Subject description: driver found 3c589_cs, dhcp does not work
 

Non-cardbus 10MBit/sec Etherlink III works with BasicLinux in the Thinkpad and with Browserlinux (431 based) in a DELL 300MHz Inspiron 3500 laptop.

In Thinkpad 770E Puppy loads driver 3c589_cs, finds live network,
but does not assign proper IP address. (ipV 169... instead). Manual setup does not work either.

A pc_net based non-cardbus card does work in the Thinkpad.
Puppy 4.31 kernel 2.6.21.7.

???

If Puppy finds a live network, it seems to be loading the correct driver

Try typing ifconfig in a console....if you get a 169.254.x.x address, it is probably either not finding your router, if you have one, or a DNS problem

Subject description: Loads driver, cannot find router
 

I know it is not finding the router
(ifconfig eth0 gives the other number)
but why only with this particular card,
which works with another linux in the same computer?
Other cards work in this computer.
dhcpcd is already running. If I assign the
correct IP number manually (with gateway and
dns number as found for the other card) it
still cannot connect to the router or the internet.
I gave up and put the card in a Windows laptop.
I tried this repeatedly, same results.
