Cnet driver and netgear FA410TX ethernet card not working

Hi All,

I recently bought an FA410TX PCMCIA ethernet card for my A1200 (1D4), I've previously used a netgear wifi card (Prism2) on my A1200 which worked without problems with amitcp 3.02b and Miami Deluxe.

A few nights ago I tried the FA410TX with Miami and Amitcp and I whilst I could ping the NIC I wasn't able to ping the gateway. I tried cnet versions 1.9 and 1.8 drivers and both behaved in the same way. Neither Amitcp or Miami generate an error message, in fact Miami states 'online', yet I still can't ping the gateway. If I switch back to my wireless pcmcia card the same TCP/IP configuration works ok, also I have tried a Wintel laptop in the same ethernet socket on the router and that works ok, so it all points to a problem with the card or driver.

Interestingly the card detection program that comes with the driver can identify the card correctly and all 3 lights on the dongle flash every few seconds but I never get a steady link light. I have tried running the debug driver and the log looks ok apart from 1 line that states 'romstationaddress probably incorrect' but then on the next line the romstationaddress is stated in hex format. I can post the log here if anyone thinks its worthwhile??

I just wondered if anyone has seen these types of problem before and could offer any suggestions? The card is listed as compatible and tested on Cnet driver webpage.

Many thanks

Did you also try it with the cnet16.device in the same package?
