I bought the exact same network card -- and by the sounds of
it, with the exact same packaging.

There was some linux drivers that came on the CD supplied
with the package, the same drivers are available on the
http://www.kingmax.com.au/ website. These drivers seem
to replace some of standard modules with their (modified)

I was using slink (no network = no network update, and i cant
burn cds) with a 2.2.12 kernel, and i grabbed the pcmcia-cs source
and compiled it myself -- that was required for these modules.

Although after doing this, my system will reconise the card
when i insert it (before (using default modules) it didnt..)
but i still have similar problems to what you exhibit, including
TX-done missing errors, and i am only able to access into or
out of the computer whilst i am pinging my gateway, often the ping
times get up to around 8000ms.

Does anyone know if this could be a problem related to the network
card, its drivers, or is it my hardware ?
