[Solved]Replacing NIC now Layer 4 and higher not working


OK, this is a somewhat stupid problem that has gotten the better of me.

I had a perfectly good Samba server running on a onboard 100Meg NIC. I got a 3c2000 NIC to replace it.

No firewall, no special config. Vanilla Slackware 10 install. Installed the second NIC. I shut down the other and can ping anyone in the network. Then using the same config as before, but I can't get connected. SSH doesn't work either.

If I shut down the 3c2000 and start the 100Meg NIC it works fine.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have been researching as much as I can. I found a ton of similar problems, but no solutions. i.e. Person is using card XXX they switch to a 3c2000 and SSH, Samba, HTTP stop working. If they switch back things work fine.

Any ideas?

I have to wonder why you are getting a "fake" IP (DHCP autoconfiguration) of the 169.254.0.0/16 netblock. Do you use DHCP on this interface? If so, what do logs from the dhcp server show? Is it offering an IP?

No that's a static IP. It is on a closed network and we use blocks 169.254. 14-18.X

It was started before I took the position and have not taken the time to establish a different scheme.

Solved. The 3c2000.o driver is very outdated. Using the sk98lin driver I was able to make it work.
