Linux 6.1 with kernel 2.2.13 and I recently installed PCMCIA
version 3.1.5. I am trying to get DHCP to work with the card.

Let me start by saying that my setup works with another net
adapter (a 3Com 589, I think). 

Apparently PCMCIA detects the problematic card alright, and
a number of things seems fine (see the cutout of
/var/log/messages below). Also Donald Beckers MII-diagnostics
program reports that the link is up, and everything seems
fine. Note the status code (2809), though.

Now when DHCP fires up, after (quite) some time, the
configuration information is gotten from the server,
and my card is assigned seemingly fine IP parameters.
However, that is as far as I get. It is not possible to
connect to other machines (I get a ``no route to host''
error), and ping'ing the gateway gets no packages through
(it reports that there is no response on the assigned
interrupt).

I hope one of you guys can help!
