3Com Etherlink III ISA card. comaptable?


I have a "3Com Etherlink III" card with an ISA connection, that has an ether net connection, and two other ports, i dont care about the others (but if i can get those to work also, I wont argue) all I want is to get my ethernet hardware working.

does anyone know what drivers I should use? or a tutorial that on it that works with the 2.4 kernel?

You must load module 3c509
try:
modprobe 3c509
If you see error, then load win98 get irq number and io port which that card aquiped.
Then in linux try again
modprobe 3c509 irq=10 io=0x300
