Hi guys,

I have recently bought a laptop and am trying to get onto the network...

If anyone can help me / point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it=
=20
muchly. Here are the gory details (all typed in by hand, so I apologise f=
or=20
any typos).

I have a 3Com Megahertz Model 3CXEM556B PCMCIA card (that's what it says =
on=20
the card).

When I insert the card / boot up, the following happens (all on the conso=
le):

pccard: card inserted, slot 0
chris-mob pccardd[49]: Card "3Com"("Megahertz 3CXEM556 B") [LAN + 56k Mod=
em]=20

chris-mob pccardd[49]: driver allocation failed for 3Com(/Megagertz=20
3C(CF|X)EM556/): Device not configured

(P.S. Please excuse any typos in that lot!! :-D)

The pccardd process is: pccardd -f /etc/defaults/pccard.conf

My /etc/pccard.conf has this in it:
-------------------------
io=090x240-0x360
irq=093
memory=090xd4000 96k
debuglevel 4

card "3Com" "/Megahertz 3C(CF|X)EM556/"
=09config default "ep" ? 0x1
=09insert /etc/pccard_ether $device start
=09remove /etc/pccard_ether $device stop
-------------------------

(I cut this out of /etc/defaults/pccard.conf so that I could look at the=20
settings.)

My kernel config file has all the network card drivers from GENERIC (I th=
ink).=20
It certainly includes a line:
device=09ep

dmesg doesn't seem to say anything more than this (it shows the card slot=
s=20
being initialized, then output as above).

This is on 4.7-RELEASE

The card works fine under Windows 2000.

--=20

Yours,
