3CXE589DT Lan Modem driver


I have searched all over for the driver for my 3Com 3CXE589DT pcmcia card, and probably would have given up if it weren't for 1998 post which a guy said he had installed one on his system.

SO I HOPING SOMEONE HAS SEEN THE DRIVER FOR THIS DEVICE , because I am cheap.

thanks

...moved to the Linux - Hardware forum

I believe the 3CXE589DT is a pure network card - it doesn't have any modem functionality. The card should work right out of the box with the 3c589_cs module - I have two 589's (although I am unsure of the exact version number) and they work just fine with all kinds of kernels and distributions.

Would I already have that module, and would I be able to just search for it or do I need to install it from the disks or download it?

Also, when you say it will work right out of the box do you mean it will pnp itself, and if so where will it put itself (ie /dev/ttyS0)?

Thanks for your help. I am fairly new to linux so I am learning about the interaction with hardware now.

Try doing a modprobe 3c589_cs as root. If you don't get any error messages you should be able to bring up the network card as eth0: Try ifconfig eth0 up - it depends on what distribution you use.

Thanks for all your help.

It appears to be working now, I just need to find a port to try it on.
