Hmm sounds like something wierd that was happening to me with a 3com Ehterlink III, that FreeBSD was picking up the card twice on different irq's but would work with pnp turned off on the mobo's bios despite the irq conflict(wierd no), but would not receive packets in linux. If the card is like the etherlink then it may have to have pnp turned off on the card itself as opposed to the bios(which I knew cough) and/or it may have a facility for assigning the irq and various other options in for the card via the setup disk? Possibly if you allocated a different irq and/or turn off pnp on the card via the dos setupdisk you could resolve the problem, it sounds slightly like it might be an irq conflict. ?
