Exclamation nick 3com 3c509


Hello.
I've just installed a nick card 3 com 3c509 ISA. Card work perfect with win2k. In slack I've made insmod 3c509 to call module and card was found with no anyproblems. Then netconfig, I assigned ip 192.168.0.20. Everything seemed to be alright up to ping time.
Server is placed on really small network with one hub only and a couple workstations.
Problem:
Card was correctly installed but its misses pings. When tried to ping a diffrent work station, I was getting a following message:

ping 192.168.0.1
PING 192.168.0.1 56 octets data
64 octets from 192.168.0.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=225 time 0.3 ms
wrong data byte #2 should be 0xa but was 0x8: 9 8 b c d e f
10 11 12 13 15 16 .....

4 packets transmitted, 3 packet received, 25% packet loss.


When tried to ping from the workstation to the server:
[root@rh73 jakublgz]# ping 192.168.0.20
PING 192.168.0.20 (192.168.0.20) from 192.168.0.1 : 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.0.20: icmp_seq=19 ttl=255 time=0.442 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.0.20: icmp_seq=144 ttl=255 time=0.329 ms

--- 192.168.0.20 ping statistics ---
217 packets transmitted, 2 received, 99% loss, time 216018ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.329/0.385/0.442/0.059 ms

I am sure its not a cable problem cause I tried 3 diffrent once and they worked fine with other workstations.
Also I don't thing card is broken either cause I just pluged it in to win2k and it works fine.
If anyone have any idea what is wrong with it please write back.


Thank you.

Jakub

I take it that you're getting no packet loss under windoze?

Have you tried a different hub/switch?

Hello. THank you for reply. It is not a hub or cable problem. I checked it either way. Well, It may be hardware realted. I suspect that nick card. Meaby windows does not see those errors.
