PCMCIA Network Card - Help! Network unreachable.

PCMCIA Network Card - Help! Network unreachable.

Post by Jeff Johnst » Sat, 07 Oct 1995 04:00:00



Hi!  I'd like a little help, if possible.

I have a pcmcia network card that isn't connecting to the network.

Details:

I have the following:

Compaq LTE Elite 4/75 Laptop
2 pcmcia slots
        1 SMC EliteCard PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter
        1 Compaq 19200 Fax/Modem

I just installed the Slackware 3.0 distribution  (kernel 1.2.13)
using
        bootdsk - net
        rootdsk - pcmcia
+
        disks A1-5 and N1-4  - hoping to get the rest via the net.

Problem:  Lights on nobody home!  Link light is lit, but I can reach the network.

        Get a few lines to like "SCIOCSIFADDR:  No such device"  

It seems my cardmgr is working, because when I pop the card out, it beeps.
I also see the card services start in the startup scripts.

I've looked at the PCMCIA-HOWTO, but I don't think I need to follow those
instructions, because I should already have the kernel support.

What AM I FORGETTING/MISSING?

Please Help.  (Please respond via email if answering after 10/9/95 - I'll
        be out of town for a week and the NNTP server will probably have flushed
        the answers by then)

Well, what you're missing is a Linux-compatible PCMCIA ethernet card.
The SMC Elite is not a supported card.

1. I Get "Network unreachable" with PCMCIA card, need help.

I am running RH 6.1 on a compaq computer with a 10baseT pcmcia ethernet
card.  It detects the card fine, and I can ping my self, but when I ping
other computers on the LAN I get "network is unreachable"  Can't seem to
figure it out.  Below is a copy of route.  And ifconfig looks good with
itherface eth0 and lo.

Dest        Gateway        Genmask        Flags        Iface
90.0.0.1    *                255.255.255.255    UH    eth0
90.0.0.0    *                255.0.0.0                UH    eth0
127.0.0.0    *                255.0.0.0    UH    eth0

Thanks.
