PCMCIA network card(DE660) installation question

Post by C.Y. S » Fri, 01 Jun 2001 11:26:30



I have trouble with my PCMCIA network card(DE660) installing to my
Laptop(Compaq Presario 1682).  During boot up process system gives a high
beep + low beep. I checked system log and found: for some reason OS doesn't
understand what is eth0. Note: PCMCIA card service start successful. Any
advise would be very appreciated!

THis means it finds the card OK, but then later setup fails.

Yes, that's clear enough. You haven't configured your network.opts with
any sensible data, I think. You'll have to turn on a bit more
sebugging in the pcmcia script (with "set -x") to see precisely what's up.

confirm card is A-OK.

And now ...

Quote:> May 31 08:10:59 localhost cardmgr[443]: + usage: ifup <device name>

No useful data supplied to the ifup command. It should have got "ifup
eth0". Check tye script for why.

1. PCMCIA Network PCCARD Dlink DE660

Hi,
a friend of mine has a notebook and a PCCARD Dlink De660 (10 BaseT) and
want to connect to the local network. Now is there a problem: How can I
handle with that. i compiled a new kernel under FBSD 2.2.8-stable and
started pccardd and he has the identifer string and the manufactor sting
of the card but has no entry in pccard.conf.

My fried told me that this card is ne2000-compatible.

Is out there FAQ or HOW-TO, which can help me. Or has anybody any ideas or
such a card running?

Would be nice. Thank you for time and hopefully for you help.
