Sad Problems with Compex Linkport

I have pcmcia card -Compex Linkport /ENET-A. (I/O Base Address default 320H,Interrupt default 11) (Linux kernel 2.0.34, PCMCIA package 3.0.0) When I insert my card ,Linux detects it but it detects incorrect card (while booting kernel it is written LinkSys Ethercard 10/100Tbase,I/O=300H,IRQ=3) then system gives information that my card wasn't correctly set. What can be done to solve this problem? Thanks!

The Compex and Linksys cards are the same card, so it wasn't detected
incorrectly.  I don't know what you mean when you say the "card wasn't
correctly set".  Specific system log messages might be helpful.

Well,while booting the kernel at the moment of loading pcmcia card I hear one high beep and then one low. Then it is written (Loading device 'eth0'... eth0:NE2000 compatible:port 0x300,IRQ 3 SIOCSIFNETMASK: invalid argument Your ehternet card was not initialized properly)

If I had to guess, I'd say you have a mistake in your network
settings.  This error seems to be saying your netmask is bad.
