[realtek] Same problem as Mr. Dante Plicato
Mon Mar 4 15:14:01 2002
Here are additional information to my first mail.
At first thanks to Mr. Plicanto, he posts all his logs, I could copy/paste and change them, so I don't need to type alle the logs
(my network card's not working unfortunately ;-)
I have exactly the same problem as Mr. Plicanto, but with other hardware
sony vaio pcg-n505x
pcmcia_cs - 3.1.31
it seems to be the same card (the label sais "hama 49272" - hama is a german reseller who don't have an own production) but a
different cardbus controller:

Ok, older rtl8139.c because I could neither compile the version from the "test" directory nor the one from the directory above.
I tried both bios settings PnP-OS yes/no with no effect. It seems that the bios (Phoenix) doesn't assign an IRQ to the card at all.
Is it possible to do that with an external (maybe non-linux) program?
The green led on the card goes on just in the moment cardmanager recognizes the card (beeps first high then low) and my switch
indicates 100MBit/full duplex - but that's all. No eth0 interface available.
Thanks in advance for any help!
