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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.acquire laptop
2.acquire PCMCIA network interface
3.configure pcmcia network interface to not configure on boot
4.ifdown the interface
5.suspend laptop
6.resume laptop

Actual Results:  The PCMCIA network interface was activated.

Expected Results:  The PCMCIA network interface should not have been activated.

Additional info:

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?
Comment 2 keithu@parl.clemson.edu 2002-04-18 23:28:13 EDT
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.
