tulip driver ok on Slackware 7.1 but not 9.1
I have used Slackware 7.1 for a few months with no network problems. Upgrade to 9.1 and can't get network to connect. Went back to 8.1 and still no connection. Have used netconfig to DHCP which worked with 7.1 without luck and have changed to static IP as per some postings I have read and no luck. ISP is Roadrunner and NIC is Linksys LNE100. The card is grabbing IRQ 11 no problem and tulip drivers seem to load, but cannot find a DHCP to connect to. Linksys routers in wired and hard wired to wireless versions also tried to no avail. Reinstalled 7.1 and works fine again, as well as windows dual boot. Is there some easy way to install the tulip driver from 7.1 into 8.1, or better yet get the tulip driver in 8.1 to set up as easily as it does in 7.1. Would really appreciate any assistance.
