What sort of PHYS do your cards have?
Are they 10Mb or 100Mb?(2104x vs 2114x)
Were you using coax cable (10B-2)?

What version of tulip did you use?  I usually get Becker's
latest stuff if I have problems. Have you run the drivers
in debug mode to look at what was wrong? If you don't
tell Becker what the problem is, the oddballs won't get
supported. I know de4x5 doesn't work on my stuff cause
I forgot to delete it from my kernel config and  the thing
wouldn't talk to anything else on the network. Had to
rebuild to remove it. I only care about 100B-TX cards
and have bought probably 4 different types and all work
with tulip, not de4x5. If you buy new equipment, tulip
is the way to go. YMMV....
