Description of problem:
The PCMCIA network interface cards I have (one wired, one wireless) are handled
incorrectly after a laptop resume. Even if the interfaces are configured to not
come up on boot and even if I ifdown both interfaces before suspend, both
interfaces come back up on resume. This does not happen with the internal
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.acquire PCMCIA network interface
3.configure pcmcia network interface to not configure on boot
4.ifdown the interface
Actual Results: The PCMCIA network interface was activated.
Expected Results: The PCMCIA network interface should not have been activated.
For most users, this will be a relatively minor problem. For me, I have a
laptop w/ a winmodem, so I bought a nice, trustworthy 3COM combo card (had used
it before and trusted it). Well, I will have two
PCMCIA network interfaces most of the time - the 3COM one and a wireless card.
Most of the time, only one should be up. having both come up after a suspend is
Hm, is this hotplug bringing up the interfaces?
Just realized that the same happens with the built-in network interface. It had
not been coming up before because another card was interfering (long story).
Anyway, the short version is that the built-in (non-PCMCIA) network interface
also comes up after suspend whether it was up before the suspend or not.
