Posted by weirdo on Oct. 16 2008,18:34I have a very weird problem. I have a Realtek 8139-based PCMCIA network card that is not detected in DSL in either of my two sony laptops.
Theres the twist at the end:
When I put the same PCMCIA card into a PCMCIA -> PCI adapter which is installed in my desktop computer and boot using the same DSL CD, the network card is recognized. This is a great mystery. Anyone know what gives? Its important I get the PCMCIA card working in the laptop. Please help!
(It can't be done is not an option, as I will hack if need be)
Posted by curaga on Oct. 19 2008,12:39Seems like a pcmcia problem in your Sony laptops. Can you try another pcmcia card?
Does a search with the models of those here bring any results?
Then there are a number of boot codes that can get your pcmcia bus working. First that comes to mind is pcmcia=assign-busses
