A while back I posted a message saying I had gotten the IBM EtherJet Modem/Ethernet card working by adding the ident string to the /etc/pcmcia/config file. This has been working fine, but since I move around a lot, I have been using scripts after boot-up to up the interface and add the default route.
I recently started using the scheme support, which works great, except that I have to bounce eth0 to get things working. After booting, the ifconfig output looks normal, as does the route table. I can't ping anything. There are 0 errors in /var/log/messages, and the test_network in debug-tools reports nothing abnormal, except that the default gateway cannot be pinged. Again, after a 'ifconfig eth0 down up' everything works flawlessly.
I'm stumped, any ideas on what I should be looking at?
IBM ThinkPad 600X Linux Mandrake 7.0, kernel 2.2.16, pcmcia 3.1.17.
