I have a Netgear FA311 and a Slackware 7.1 box (that also boots to NT 4.0).
I downloaded and compiled the source code by Donald Becker (natsemi.c,
pci-scan.c and other files).
I installed the modules natsemic.o and pci-scan.o in
I added insmod lines to my /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 file. Ran netconfig.
Everything was working great--for one day! The very next day it stopped.
Now I cannot ping to and from my Slackware box. I can ping to itself
(192.168.0.99) if that means anything.
When I boot, I see the normal message regarding natsemi.c and eth0. No
Here's the result of ifconfig:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:A0:CC:7A:A1:94
inet addr:192.168.0.99 Bcast:192.168.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0

and route -n gives me this:

I don't understand what could have happened from one day to the next. The
only thing I did was work on getting x-windows up--I don't think I broke
anything. Can anyone point me to what else I should be checking to see why
my networking is not working? Thanks!
