HELP: Driver for 3com Etherlink III needed

Post by Tomas Olovss » Fri, 02 Apr 1993 19:23:06


I'm looking for a Unix driver for the 3com Etherlink III card (3c509).
I need it for 386BSD, but the same question to their newsgroups did not result
in any answers. Surely there must be a driver available somewhere???

Otherwise, does anyone iknow how much work would it be to convert an existing  
3c503 driver to a 3c509? And where can I get good tecnical documentation?
(3com is my guess, but it might be expensive!?)

All hints would be highly appreciated! I really would like to keep my
existing 3c509 card!

1. Help: 3com 3c509B etherlink III: Driver loads but ????

I have a dual-boot computer with win3.11 and linux.
During bootup with slackware 3.3 (linux kernel 2.0.30), the driver correctly
finds the ISA NIC. But the machine is not reachable and cannot ping other
machines on the network, although it can ping it's own assigned IP address
but nothing else. The computer works well under win3.11.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.....
