I found out what my problem was though a helpful post in the comp.os.linux.portables newsgroup. The problem turned out to be that my 10/100 hub is actually a 10Mbs hub and a 100Mbs hub that are bridged together so that they effectively segment my network based upon the highest speed a card is capabale of. I have another 10/100mbs 3com card in my network and allowing it to connect at 100mbs to the hub instead of forcing it to 10 mbs I can now see all traffic going to that card. My question now is how do I force the 3c575 to connect at 10mbs? I have tried passing it the media_select option used with the 3c59x module for my other card, but it doesn't seem to work. I've looked through the FAQ and the message boards but this doesn't seem to be covered anywhere. I am sure that I must be passing the wrong option or pasing the option wrong. I've tried passing the option in conf.modules,/etc/pcmcia/conf , and /etc/pcmcia/config.opts. The card just always selects 100Mb operation. Any help is greatly appreaciated.
