Linksys LNE100TX cards and Debian

Post by R.Karthi » Mon, 09 Feb 2004 05:52:23


Atlast i am giving up.!!

I run debian woody with default shipped in 2.4.20-bf24 kernel. I have
a Linksys LNE100TX network card. I use a tulip.o module for it. I have
connected this box ( ) to an m$ windows xp system. That
system has the ip address .

Now when i give the command

 # ifconfig eth0 netmask

I am able to ping my system using

 # ping

When i try to ping the xp box ( ), it times out after a
while, reporting 100% packet loss. but when i do the same from my M$
xp os with the same ip as i had in debian ( ), it pings
and network is really up.

I tried compiling a new kernel(2.4.21) with the tulip driver built
into it. It doesn't help too.

I also triied loading the module using various options in 2.4.20-bf
kernel. It didnt work either.

Am I missing something? Have anyone configured Linksys cards? I think
there should be an error at lower protocols, as even the ping doesnt

Btw, I am using a 10mbps card and my friend is using a 10/100mbps one,
in a peer to peer connection using cross over cables.

any help will be highly appreciated :)
