I have that card (netgear FA511) and failed to get it to work.  The
card costs about $60 but to get it to work would be priceless...

I use woody, kernel 2.4.14 (for xfs) and the latest pcmcia-cs (from unstable)
along with tulip 1.1.8.  When I insert the card, I get an error
message about no IRQ known for Pin A.  

Oddly, I get a similar error message on another machine (desktop with
netgear 10/100 card), but the nic works.

What configuration do you use?  
Does anybody know how to solve this IRQ issue (on a TP 600)?
