Question Trust Netlink Combi don't respond to ping 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Jan 06
From: A. Bosio torello

I'm using an Acer Travelmate 512T, with debian slink,
Linux 2.2.13, pcmcia-cs 3.1.8.

The card is a Trust Netlink Combi, and it is recognized
as NE2000 Compatible.

This is the output of "ifconfig eth0":

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:80:C8:8B:5C:9E  
          inet addr:192.168.1.3  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x300

and this is the output of "netstat -r":
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
localnet        *               255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0

If I do a ping from the Acer to another host, or from another
host to the Acer, noone respond.

This is the output of "tcpdump -i eth0" on the Acer, doing
a ping from the Acer to another host in the net (mu is
the Acer Travelmate, yang is the other computer).

11:07:35.711389 mu.change.fake > yang.change.fake: icmp: echo request
11:07:36.703568 mu.change.fake > yang.change.fake: icmp: echo request
11:07:40.703457 arp who-has yang.change.fake tell mu.change.fake
11:07:41.703456 arp who-has yang.change.fake tell mu.change.fake
11:07:42.703449 arp who-has yang.change.fake tell mu.change.fake
11:07:43.703448 arp who-has yang.change.fake tell mu.change.fake

And so on.
This is the output for a tcpdump on the Acer for a ping from an host in the net to the Acer:
11:06:54.933617 arp who-has mu.change.fake tell yang.change.fake
11:06:54.933719 arp reply mu.change.fake is-at 0:80:c8:8b:5c:9e
11:06:55.933600 arp who-has mu.change.fake tell yang.change.fake
11:06:55.933667 arp reply mu.change.fake is-at 0:80:c8:8b:5c:9e
11:06:56.933594 arp who-has mu.change.fake tell yang.change.fake
11:06:56.933640 arp reply mu.change.fake is-at 0:80:c8:8b:5c:9e

And this is the output for the same ping on the other host:
12:06:37.406405 arp who-has mu tell yang
12:06:38.400825 arp who-has mu tell yang
12:06:39.400781 arp who-has mu tell yang


Another thing: the "collisions" led of the Trust Netlink Combi blinks a lot...

So the problem is: am I an idiot on configuring this network card or does the card have some problems?

Thanks.
