i bought a new noname (Synergy-21 S21811 10/100) PCMCIA Network adapter, so i'm not sure if has a RealTek (the importer said so. ?). I looked up the MAC manufacturer ID (00 48 54 ...) and found an entry for a 21143 Tupip card, but the tulip drivers dont work.
The PCMCIA driver also returns a "0xffff, 0c1090" as manf_id, is that normal (0xffff) ??

My last in info is now that it should be an card produced RealTek.

May someone help me ??

Just edit /etc/pcmcia/config, and create a new entry for the card,
like one of the other tulip_cb entries, but using those manf id
values, and see what happens.

The 0xffff is bogus so you might want to use the product info strings
instead, to be a little safer.
