Re: Networking probs, ifconfig?
Your ifconfig status is definitely bad...
What type 3Com car you have? I have a 3c509 (Etherlink III) and
the driver kicks in fine.

It should report stuff like the IRQ being used, which port (like BNC), and
should also report the card's HW address...

encap should be something like "10Mbps Ethernet"
HWaddr should be the actual HW address of the card
your IP address is missing "NONE SET"
basically you're missing everything... :(
I think either your 3com card is bad or maybe not seated right in the slot?
Here's my entry from ifconfig from a machine at work:
eth0 Link encap:10Mbps Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:E8:C8:D9:D2
inet addr:18.104.22.168 Bcast:22.214.171.124 Mask:255.255.255.0

TX packets:70666 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
Interrupt:5 Base address:0x300
Check the card... Maybe try going into DOS and run a diagnostic on it...
