Question Wisecom PC-400 10/100 - Doesn`t work 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues

Hi to everybody,

I have a Dell Inspiron 3700 with a Wisecom PC-400 with 10/100 Ethernet.

My Linux version is 2.2.13 pcmcia version is 3.1.11

The output of "cardctl ident" is:

Socket 1:
  product info: "PCMCIA", "10/100 Ethernet Card", "", ""
  manfid: 0x8a01, 0xc1ab
  function: 6 (network)

In the startup I get this message:

 kernel: pcnet_cs: unable to read hardware net address

Reading the documentation I saw that one can hardwire the hardware address with an option, a that's what I did.

It seemed to work; in startup it got the address and it assigned an IRQ and a I/O port to the card.

I did a "ping" to a machine and it worked; but when I tried to do a "ftp" or "telnet" it blocked. Afterwards, I noticed that no machine can do a "ping" to this one; this machine doesn`t seem to answer.

I tried a NE2000 10 Mbps card, and it worked perfect.

Could anyone help me? Thanks in advance.
