Re: Sad RB100 - ping itself ok, ping outside no response, arp no h/w address (Alan Tam)

After enable the card with promiscous mode, I got it successfully in pinging outside world and "arp -a" shows correct MAC address of other computer on the LAN

I read from the "known problems" that tulip_cb.c is unstable with Xircom Cardbus Realport because there are so many chip version of Digital Tulip chip.

Thanks Alan
