[vortex] 3c556 does not wake up after suspend-to-disk

i have Dell inspiron 8k with RedHat7.1 with internal 3com combo. it is
giving me hard time. after it resumes from suspend to disk, network seems
not working. i've checked apmd and made sure it is working fine. it comes
down to the network card. i suspect for some reason the card itself is not
waking up.

after suspend,
when i do "ifconfig", it does not report "eth0".
when i do "ifconfig eth0 up", it gives this:
	SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
when i do "mii-tool eth0", it gives this:
	SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: No such device

strange thing is that,if i wait 15-20 minutes, and then do "ifconfig eth0
up" then it does!!!. somehow some kind of timeout is in play.

"dmesg|grep 3Com" gives this:

eth0: 3Com PCI 3c556 Laptop Tornado......

kernel is: 2.4.2-2

any help is appreciated.
