Xircom Cardbus Realport drivers

Are there any drivers for the Xircom Cardbus Realport 10/100+56K adapter, and how are they installed. I am using a Toshiba 490CDT with Redhat 6.0.

I am new to Linux, so please excuse any silly questions on my behalf. My goal is to replace my NT 4.0 Wkstn with a Linux config with the same capabilities. Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

A driver for Xircom ethernet and ethernet/modem cards is included in the current PCMCIA package, thanks to the work of Werner Koch. I've set up a HyperNews forum specifically for discussion of Xircom driver development, at http://hyper.stanford.edu/HyperNews/get/pcmcia/xircom.html.

For a long time, Xircom cards were not supported because Xircom had a company policy of not disclosing technical information about their cards. However, they have relaxed their rules, and now, they do distribute driver information.

Hope that help :)

From the write-up on 3.1.2 PCMCIA package it looks like I'm out of luck. I am using a Cardbus adapter with a Toshiba ToPIC97 bus and one readme indicated Toshiba weren't big on assisting anyone to write a driver.

Is that the case or has someone got a Xircom Cardbus 10/100+56K Adapter working on a Toshiba?

According to Xircom , the driver you use support the following cards

CreditCard Ethernet 10+Modem 28.8™ (CEM28-10BT)
CreditCard Ethernet 10+Modem 33.6™ (CEM33-10BT)
CreditCard Ethernet 10/100+Modem 56™ (CEM56-100BTX, CEM56-100MD and CEM56-100BC)
RealPort Ethernet 10+Modem 56™ (REM56-10BT)
RealPort Ethernet 10/100+Modem56-GlobalACCESS™ (REM56G-100BTX)

If your card isn´t included, I suggest that you look at                               http://www.xircom.com/sdk/sdk-linuxupdate.html.
There you may find beta and alfadrivers for some other cards from Xircom.

with best regards

Good to see that Xircom are becoming a little more serious about drivers. I could not get to the Werner Koch site refered to by Xircom but they did refer to a specific HOW-TO for the Cardbus adapter so I'm going to give it a shot.

Thanks for your help.
