Question 3CCFEM656BT doesn't work with 3.1.15 

Forum: PCMCIA Multifunction Card Issues
Date: 2000, May 18
From: Michael Barton mgbarton

Ok, so I install the latest stable release of pcmcia
(3.1.15), and tried to use it with the 3Com 10/100 LAN+56K
Modem (3CCFEM656BT).  I'm only interested in the LAN part.

As Linux comes up, I see the pcmcia driver load, I get two
high beeps, and the two LEDs on the dongle turn on.  At this
point under Win98, one turns off, the remaining one
indicating the speed (10 or 100Mbs).  Instead, both lights
remain on, and my 10-BaseT hub shows no carrier from the card.

The message log looks like this:

Note that there is not 'completed' message for the starting of eth0.

I can run the X11 based Network Configurator, and under
interfaces, eth0 shows as inactive.  Sometimes I
can 'Activate' the interface, and the card finishes
initializing (one light turns off, the hub says it sees a
carrier, and I can converse with the LAN).  Other times, both
lights go off, with the 100 light blinking occasionally (3-5
seconds between each). Sometimes I can't get this far - The
card enters the 'both lights off, with the 100 blinking
occasionally' as soon as pcmcia is initialized during boot.

If I run 'sh -x /etc/pcmcia/network start eth0', the log
looks like this:

Unplugging and re-plugging the card yeilds the same set of 
results.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Michael
