Problem:

experiancing 'watchdog timeouts' with Cabletron PCMCIA 802.11 radio card
(wi0). Card doesn't work as expected. Is detected Ok - but as soon as you
'ifconfig' the card - a few seconds later the 'watchdog timeout' messages
are displayed.

Configuration:

FreeBSD 4.7 - RELEASE #0
normal desktop PC with COM2 (IRQ 3), parallel port (IRQ 7) disabled.
Nokia C910 PCMCIA / PCI cradle <Cirrus Logic PD6729/6730 PCI-PCMCIA Bridge>
Skynet (Cabletron) 802.11 radio card.
ISA VGA card
NE2000 Clone NIC <NE2000 PCI Ethernet (RealTek 8029)> works Ok.

Tried:

moving the radio card to different IRQ and different IO address. same
problem.
Using the PCMCIA cradle (pcic0) in Interrupt mode. no differance.
Played with the hw.pcic.intr_path parameter. no differance
Cabletron card works OK in win2k laptop.

Do I sound desperate? I'm getting that way..

All the documentation / examples I've seen tend to indicate this problem is
caused by interrupt sharing. I'm almost certain this is not the case - would
like to be corrected - and make this work!

See below for dmesg output.

Please reply directly - I'm no longer subscribed to this mailling list.
