solved the problem of the nic doing it's watchdog timeout by turning off the

1. NETDEV Watchdog Timeout for Orinoco Wireless Card


I am currently running a box with three nics (two wired and one wireless).

Wireless is done using a pcmcia card with an ISA pcmcia adaptor card.
Orinoco silver variety.

I have this same setup working fine on another machine.  However, on this
one I start to get timeout problems as soon as I try to start up the
network.  Here are the errors:

May  5 15:30:53 sunslave kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth2: transmit timed out
May  5 15:30:53 sunslave kernel: wvlan_cs: eth2 Tx timed out! Resetting card
May  5 15:30:53 sunslave kernel: wvlan_cs: MAC address on eth2 is 00 02 2d
04 cb
May  5 15:30:53 sunslave kernel: wvlan_cs: Found firmware 0x70034 (vendor
1) - F
irmware capabilities : 1-2-1-1-1

Oddly my other machines can see the wireless card and get a great signal
from it.  But even if I do not start up my other two nics I cannot get this

I haev looked at /proc/interrupts, but there doesn't seem to be any
