Full Version: Can't get my Hawking CF LAN card working

My C750 arrived today (finally!!), and my first order of business was to flash it with pdaXrom. Everything looked good, but much to my dismay I couldn't get my Hawking CF LAN card to work. It's strange, I plugged it in, the lights come on, but ifconfig -a shows it's not pulling an IP, and I can't ping any websites.

What am I doing wrong?

Tried using the setting tool in gui?

Don't worry, be happy. biggrin.gif They said that my Trendnet TE-CF100 card wouldn't work with pdaX, but I managed to get it running by performing two simple steps:

1) Got card's name ("Fast Ethernet" in my case) and manfid by running cardctl info.

2) Edited /etc/pcmcia/config file and added into "Ethernet adapter definitions" section the description of this card (without version, just name and manfid) with command bind "pcnet_cs" (generic Ethernet driver which worked just fine - if it does not for you, just substitute it with a driver for your chipset, if it's available).

That's all. Just don't forget to reboot. smile.gif

Woohoo! That worked! Thanks for the help!!

One extra note though, after those 2 steps I did have to run the lan configuration like Laze suggested.

On my 6000 (with the Sharp ROMs), I didn't have to reboot; I just had to restart the cardmgr: /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart.
