Greetings,

System:	Acer Extensa 710TE 
PCcard:	D-Link DFE-650
[Setup:	Works without a hitch under Win98]

Driver:	cardctl version 3.1.19

No changes to /etc/pcmcia or other startup scripts.

This is the *correct* identity.
But no access to the network (ping <server>).

Cardinfo gives a warning; then all fields are blank:

bash-2.03# cardinfo
Card Services release does not match!       

Resetting the card controller:

bash-2.03# cardctl suspend
bash-2.03# cardctl reset

	... generates these /var/log/messages:

Aug 22 11:37:16 wcra cardmgr[80]: executing: './network suspend eth0'
Aug 22 11:37:32 wcra cardmgr[80]: shutting down socket 1

Aug 22 11:37:33 wcra cardmgr[80]: executing: './network start eth0'

So it seems the 'KTI ETHER-C-16' driver is installed, 
but cardctl still thinks its the 'D-Link':

bash-2.03# cardctl ident
Socket 0:

  function: 6 (network)


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
