SMC EtherEZ 8416BT not working
Posted on 1997-11-19
I'm just starting with LINUX, and cannot make my network to work. The
configuration is the following:
LINUX Slackware 3.0 in drive D:
Windows 95 in drive C:
network card SMC EtherEZ SMC8416BT with BNC connection
PC Unisys MDP5665 (pentium/66MHz/16MB)
I have tested the LAN card with another PC using W95 on both machines, so the Hw is OK. (I share drives)
But when I use LINUX in this PC and W95 in the other one, PINGs do not work from neither side. If I PING form LINUX and do an arp -a on the W95 I got the rigth info ETH & IP addresses for the LINUX.
When I do PINGs from W95 PC then Linux (ifconfig ETH0) reports many Receiving errors.
What could be wrong?
