Description Jean Francois Martinez 2004-03-18 16:25:36 EST
Description of problem:
I have a Davicom ethernet card with DM9102AF chip.  Linux detects it,
the dmfe driver is loaded but it simlply dosn't work.  If I set it
an ethernet adress and try to ping another box then by using ethereal
from that box I see the ARP requests coming from the PC with Davicom
card but the later doesn't seem to get the replies.  Now I ping the
box with the Davicom I get a destination unreachable.

Now if I switch the Davicom to 10 Mbps it works fine.  It is not a
cable problem since if I use another 100Mbps card it will work and
throughput clearly shows it is working at 100Mnps.  It is not a config
problem since I don't change it when I switch the speed of the card or
when I switch cards. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install card
2.  Configure
3.   Try to reach another box or to be reached by it
Actual results:
Card only works at 10 Mbps

Expected results:
This is supposed to be a 100 Mbps

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
