Cnet driver and netgear FA410TX ethernet card not working
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.
