i have 3com 3c509b 16-bit land card
after installation kudzu comes & detects the card.
but when i go for using current network setting.
after reboot , linux is a bit stuck at "bringing up eth0"
& run

i configured it manually in kde, gave the irq 9 which was in windows but its not running.

checked with ifconfig but the card is not there

any idea ??? where iam doing wrong ??

Hi there

First give ur card ip address from "setup" command in text mode.
then it will work fine..

3com creates some problems but dlink works perfectly..

I hope this will help you..
