Network card 3c905TX and LinkSys LNE100TX

Network card 3c905TX and LinkSys LNE100TX

Post by K.C.RajKuma » Fri, 07 Jul 2000 04:00:00


   I am trying to setup my home network.  I have got RH6.1 on two
machines.  I have got two NIC on my e-machine ( Netgear FA310TX and 3com
3c905 TX ).  Netgear FA310TX is up and running on eth0, connected with the
cable modem (dhcp) and everything is working fine.

   I tried to bring up the 3Com 3c905-TX. I added the alias entry "alias
eth1 3c59x" in the /etc/conf.modules file. On the /etc/sysconfig/network-
scripts/ifcfg-eth1 file, I added the following lines..


  When I tried to boot the system, it gave the error message "Delaying
eht1 initialization". After login, I tried to bring the card up by using,
   ifconfig eth1 up

  I found the card was up, when I issued the command "ifconfig" with inet
addr:  But there was no LED - Green light on the card or in
the HUB.  Ping worked fine. When I tried to see the status using "pump -i
eth1 --status", the command failed and then I couldn't see the eth1 card
up when I checked the status with "ifconfig".  But again I tried to bring
up the card with "ifconfig" and it came up, but the same problem persists.

  I tried to change the cable modem connection from eth0 to eth1 and
changed all the required files and started dhcpcd with eth1 ( 3c905 TX ).
The command failed and I got the exit code as "14".

  When I tried to bring up the card ( Link Sys LNE100TX ) on other
machine, I got the error message "Delaying eth0 initialization". tulip
driver is available on that system and I have made the alias entry in the
conf.modules but still it is not coming up. ifconfig eth0 up
also failed!!.

  Please help me in solving this problem.

Thanks In Advance,

1. Linksys LNE100TX network card in RedHat 6.2


I am a newbie. I tried (unsuccessfully) to install Linksys LNE100TX
networking card in RedHat 6.2.

Linux doesn't detect my card (it's a PCI card) when it boots.
When I compiled and copied tulip.o to  /lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/net
directory, and executed depmod -a, I got the following message "unresolved
symbols in tulip.o ."

Would somebody please tell me what could solve my problem?
If I install RedHat 7.1, will it recognize my NIC ?

Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.
