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),


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 ?
