Are these cards based on a Tulip chipset? If not, than you're posting to the
wrong list. This list isn't meant for questions about getting your network
People, please don't send these kind of questions to this list. This list is
meant for users of DEC Tulip based cards. If you can't get you network to
work because you don't know how or keep running into problems you can't solve,
try reading the HOWTO's first. Most of your questions will probably be
answered. Unless you're using a Tulip based card that's causing problems...
Btw. I'll mail you privately with some suggestions.
