I have installed Linux 6.1 on a 133 Pentium clone computer. It is the only O/S on the computer.
There are only 2 cards in the PC, one ATI
Allwonder video card and one Kingston EtheRx VP 10/100 KNE110TX network card.
Linux sees the card at boot up and I can use the "dmesg |more" command and the card is in the list and seems to be active.
I can ifconfig or netstat and the card shows up.
I can ping the cards IP and loopback.
I know the card is good, I can install Windows 95 or Win Nt 4.0 on this same machine and networking works. So the card is working, the cable is good, the same port on the hub is good, but I can not ping any other PC on the network. On the hub, the light for the port doesn't change color showing a connection.
In the docs for Linux, the card is supported. I have also tried 2 other cards with the same results. ( Compaq NC3121 and NetGear FA310TX)
Thanks for any help
