Sad MELCO LPC3-TX "eth0: interrupt(s) dropped!" 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Jul 23
From: Gary Chan gchan1

The problem of "eth0: interrupt(s) dropped!" cannot be solved.
I have already tried all the possible solution.
I tried all "irq" and used "do_scan=0" parameters.

I love LINUX and don't want to use MS-Window any more.
PLease help me.
Many thanks.

Hardware:
LAN Card: Buffalo MELCO LPC3-TX PCMCIA NIC 10/100.
Laptop  : NEC VERSA NOTE

The following is syslog dump.

This card is not supported.  It uses a chipset that is not fully
NE2000 compatible.

Ok Will it be supported in the near future?

Look forward your good new.

Best regards,

That's the short answer.  It is not a simple problem.
