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.
