Problem with modem and ethernet cards on Gateway Solo 9100

Post by Sergey Gribo » Mon, 25 Jan 1999 04:00:00



Hi,

I have the following problem with my Gateway 9100 running linux:
I have 3Com 3c589D ethernet card and 3Com Megahertz 56K cellular modem
card (3CXM556).
If I get out this modem card, ethernet working fine, but if I have both
cards in, linux doesn't see any ethernet cards at all and says something
like:
"Or you don't have the right driver, or you don't have any card
installed..."

Any ideas?

PS I didn't tried to work with this modem yet, so if anybody  have any
suggestion about this modem, I would greatly appreciate them as well.

Thanks in advance,

I am having pretty much same kind of problem. I have a 3c574 ethernet card &
Megahertz Modem. (I don't remember the Model on top of my head).When both the
cards present, modem doesn't work. But when I take out the network card. Modem
works fine. I haven't got any chance to test the network card though. I posted a
message for help in this newsgroup.

Hey, I have both the megahz modem card & 3com 3c589 ethernet card working fine
together, If you want to, send me your startup messages (/var/log/messages &
/var/log/dmesg files) after booting up, and I'll try to help.
