And when I transfer at 100mbps I get nearly 100% system (overhead) time
for this kard. The ethernet card ( on the laptop mother board ) that is
native to this machine uses approx 25% system overhead ( for the same
transfer specs).

I suppose there is no quick ans as to why so many CPU cycles are being
used by this device driver - xirc2ps_cs/ds/pcmcia_core ?

1. need help getting a Xircom PCMCIA ethernet card to work under freebsd 4.2

I'm having trouble getting my network card to work under FreeBSD-4.2.
My laptop is a toshiba tecra 8000. And my networkcard is a 'Xircom
realport ethernet 10/100 +modem 56'.
I've gotten my PCMCIA slots to work, and the card is detected properly
when inserted.

However, after insertion it gives me the following 'errors':
pccardd[196]: Card "Xircom"("CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56")
[CEM56] [1.00] matched "Xircom ("CreditCard Ethernet") [(null)]

pccardd[196]: Config id 35 not present in this card

pccardd[196]: Resource allocation failure for "Xircom"("CreditCard
Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56") [CEM56] [1.00]; Reason specified CIS was
not found
-----------<end paste>------------

Another card (an argossy (see does seem to
work properly. So I guess it has something to do with the driver for
some reason.

Does anyone know how I can get it to work? Because I'm kindof out of
ideas over here.

Thanks in advance,
