Question Unsupported Tulip card only works with DHCP

I've got an unsupported Intel 21142/3 based 10/100 PC card that works fine using the tulip driver as long as I configure it using DHCP.

When I configure the card manually, it won't work until I reset it by issuing a "ifconfig eth0 down up". The only problem is that when I do this, I lose the default route.

My guess is that pump is somehow resetting the card when it configures it.

I know the card isn't supported, but I'd still like to use it if possible. Is there an easy way to force the card to reset without losing routes?

Thanks,
Mike
