OK, that is different. The line I have on the update page
card "SMC EZ CardBus 10/100 Ethernet" manfid 0x01bf, 0x2225 bind "tulip"
I'll have to add
card "SMC EZ CardBus 10/100 Ethernet" manfid 0x01bf, 0x2220 bind "tulip"

How did you build the driver? The Makefile should build cb_shim
automatically, but only if it finds the PCMCIA include files.
I guess I need to add a search path...

Hmmm, I don't know what is triggering this message. It looks as if the
card exists in the PCI table at this point (is the CardBus code adding
it?), but hasn't been assigned resources.

This is a MII card. The only non-obvious attribute is that it has a
transceiver reset method.

Hmmm, it powered up advertising only half duplex media types!?

You don't have link beat. Are you certain the cable is good, and the dongle
is connected? (A common problem is a broken dongle.)

No link beat.
It's faintly possible that this is caused by an incorrectly reset
transceiver. But it really looks like you have a standard case of no
