I had a similar problem, though it was with my ed0-compatible pcmcia network card. At some point in the past pccardd stopped assigning correct IRQ to it, wich resulted in famous `ed0 timeout' error. I've workarounded the problem by replacing `?' with real IRQ number in my pccard.conf, however I understand that it is only a temporarly solution. -Maxim To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
