Question Problem of smc91c92_cs with a potentially supported card 

Forum: Non-x86 PCMCIA Issues
Date: 2000, Mar 23
From: Tsuneya Watabe watabe

I have a 16-bit 10BT/100BTX LAN card, originally manufactured for the use on 
Apple's PowerBooks under Mac OS. On linux side, the card is well recognized 
by pcmcia-cs and cardctl  ident gives sufficient info on it, indicating smc91c92_cs 
as the driver. So I added this info to /etc/pcmcia/config and booted into the 
linux kernel (2.2.15pre15). The log messages below appears to show no
untowards in terms of card recognition.

kernel: eth0: smc91c100-FD rev 0: io 0x300, irq 22, hw_addr 00:E0:25:15:03:CA
kernel:   128 kb buffer, MII xcvr
pcmcia: Starting PCMCIA services:
pcmcia:  modules
pcmcia:  cardmgr.
rc: Starting pcmcia succeeded
cardmgr[304]: starting, version is 3.1.13
cardmgr[304]: watching 2 sockets
cardmgr[304]: initializing socket 0
cardmgr[304]: socket 0: dit Co., Ltd., PC Card-10/100BTX, 001
cardmgr[304]: executing: 'insmod /lib/modules/2.2.15pre15/pcmcia/smc91c92_cs.o'
cardmgr[304]: executing: './network start eth0'

However, trying to ping always results in no transmit of packets and route add gw 
does not work. Previously I had the same problem with a 10BT 16bit Ositech card 
which also used smc91c92_cs. Though this is not an urgent problem for me, any 
suggestion to solve this problem will be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you.
