Hello everyone, back in the days of 5.1.xxx my 3com CFM656B (That's not the exact model number sorry but it's in my machine at home at the moment.) worked beautifully. I had changed to the 5.1 branch of FreeBSD because finally I could use something other than a ratty Linksys 10mbps pccard in my laptop. I cvsup'd religeously and the world built well (usually) and the kernels kernelled and I was a righteous FreeBSD guru. But then.. 5.2.1 hit and my 3com netcard no longer functioned. I searched high and low for fixes, answers cvsup every chance I had and never once did the card work again. Everything shows normal in the dmesg but the bus never resets and the system can't get the station address. I checked interrupts and the card bus is there sharing life with the pccard interface at irq 10. If I'm using 5.1 of the OS (which I reinstalled the other day because i'm trying to get my new Linksys wifi card running) the 3com works and data flows at a reasonable rate. Does anyone know of a fix for the cardbus since that's the only thing I can find that seems like it's out of wack? same hardware works fine with 5.1 but 5.2> is toiletville. My 10mbps linksys card still works but it is a 16 bit pccard and nothing and no cards that I have that are 32bit cardbus work at all. This is on a IBM Iseries thinkpad 1141. It's been my main work horse since I bought it in 2000. Please help make a ratty old laptop useful again. I'll do what I can to provide information to get this problem fixed. Since I see current is now trying to breath life into FreeBSD-6.0 and I would hate to see this problem continue. Thank you in advance for everything.
