Subject: Re: Xircom PCMCIA NIC problem with new install of
I went to the archives, and got some info, as well as help from here. Mine
(REM56+) is working now but I still have to do ifconfig and set the address,
and defailt route every time I boot up. The pccard_flags+"-z" is supposed to
keep the system from finishing rc.conf untill the nic is done but I haven't
got it right yet.
Here is what I had to do to get mine to at least configure.
Add to /etc/sysctl.conf
I added to /etc/rc.conf
pccard_ifconfig_xe0="inet 192.168.14.8 netmask 255.255.255.0"
and to /etc/pccard.conf (this you will have to modify for your specific card.
I copied the info lines from /etc/defaults/pccard.conf.
card "Xircom" "16-bit Ethernet + Modem 56"
config 0x27 "xe" ?
# config auto "sio" ?
insert /etc/pccard_ehter $device start
remove /etc/pccard_ether $device stop
Hope this helps
