Seting up a PCMCIA NIC
Posted on 2000-04-07
I have been going through this site trying to peice together answers to my problems and I just can't get it.
I've just installed Mandrake Linux 7.0 on my laptop. I have a DlinkDFE-660 PCMCIA Card that lothar recognizes as a DECchip 21142/43. I cant make my netconfig set up work, I suspect I don't have the right kernel module in the basic host info, but i'm not sure. I need to know the config mode, weather the net device should be dummy0 or eth0 the correct kernel module (and how to set it up) and modifications I am supposed to make to /etc/config.modules or any other files. (the config.module currently has a line: "alias eth0 tulip"... is that right?) As a new linux user I am very frustrated.. but not ready to give up yet. any help you can provide would be appreciated. thank you
