Hello, Please keep the list in the loop. Hold on there! I didn't say to run 2.2.2. It was nice back in the day, but if you were to run it now, the Huns would sack your village. What I meant to communicate is you should use the 3Com software to configure the NIC manually and then enter that configuration - if needed - when setting up your interface. HTH (by being more clear), Stheg P.S. Another poster asked why do you think your NIC doesn't work. That is a good question. What output do you get from ifconfig -a ? __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
