Question Surecom PCMCIA Network Adapter 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 27
From: Roman Seidl <>

I have a Surecom Network Apdapter (EP-427X). There are some Linux Files on the driver disk but the readme file says the following:

 Note: this driver for linux 2.0.30

 1. copy driver to /ep427x
    # mcopy a:/* /ep427x

 2. download pcmcia-cs-3.0.x.tar.gz from
    in the /pub/pcmcia directory
    readme PCMCIA-HOWTO file & install it 

 3. add the following lines into /etc/pcmcia/config
    card "SURECOM EP-427X 100/10M PCMCIA Adapter"
    version "PCMCIA", "100BASE"
    bind "pcnet_cs"

 4.# cd /ep427x
   # chmod +x gen1 gen2

 5.# gen1
   # gen2

 6.# reboot

------------- no longer publishes the pcmcia package and the kernel version iŽd like to use is 2.2.14

Do I just have to add the definitions to a newer kernel version or do i have to use some of the "patches" that might be included with the driver disk? are pcnet_cs.c and 8390.c just standard driver source?

there is some more files included with the driver disk:

Config: ---------

# config.sample 1.87 1999/02/16 01:33:35 (David Hinds)

# config.opts is now included at the very end

# Device driver definitions

  class "network" module "3c589_cs"
