I have almost the same set-up as Gordon does. I have gotten the modem to work but haven't been able use the network card.

A question to alberto. Does SUSE 6.4 recognize your card as a CBEM or an RBEM card and would that make any difference?

My card is recognized (after playing around a bit) as a CBEM (instead of an RBEM). Could you please tell how i can be sure that not getting a connection is due to the card and not due to doing something wrong with the IP numbers etc.

regards,

Vincent

Try doing:

    ifconfig eth0 promisc

and see if things start working after that.  Whether the card is
recognized as CBEM or RBEM should be irrelevant.
