I got a replacement the defective Jack of diamonds card I had
before, but the new one still does not want to work under linux. When I
try to mount the ethernet device it tells: 'SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device'.
In the syslog I get 'smc91c92_cs: Yikes! Bad chip signature' and the
ethernet device doesn't show up. The card itself passes all its tests with
the company supplied program. I changed the memory window, irq and the
ports to almost every imaginable value, no difference. The computer is NEC
Versa 4080H with linux 2.0.30. Some ideas of what may correct the problem?
The modem part works O.K., no problem from this side.
