Hi you all.
I have a strange problem with my ethernet PCMCIA card.
Here's the whole story:
I use a Linksys PCM100 10/100 EtherFast PCMCIA ethernet card, wich I
bought because it was sold with a Linux distribution. I don't care about
the free Linux distribution.... I just made me think the card was linux
This card is used as an interface between my Compaq 1210 pentium laptop
and my (new) cable modem.
When I just put the card into the PCMCIA slot, it didn't work. So I
changed a few settings in LinuxConf.
---> Adaptor 1 enabled
---> dchp, eth0.
And now it does work. Or kind of..... it's really slow. as about a 56k
I swapped the card for a Xircom one and it suddenly turned my internet
connection into a lightspeed transfert path. So I guess the problem is
the Linksys card in itself. Or a bad network setup????
Anyone got an idea?
cause my ISP email is out of order.....
Thanks a lot
