None "eth0: Tx hung, 9 vs 0." from NETGEAR FA510c 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Aug 02
From: David Brooks dbrooks

I recently purchased a NETGEAR 510c network adapter. The box it was in actually advertises it as "Linux Compatible", which was a delightfull sight to behold in a mainstream retail establishment!

However, I have had been unable to get it to work. The card is detected fine, although there is no entry for it in the pcmcia configuration file, this is not a problem for it shares the same manfid as both the "UMAX250 Fast Ethernet" and the "Ambicom AMB8100 Fast Ethernet", which both also use the tulip_cb driver.

The card is detected [syslog output provided below], and then delivers the inevitable error of

"eth0: Tx hung, 9 vs. 0. "

After this, an attempt to ping a machine on the network [and this is quite strange] -DOES- suceed in at least lighting the activity lights on the hub... tcpdump run on another system demonstrates that the card is sucessfully sending out ARP requests for the desired system, but it fails to be capable of doing anything else, and after about 6 arp requests, the card then fails altogether and must be ejected+inserted to even do that much again.

And advice would be greatly appreciated. Is it possible that I just have a bad card and should exchange this one? Or should I abbandon hope of cardbus 10/100 on my laptop? [I'm certainly not about to stop running linux ;) ]

For whomever may have any assistance or advice to profer, thank you in advance for your time.
