Question problem with 3cxfe575ct on ibm thinkpad 760xl 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 03
From: Thomas v. Massenbach tvm

I have an IBM Thinkpad 760XL with a 3com 3cxfe575ct card. Using SuSE Linux 4.6 implementing the card is no problems. The card works from start up.

But. When trying to send / receive a large data stream (e.g. ftp some larger file) the card stops sending data and is usable only after a crad reset.

messages from /var/log messages is:

and so on.

Looks like a lost interrupt.

Has anyone an idea.

Thanks a lot!
