None Something to try...

Try getting the latest version of tulip-diag from Donald Becker's web
site, then use it to write the EEPROM on the card, and see if that
helps.

Ok Success !!

Tried your suggestion (and updated to pcmcia3.18 and the latest version of tulip.c).....

... and it seems to work fine !!!

I'll let you know if I have any problems in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the help !

Mike

Dear Mike,

I seem to be having a similar problem with the same card. I'm using a generic make laptop with an O2Micro bridge. Could you possibly give some more details of how you solved your problem so I can have a go also? I've read the preceeding messages but am a little lost. Any help will be much appreciated.
