LinkSys DEC DC21040 Card Not Recognized--HELP!

LinkSys DEC DC21040 Card Not Recognized--HELP!

Post by Anna Winkle » Sat, 01 Mar 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm trying to get my Linksys EtherPCI LAN card to work with Linux.  It
isn't even being recognized right now.

I'm using the 10BaseT connector, and have a cable from the card to a hub.
In DOS it appears that the card is recognized (I see the spot for the
linux machine light up on the hub).

I'm running Slackware Linux 1.3.0 with a kernal I compiled with support
for the latest tulip driver (I got it off of Don Becker's site).  When
I boot linux, I get the following messages:

I've then found and compiled a tulip-setup from Don Becker's page.
Running it gives the following info:

I've also tried to boot linux with the following line (I use lilo):
  linux ether=11,0xe800,0,1,eth0
but that doesn't do anything.

I have run out of things to try.  Does anyone know of what my problem
is with this card and how I can solve it?

Thanks very much for any assistence,

Anna Winkler

recognizing her DEC Ethernet card.

I would like to add that I also cannot configure linux to use the DEC
PCI Ethernet DC21142 card on my new Digital Personal Workstation. Has
ANYONE ever sucseeded using these DEC cards?

Thanks,

Zvi Terem

The tulip driver works with these cards. I am currently using
a 21040 based card
