Thanks, Björn. Your information solved this problem, the networking works correctly now.

Ah, well, I upgraded my other ThinkPad from 600 to 600E to get the 16M colors. I guess I will have to do the same to this new machine for more reasons...

Hello,

I had a Thinkpad 600 and a lot of problems too, especially with networking and the cardbus. It received the impression that the chipset of the 600 is totally broken. The revisited successor 600E doesn't make so much trouble at all.

Add the following lines to /boot/loader.conf, restart and see what happens. These lines solved some of my problems regarding unreliable networking.

   hw.cbb.start_memory=0xd8000
   hw.pci.link.LNKA.irq=11
   hw.pci.link.LNKB.irq=11
   hw.pci.link.LNKC.irq=11
   hw.pci.link.LNKD.irq=11


Regards
Björn
