Hi Dave, Dieter,
Is the DFE650 problem solved now ??? I have a similar problem, kernel 2.2.16-3 (redhat), pcmcia card services 3.1.8, DFE 650 on Toshiba Satellite 2210XCDS. The card is detected (two beeps), ping to eth0 IP works but to default gateway doesn't. On /var/log/messages appears: eth0: found link beat eth0: lost link beat (one second later)
This card works fine on the same laptop with NT.
Regards, Jorge Pizarro
