I've had problems with tulip cards. For my Xircom RBEM56G-100, I
have to put it in promiscuous mode to get it working. I modified
/etc/pcmcia/network with the promisc line below.

        elif [ -x /sbin/dhclient ] ; then
            # workaround for tulip bug
            /sbin/ifconfig $DEVICE promisc
            /sbin/dhclient $DEVICE >/dev/null 2>&1 || exit 1
