Description of problem:
After upgrading to kernels 2.4.18-24.7.x (i think) and then 2.4.18-26.7.x the 
eexpress ISA NIC fails to receive or transmit IP packets consistently. I have 
successfully fallen back to 2.4.18-19.7.x and it works quite happily. The 
eexpress driver loads okay in all cases but pings, etc fail on the higher level.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot off kernel-2.4.18-26.7.x
2. Ping anything connected to ISA NIC for whic eexpress is the driver.


Actual Results:  Pings fail

Expected Results:  Pings should work

Additional info:

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

eexpress is broken on kernel 2.4.18-27.7.x also.

Patch in the next attachement seems to solve the problem (this is from 2.4.20) 
for me.
