I have this CF ethernet card, which uses Asix AX88790 driver
Has anyone used this card in 2.6 kernels?
I read somewhere that the AX88790 driver is only available for 2.6 kernels.

Socket Rugged CF 10/100 card
Model number: EA2917 - 722, Rugged CF 10/100 Ethernet
Additional info - this card uses this chip:
The Rugged CF 10/100 card utilizes the Asix AX88790 L 10/100BASE 3-in-1 PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Controller.

I'm not giving up easily on this card since it is brand new, and I cannot return it.
Here is a post about someone getting this working for 2.6 kernel
http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-pcmcia@l...g/msg00051.html

Socket indicates that this chip has a Phy bug and they provide a workaround.
