None SocketCom ES-1000 Ethernet/RS-232 card

Date: 2000, May 22
From: Brian Candler <b.candler@pobox.com>

Hello,

I've just got a SocketCom ES-1000 (aka E-I/O) combo ethernet and RS-232 card: http://www.socketcom.com/eiomp.htm

Unfortunately, I can't get the ethernet part to work, although the serial part is fine. I have added the following to /etc/pcmcia/config:

 card "SocketCom ES-1000 Ethernet/RS-232"
   manfid 0x0104, 0x000a
   bind "pcnet_cs", "serial_cs"

Now the card is recognised and I get two high beeps. It even successfully reads the MAC address from the card. However, when I try to ping something, the ARP packets come out as all-ones - see below.

My machine is a Sony Vaio PCG-C1F, running the latest RedHat kernel package (2.2.14-12). A 3com 3c562 works fine in this machine.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Brian Candler.

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
