Question IBM ethernet card don't work 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 07
From: borg1 borg1

 have a Acer travel mate 514t and a IBM credit card adapter ethernet adapter 2 pcmcia network card.
I installed the installed the pcmcia-cs 3.1.13 and i am using linux mandrake 7.0 with kernel 2.2.14.When i insert the card it finds it and beeps and the cardmgr tells me the name of the card so it must be able to see it.But the network card will not work i have configured the network and the laptop becomes slow when i insert the card.

 The error given in dmesg is

eth0: Tx timed out, cable problem? TSR=0x3, ISR=0x0, t=2000. eth0: pcnet_reset_8390() did not complete.
Hw. address read/write mismap 2
Hw. address read/write mismap 4
[root@laptop /]#

the card has two network fittings one a RJ 45 which i use and one bnc 10 base T
I hardly use the bnc one but do on the odd occasion some times.

And the led lights up when i insert the card and the access led blinks some times.

card ident

[root@laptop /]# cardctl ident

[root@laptop /]#

dmesg

eth0: pcnet_reset_8390() did not complete.
eth0: NE2000 Compatible: io 0x300, irq 3, mem 0xc805c000, auto xcvr, hw_addr 00:04:AC:24:1E:24

the loptop runs slowley when the card is inserted and some times the hard disk will go insane and fill the screen up with the
Hw. address read/write mismap 2
Hw. address read/write mismap 4
and then stops when you take the card out but this onley happens then you have the card in slot 1
