None Toshiba Satellite 4090xCDT and eth/modem card 3CCFEM556B

hi,
I could manage to get 2 high beeps during bootstrap - but unfortunelly, it doesnt help much in getting on ethernet:
I can't ping local hosts.
Everything seems to be OK - pcmcia modules and network parameters. I can see there is a problem with routing -
'netstat -r ' takes a _very_ long time to get finished, and in the end, gateway is properly configured, but routing doesn't work.
What I can do to find out where problem is - if I can!

I run Linux Red Hat 6.1 and the latest pcmcia-cs-3.1.11.
Somehow, network is beeing configured before pcmcia has started - could it be reason to my problem?

cheers
Longina

The problem was a bad cable (phone cord instead of network cable).
There really is a difference between phone wiring and cables designed
for high speed networking.
