SubjectRe: anyone got the same problem with DIGITAL 21143 network card ?
I too have the same problem with atleast 2.4.9 and later (I think
it broke somewhere around 2.4.4). However, in my case there is a fix (not
a practical one though). Simply pull the ethernet cable out and plug it
back in again and it starts working.

I see no errors and the cards signal link and 100fdx.

I currently run 2.4.1 which is ok (tulip version 0.9.13a).

My card is a dlink 500TX detected (2.4.1) like this:

Linux Tulip driver version 0.9.13a (January 20, 2001)
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 00:09.0
eth0: Digital DS21143 Tulip rev 65 at 0xbc00, 00:80:C8:F7:14:BA, IRQ 5.

some version info (guessing it broke somewhere around 2.4.4)
2.4.1 tulip-0.9.13a OK
2.4.4-ac12 tulip-0.9.14e bad*
2.4.6 tulip-0.9.15-pre6 bad*

* can't reboot the machine in question, but IIRC...
