Subject3c59x gives HWaddr FF:FF:...
Hi all...

I have just switched the network card for my internal network from a 8139
to a 3c905C-TX/TX-M. The 3c59x driver gives the buggy FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
hardware address for the adapter. I had heard about the problem and looked
throug LKML archives, but they just point to a non existen web page.
I use 2.4.21-pre6+aa.

What happens ? Any solution available ?
