 Hi Dave-

The card is marked:

   Linksys EtherFast 10/100 PC Card
   model: PCMPC100

startup message from syslog:

  NE2000 Compatable: io 0x300, irq 3 ....

its loading the 8390.o module, so its probably another (klunky 'ol) ne2000 clone.

hmmm, good thought. When I startup tcpdump, I don't see the usual "eth0: Promiscuous mode enabled" message.... Apparently the promisc request isn't getting all the way through the driver-

 If it helps, here's some more info:

      kernel: 2.2.14 (unpatched, from master sources)

 Here is slightly filtered syslog:

 I appreciate any ideas or info-
