1. IBM PCMCIA Etherjet 10/100 card on Linux


I'm attempting to install linux (Mandrake 7.0 (2) ) on my laptop, a
Sony Vaio PCG-F160, with an IBM Etherjet 10/100 ethernet card.

I managed to get Linux installed quickly enough, but My ethernet card
is not working.

I've got a small firewall that handles DHCP for me, and my desktop
machines in the house all get their IP addresses perfectly fine.

When the PCMCIA Etherjet card is inserted, the firewall is getting the
request for the IP address, and is sending the response, but the laptop
is not seeing the response.

Now, I started looking into this, it seems that the PCMCIA Etherjet
card is trying to use the tulip_cb driver.  It loads, and actually
sends packets, but it does not seem to get the DHCP response.

I then gave the laptop a static IP address, and tried to ping the other
systems in my house. The phone rang, and I was distracted for a few
minutes, and then when I was finished, I noticed that the laptop _was_
getting the pings thru. at 25000 ms ping times. Wow, I didn't know that
it would do that!

So I am fairly convinced that I have the right driver, and it would
work, I'm just missing something...

I have a couple of questions about this :

1. are there any settings I should be putting into
the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file?

2. I noticed that Mandrake 7 uses pcmcia xx.x.9 and there is version
xx.x.11 out. Would upgrading my pcmcia (and the modules therein) fix

3. My network is a 10mbit network, is there a way to force the PCMCIA
Etherejet card to 10mb( if this is a problem)

4. Does anyone have a clue as to where I should go next?

Thanks, in advance,  for any help anyone could offer me in my time of
need... ;)
