Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-04 16:25:59 UTC
dunno, if supported by the kernel... reassigning

Comment 2 Brian Kaye 2002-12-04 16:35:55 UTC
The adapter did work in RH 7.3

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-04 16:46:23 UTC
and it was displayed in redhat-config-network of 7.3?
is this a pcmcia card?

Comment 4 Brian Kaye 2002-12-04 17:20:22 UTC
All I can tell you is that it worked. I have wireless and 100M ethernet at  
work and 10M ADSL at home and I did take and use my laptop at home.  
  
The card is a Ethernet modem combo card. The lspci coommand does find it and  
identify it correctly. But when I try to use neat to configure it, it does not 
appear in the list of supported network adapters.

Comment 5 Brian Kaye 2002-12-20 21:02:45 UTC
The part number on the modem is 3CN3AC1556B. Could it be related to what I 
repported in bug 78995.

i am having the same problem....
the internal NIC worked fine with fc1 using any of the 2.4.xx

properly ...

Comment 10 Martin Furman 2004-05-28 01:11:52 UTC
hello ...

also if i can add it to this report notice that eth1 is a wirless 
802.11g card.

it is a d-link dwl-650
do you guys know of any drivers that i can us for it ...

thank you,
  martin

Comment 11 Harald Hoyer 2004-05-28 08:12:55 UTC
martin: can you do as root
# echo 'alias eth0 3c59x' >> /etc/modprobe.conf
# /sbin/ifconfig eth0
and retry system-config-network??

and no, I don't know any driver (google might help)

Comment 12 Martin Furman 2004-05-28 20:10:25 UTC
hello ...

i did add it to the modprob.conf and when i look at the output of 
ifconfig i still see that the MAC is ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

lspci sees the card properly ....

thank you,
  martin
