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):
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
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)
