Question 3c574 prob, no h/w address 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Aug 08
From: Joerg Schmitz-Linneweber jsl123

I'm trying to use a (no name/oem brand) "Allnet ALL0142+" Fast Ethernet adapter. I tried several modules and decided that the 3c574_cs worked best :-) Indeed it seems to find some config info in the card but no hardware address! I even treied to set it via ifconfig (like someone on the list did) but with no result. To give somemore info: I tried different io ranges and irq's (io > 0x300, io > 0x400, irq=5,9,10). Appended is a log with some kernel info (and debug info from 3c574_cs, this is the reason why cardmgr claims its not the right version). Beside of the pcmcia tools, i used the latest (low-level) drivers. Perhaps I'm only missing a very small thing? BTW: I had to arrange /etc/pcmcia/config and config.opts of course to let cardmgr reco. the card. Did any one know which manufac. uses these id's: 0xffff, 0x021b? BTW2: The last error messages in the log are the results from trying to ping someone on the net. I know it's hard to use a network adapter with a MAC of all zeros but why not give it a try? ;-)

Thanks in advance,
  Joerg
