3c589c PCMCIA problem

Post by Marvi » Sun, 27 Feb 2000 04:00:00



Hi,
I'm having problems getting an EtherExpressIII 3c589c PCMCIA network
adapter to work on an AJP P150 laptop, running RH6.0.  The cardmgr
appears to identify/configure the card OK, but pinging any host (either
10base2 or 10baseT) is unreliable, dropping packets and returning errors
e.g. byte n received as 0x0c but expected 0x0e.  I have tried different
IRQ and base address combinations (0x300, 0x210 and IRQ's 3, 9, 10
altered by editing /etc/pcmcia/config.conf) but it's still wrong.
Telnet is also very slow.
Initially I configured the adapter with linuxconf, but after reading
HOWTO-PCMCIA, created (as it wasn't there) a /etc/pcmcia/network.conf as
it described. This too made no difference.  The adapter when inserted
and removed, beeps correctly, the link light shows expected flashes and
no errors are reported in /var/log/messages (shows the auto-detection
also works OK)
It's made more frustrating by the fact that the HOWTO actually refers to
this 3comm card as an example.
Can anyone help please, Thanks,

1. 3Com 3c589C Etherlink III PCMCIA problems

The pcmcia-cs-2.8.7/2.8.6 reads my ethernet address wrong!

My address is:          EA=00A02463BCC0,
but the driver reads    EA=A0A06363C0C0

As you can see it is unable to get the 1.st,3.rd and 5.th
byte correct. The pcmcia-cs-2.7.6, reads the address
correct, so i wonder what is wrong with the 2.7.8 driver?

Anyeone that has experienced the same problem?
