What network adapter?

Comment 2 Jonathan Marc Bearak 2003-11-11 05:21:57 UTC
I also encountered this problem.  My network card (from hwconf):
driver: 3c59x
desc: "3Com Corporation|3c900B-TPO [Etherlink XL TPO]"
I discussed this on linux.redhat:
I was helped in the diagnosis.  The ultimate explanation was that a
program called mii-tool was not working right with my ethernet driver.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-11-11 12:07:18 UTC
Yes, I also have a 3C900B-TPO.

Couldn't quite follow everything in the aforementioned linux.redhat 
thread, but commenting out lines 274-278 does get the connection up 
and running.  Thanks!
