In particular the xircom_tulip_cb driver from 2.4.13-pre4 should work well
at Columbia (since that's one place where I tested it :-). You can simply
copy the xircom_tulip_cb.c from 2.4.13-pre4 into pretty much any 2.4
kernel and recompile, and it should work -- except maybe for the
MODULE_LICENSE line which can be safely commented out.

Arjan, are there still cards that don't work without promisc mode enabled?
I got two different versions myself and both work very nicely with the
latest xircom_tulip_cb.


It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool,
than to open it and remove all doubt.
