Question Strange problem with a NE2000 card on Satellite 310CDS 

Forum: PCMCIA on Toshiba laptops

I have installed a GVC network PCMCIA card on my Toshiba Satellite 310CDS. The card was detected and can be managed by pcnet_cs. however, it often happens that the card stops functionning during network transfer. The only way to get the card back to work is to reset the PCMCIA card manager. Althought this 10/100 Ethernet card is a GVC, no name is given by Linux for the card. It is just a Dual Speed Ethernet card. Could the problem comes from that? If it is, is there a solution? I am using RedHat 6.2. It is not an hardware misfunction since the card works well in Windows 9x. I am thinking about installing only Linux on my computer and I will not be able to do this until this network card works correctly. Any suggestion will be appreciated, except buying a new card. :)
