Does it work better if you replace "8139too" with "8319too_old" in the
/etc/modules.conf file ?

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-06 13:43:48 UTC
woops you already tried. should have seen that the first time I read the report.

Comment 3 giuliano 2001-08-06 13:48:29 UTC
Any way, yes. With the old module it works well.
