Choosing an Ethernet PCMCIA card

Having trouble setting up a PCMCIA ethernet card on my Linux notebook.  Can anyone recommend a PCMCIA Ethernet card which is known to work well with Linux?

Here is the problem I've had with my card:

I've got RedHat 6.0 on a Sony VAIO 270 notebook which is running just great.  The only problem is getting my SHOHOware ND5120E Ethernet PCMCIA card to connect me to a LAN.  The Linux recognizes the card when I plug it in as an N2000 compatible.

I used LinuxConfig->BasicHostInformation to setup Adapter 1
with the following settings:
device: eth0
port: 0x1000
int: 5
details I got from /var/log/messages

Not able to ping my local LAN.

I have had great success with various 3Com and MegaHertz pcmcia/cardbus cards.

Currently i have a 3c575 in my Armada 7800, works like clockwork.
