Unhappy network card??? using debian


I'm running debian on a laptop with 75MHZ, 8megs of memory..
I'm really new at this, and I don't really know what I'm doing.
My linksys etherfast 10/100 card isn't working, and when I go into /ect/pcmcia/config, it shows that I have the driver....
what could be the problem? Please help

Are you sure this is for the correct nic? There are a lot of different linksys cards and from the sounds of this, you may have an ancient nic that doesnt work with tulip drives. Try to make sure you have the correct nic name.

means that you need to add the module to your kernel.

the problem JStew mentioned was that you should search for your nic model and see what linux driver supports it. then recompilethe kernel with this module support.

well...considering spux posted after you, i figured i might as well repeat it.
; )

But now looking at the time...maybe your 2 posts were just a fluke.

Either way, if you're mocking my Doug McIlroy quote...i'm coming after you.

nah... not meant as anything personal at all to you or Mr. McIlroy. Sometimes I like to have fun at geeks' expense... they tend to take things too seriously at times... but nothing more than that... :-)
