 I have the exact same problem. I had this running fine on the
slackware 1.2.1 kernal. I changed drives to a Seagate 540, and
reinstalled the same software, from the same disk sets. But,
now it misses my real NE2000. But, I can boot dos, and use it
fine, and the plusdiag program works fine on it. I have tried
changing its IO adress, but no luck there. Also, putting the
"linux ether-15,0x300,eth0" didnt have any effect either.
So, I also am stumped. Same card used to work, and doesnt now.
This is very bizarre. -pat

HEy welcome to the club. And for two weeks I have asked the same questions and
no person has answer... Its see's my 2 ne2K's at install just fine
there-after it sees nothing, I put in the lilop config deal just as you did
no difference.... Whoever coded hardware detections in the linux
abomination ought go back to putting buttons on clthing.
SAme w/ CD ROMS... And we think microsoft & IBM are bad?
Now we know why they can sell a product, and others put garbage ware on cd
and leetch a few bucks... You get what you pay for, I guess.

I have tried for two weeks to get it right and cannot.,

Yet OS/2 installs no problems, no arguements nothing.

Linux is rapidly in my book becoming a CD that I will use for a coaster,
I oprdered free BSD yesterday, which is what walnut creek recomended to me.
There internet site provides 330 users w/ a P100 128MB system under freeBSD.

Should you find a solution I would be interested... I have over $400 into what
I am trying to do all because of this linux piece of garbage.
Most non-integrated peice of work I ever saw. and the How to's are hilarious
the people that tried technical writing ought go to school to read first.

i just bought an Addtron NE2000 compatible card for 30 bucks, installed
it on defaults, didnt have to give the kernel any parameters, recompiled
to include network card support, and rebooted... connected strait up
to my sun with very little problems from linux.

even my beta win95 detected it with no problems...

just a suggestion for those having problems.. make sure you buy cards
with jumpers on them, not plug n play versions... they work much
better under linux....

TCP/IP Setup and NE2000 compatible card

 ** many frustrations deleted to avoid me getting depressed.
At this point, MANY days later, I have had nobody make any
suggestions. Just like you said, Rich; no help.
 I see lots of other guys complaining that their
ethernet cards are not being found. Well, since I want IP
forwarding, I decided to build a new kernel, and have chosen
1.2.13. I hope I chose well.  Between reading the kernel HOW-TO,
"Running Linux", and the README, I'm trying to sort out sets
of conflicting information. Do to a wrong guess by me, the kernal
build I did last nite turned out useless. So, its a rainy Sunday,
I'll build another, and watch my 386/40 crank for another 4 hours.
 Perhaps a bright, shiny new kernel will see my NE2000 card.

All you people appear to have the _SAME_ problem.  You didn't load the
correct kernel from the 'q' disk sets.  This is actually documented in
the readme's (WHICH.ONE) and the install script!

 Keith, I had made a new kernel, but answered the config questions
wrongly. I had thought that the NE2100 driver would run the NE2000.
I needed to say YES to OTHER ISA CARDS. This got me a NE2000
prompt. Then I had a good kernel. -pat

1. NE2000 compatible card - how to setup?

I have an NE2000 network card. I compiled my kernel with NE2000 support
(at least I think I did). However, it is not automatically initialise at
boot time, which is what it should do. ifconfig outputs only the lo
device, unless of course I am connected to the net, when ppp0 is also on
the list.

"ifconfig eth0 up" gives no problems.
"ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0" returns the following
errors:
SIOCSIFADDR: Operation not supported by device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: Operation not supported by device

In my /etc/conf.modules file there is the following two lines:
alias eth0 ne
options ne io=0x300

I am using RedHat 5.1

What more can I try? What am I missing to get this card to work?

TIA,
Hugo van der Merwe
