SubjectPRoblem with pcnet32 under 2.4.0 , was :Drivers under 2.4
From
According to Hans Grobler:

In short:

Cyrix Multimedia box
Everything onboard, including ethernet.
Works as supposed to under 2.2.x (including 2.2.19pre7)
installing 2.4.0 kernel recognises the driver but
no byte is passed over the ethernet.

Kernel:
Linux version 2.4.0-ac7 (root@multimedia) (gcc version 2.95.3 20001229 (prerelea
se)) #2 Fri Jan 12 11:17:47 CET 2001

Distribution:
Debian unstable (sid)


Output of loading the pcnet32 module:

The machine is connected to a 3com 8ports 100Mbit hub

no additional parameters when the module is loaded, except i tried
debug=7 which gave verbose output

After bootup this is the situation:
