Question ifconfig crash on a Satellite 4070CDT with D-Link DFE-660

I had my Ethernetcard D-Link DFE-660 working with RH 6.1 and pcmcia-3.0.14. After I tried to configure my soundcard it stopped working. But since then I was not able to get my network working again. I checked that the sound modules do not get loaded any more but that changed nothing. I now upgraded to Kernel 2.2.13 and pcmcia-3.1.4 but with no success.

When the card is inserted I get 2 beeps and ifconfig -a shows:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:80:C8:8F:61:0C  
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          Interrupt:5 Base address:0x200

          inet addr:  Mask:
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:3924  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 

which looks good.

dmesg tells me

which also looks good.

But as soon as I try to start the network either with /etc/rc.d/init.d/network start or simply with ifconfig eth0 netmask broadcast

ifconfig crashes with the following message

Is there anybody who knows whats wrong or what I am missing.

The strange thing is that it worked but I am not able to get back to that. The hardware seems to be fine as I am able to use the card with Windows.

Thanks for any suggestion
