Bryan,
	Thanks. Have not tried manually mapping the IRQs. It could well be
so. I will disable all the unused devices too. I had already set PNP=No from
the beginning.

Regards

Daniel,

Have you checked for an IRQ conflict?  I ask because I had a realtek do
the same thing to me (m0n0 console said the interface was up, couldn't
ping it, couldn't manage it, etc) and it turned out that it was sharing
an IRQ with another nic in the system.  Some devices can get away with
irq sharing, this card couldn't.  In my case, the solution was to set
the PNP=NO option in the bios and then manually map IRQs, but that
second part isn't always necessary.

HTH,
Bryan
