3c59x: Auto-detects, boots, but can't see the outside world.
Posted on 1998-08-24
I am trying to get a Linux server up on the network, simple enough I know. I have a 3c905B ethernet card. Install autodetects the card and at boot the card appears to work great, but when I get to a prompt, I can't ping any other machines on my network. I have checked and rechecked my static IP number, DNS, Netmask, and Gateway and they all are correct. ( I've also had someone else double check my numbers, so I am 99% sure I have everything configured properly. ) I have also tested with other 3c905B cards (2) and both had the same results. Any clues?
P166, 2GB SCSI Hard Drive, Adaptec 2940, S3 Trio (some really generic v-board), and a 3c905B 10/100m-bit card.
