i got a 3com ISA slot lancard (having both option 10-base RJ-45 and BNC 15 female port also 14 legs boot rom option tot=28 legs) model Etherlink III 3c5098-TP
chipset parallel tasking TM, 3com, 40-0130-004, 9709S 40130744, LUCENT 40 -01304
i want to configure it in rh 7.3 or 8 kudzu dont detect it.although it works fine in all windows mans its ok h/w wise
pls hlp me to configure it
I have been fighting that exact POS Nic card in RH8 for over a week. For some reason when it does recognize it, it makes the system unstable. If you can get a better Nic. If you are determined to get it working then set it manually and be careful having it start at boot.
It's an ISA card and those are getting quite dated these days, but it's not any worse than most ISA cards. It does have settings on the card for PnP mode and non PnP mode.
If the card is set to PnP mode then set up isapnp in linux and it should find it and load the 3c509 module. If it's not in PnP mode then you have to figure out what settings it is at and have the module load with the i/o address setting (modprobe 3c509 io=0x300) and probably additionally set the BIOS to not give it's IRQ to PnP devices (a BIOS setting like reserve IRQ or IRQ for legacy ISA.)
If that isn't working then you would probably be better off with a PCI NIC Any other ISA card will have the same or similar issues.
i typed modprobe 3c509 it said module...some thing also told me the path of the module
the module is like 3c509.o
wt next to do??
i tried to configure it using ifconfig ..but cannot msg is device busy or not found??
ya its 3c509b
