Question Gateway Solo 9300 internal 3c556 (???) not supported 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues

My network card (reported as "3Com 10/100 Mini PCI Ethernet Adapter" in windows) seems to be a combo ethernet/modem card that uses the 3c556 chipset. I looked in the driver installation script and I found:

3CNUMBER = "3C556"
GROUP_NAME = "3Com 10/100 Mini PCI Ethernet Adapter"
NetRuleHardwareType = "elpc556 elpc556Adapter"

There is a windows diagnostics program that can give a dump of EPROM and other stuff, and linux detects it as 3com unknown device in /proc/pci

There seems to be a driver for a combo 3c556 pcmcia card, but this a PCI device integrated into the laptop. Is there any way that driver could work, or be modified to work ?

Does anyone else know a solution for this type of device ? I would be happy to try out different drivers.
