slackware 10 - tulip driver buggy?


one thing i'm noticing is the tulip driver seems to be buggy with slackware 10. sometimes i get a network connection, sometimes i don't. initially i thought it was because my laptop was hot (hp omnibook xe3 gc).

anyone noticing this? or how should go about fixing this? the NIC is fixed for this laptop.

I don't think your network prob is related to tulip driver, instead I would investigate with the
network config and if you use dhcp, the availability of the dhcpd server

I have a Xircom 32bit PCMCIA network card I can't get to work in Slackware 10.0. I'm supposed to use the tulip driver but it doesn't seem to work... I have a wireless WP11 which works perfectly.. I think you may be right in saying there is a bug with the tulip driver..

The Xircom 32bit PCMCIA module has its one entry in
Networking Support/PCMCIA network device support/Xircom 16-bit PCMCIA support

On 2.6.9 kernel though...

Would they compatible when the card is 32-bit and the driver says 16-bit. Or am I misinterpretting?
I'll try that driver and see if it helps any, thanks!

here's my observation. after letting my laptop to cool off for a whole day i started it just now and lo and behold! i've got networking working!

i forgot to mention that i have static ip (my bad) so no it's not a question of the network config. what i'll do now is leave my laptop on for the rest of the day (without rebooting) and let's see if it's really a heat problem.

it's definite -- heat problem. the tulip driver has nothing to do with my network problems.
