pnpdump and ISA 3c515 "corkscrew" board


Hi, I have an ACHME 486 DX 2-66 Motherboard. I have replaced the HP network card with a 3Com 3c515 Corkscrew network card.

The 3c515 card is plug and play and I have not had any success so far in getting it working with my linux kernel. The kernel has the drivers for the card compiled in and upon booting says that 0 3C515 cards were found.

I have made use of isapnptools but running "pnpdump" says no boards found.

I was wondering if I am missing a step needed in order to get the 3c515 card seen by the kernel ?

(Info on 3c515 driver http://www.phy.duke.edu/~rgb/brahma/...ers/3c515.html)

If pnpdump doesn't see the board, it's not responding to PnP probes. That's not a driver problem, but a problem with the card or the motherboard. Try re-seating the card and check for excessive dust buildup inside the slot.

I know the 3c509 can be configured to operate in non-PnP mode with hardcoded I/O port, IRQ and DMA settings. I don't know if that's also the case with the 3c515, but if it is, you may need to use the 3Com diagnostic/configuration tool (an MS-DOS application) to view/change the settings.
