Sorry about this, but you sent a lot of info and only a small part of it
was indeed needed. There is usually no use of 'vortex-diag' run _before_
an 'ifconfig' (which is done by /sbin/init.d/network start), as only
vortex_probe1() routine is called. 'ifconfig' calls vortex_open() which
does all the initialization of the driver internal variables and the card.

I asked you to try to only pass 'options=1' to the driver, initialize the
network (/sbin/init.d/network start) and then run 'vortex-diag'. The
reason is that I want to see why the card is not working. The information
that you provided shows the card's state after a succesfull initialization
with your protocol. This might be useful to see how the card's state
should look like, but I need to see the card's state in a normal
'options=1' initialization; if something goes wrong here I want to see
