Linux cant find Ethernet card
Posted on 1998-11-27
I have 2 computers that I am trying to connect. One runs WinDOS 95 and the other S.u.S.E. Linux 5.2.0-5. I got the network adapter set up ok on the Win95 machine but can's see the Linux machine on the network or telnet to it. The Linux machine is set up as follows:
Ambra 486 DX2
Acer ISA PnP Ethernet card ALN-101 Series
Possible I/O addresses are from 220h-3E0h. Possible IRQs are 3, 4, 5, 9(2), 10, 11, 12, 15.
The setup program (yast) doesn't have an option for this particular card. I tried setting the IRQ to 4 and I/O to 300 as someone told me that it would probe for a card there but without any success. What do I need to do to get the card to work? I'm completely new to Linux so if it's anything very technical (which it probably is) you'll have to explain it to me.
