Each individual network client driver is responsible for implementing
multicast filtering.  I suspect that this capability is generally not
very well tested (if tested at all).  So I am not surprised to hear
that it doesn't seem to work for the drivers you tried.

It would be nice to figure out exactly which drivers have working
multicast filtering, and try to fix the ones that don't.  I don't have
a trivial way of testing drivers for this but I'll look into it.

Hmm.  The weird thing is that when I use the same cards on my 2.0.36
laptop (a Dell Inspiron 3500) using pcmcia-cs 3.0.14 it works just
fine.

None I don't think I can explain that

I checked, and the multicast code in the xirc2ps_cs driver has not
changed since 3.0.14.

You can build the current 3.1.14 drivers on your 2.0.36 setup, to
determine if the issue depends on the PCMCIA driver version, or the
kernel version.
