NetBSD 3Com pcmcia problem


NetBSD 3Com pcmcia problem

I'm having huge problems getting a 3COM 3CCE589EC card running on NetBSD.

I am running 1.6.2 with the GENERIC_LAPTOP kernel. The card works fine in windows and knoppix.

In NetBSD it is shown in dmesg as follows (dmesg | grep ep0):

ep0 at pcmcia0 function 0: 3Com 3c589 10Mbps Ethernet
ep0 address [mac-address censored], 8KB byte-wide FIFO, 5:3 Rx:x split
ep0 10baseT, 10base5, 10base2 (default 10base2)

I have added "pccard_enable=YES" to /etc/rc.conf

When the machine boots, dhclient does not get an IP address, and the status light on the dongle does not light.

This is really confusing me... any help will be appreciated!
