Question 3c574 problem: adapter failure, FIFO diagnostic register 2000 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Mar 14
From: John Opgrande johneo

I am getting errors with my 3com 3c574. I have IBM network card that runs fine, so I believe that it is the 3com card. The strangest part is that the card seems to work fine, but I get tons of errors.
 
I am running redhat 6.1 w/ kernel 2.2.14 and pcmcia 3.1.12 on a Dell Inspiron 7500. I got this error with earlier kernels and earlier versions of pcmcia.

I have tried changing the interrupt and I have tried changing the socket, neither of which worked. I have not seen this problem reported by anyone else so I am assuming this is not a normal feature of the driver.

Any help would be appriciated.




here is my message log:
