I think we have a problem with 3C905Cs

You need version 0.99L of the driver, available from:

I have the Tornado card as well (3C905C) and it works fine for me.

Sorry, I don't recall the details for how to compile it into the kernel,
but I recall that it wasn't necessary to actually rebuild the kernel per
se, just to compile the 3c59x.c module and place the resulting 3c59x.o in
the right place.

Good luck,
