SubjectProblem with PCMCIA 8139too

I have successfully installed the PCMCIA CardBus NIC with realtek 8139 chip. I'm using the yenta_socket module and of course the 8139too module.

As test I set up the interface with

ifconfig eth0 up

and made a ping to another host.

Seems all to be ok.. no problems there.

When I put my Notebook in sleeping mode and resume it, ifconfig shows still the same network configuration, BUT now I can't ping any other hosts.

ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up

doesn't help.

Ping says only:

PING ( from : 56(84) bytes of data.
>From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=5 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=6 Destination Host Unreachable

--- ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 0 received, +7 errors, 100% loss, time 9025ms

Have also tried many other things like reloading modules,
shutting down pcmcia before sleeping etc etc....
As last I used the hotplugging scripts...but also without success.

There are no errors in message or something else:-(
After a standby I have to reboot the Notebook for a proper working NIC:-(

Is there any way that it will work? I like standby and hate booting;-)

Other cards have no problems (older realtek, aironet 340) but they aren't cardbus.
