Re: PWS600au network problems

It works! Thank you very much.

I have added a line in /etc/modules with the name of the driver (de4x5) and a line in /etc/modutils/arch/alpha with

alias eth0 de4x5

In some way it loads the right driver at startup and all works fine, but I have seen in /var/log/messages that it also tries to load the "tulip" driver (without success, I suppose because de4x5 is already loaded).

Do you know which is the "right" procedure for loading "de4x5" instead of "tulip"?

Thank you again. Bye

Since it has a BNC connector, it probably is the slow NIC, ie tulip
21040/21041 chipset. Those work better, IMHO, with the "de4x5" driver,
rather than the "dc2104x" driver. Try switching to "de4x5" and see if
it works any better.

Good luck.
