Well I've been trying and trying to get the 3Com 3c515 ISA net card to work with DSL 0.6.1 for a couple days now to no avail.  I did a HD install, and DSL correctly recognizes the board and loads its module.  However, it never is able to connect to my home network.  Using netcardconfig for DHCP, the program returns an "Operation failed".  Manually configuration in netcardconfig does not allow the card to connect either.

Any suggestions?

  Compaq Presario 4716
  Pentium 200mhz
  32mb RAM
  2.5GB HDD
  HD install, DSL 0.6.1

Try typing:


Is your driver "3c515" on the list? It may have loaded unsuccessfully.

You can try to load it again manually with:

sudo su
modprobe 3c515

followed by:

ifdown -a
ifup -a

You may find some info about this card and Linux by using Google. For example, try going to:

Good Luck.
