And another thing I noticed is, my dongle's LED turns on and off and the
pcmcia card gets hot. When I switch to Windows OS, it goes fine.

Hi Donald,

I already made a "tulip-diag" -w before I saw this email. It worked but
sometimes, when I ping, it times out for about 30 secs to 1 min, then it
goes back to normal again. Would you have any idea on how to fix this? Any
tools I need that will help in debugging?

First, ask Intel about the problem.  Perhaps they have an official

The tulip-diag program will update your EEPROM if you pass the '-w'
flag.  But you do this update at your own risk -- this will permanently
update your card's EEPROM to have a media table that should work.
