suddenly, lan problems- used to work fabulous without effort.
I have a thinkpad t22 with a 3com mini pci ethernet/modem combo card.
this has worked perfectly, instantly when I'e installed before.
recently I re-installed to get rid of a seg-fault problem and now it doesnot work
despite all the thinks I've tried within mcc. I have installed three times with the old discs and once now with a new dvd installation and still... no go.
ifconfig eth0 gives me this...
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
inet6 addr: fe80::fdff:ffff:feff:ffff/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

I read some other posts and checked the firewall settings (which says allow all)
but the next page I get asks for how I connect to the internet, and lists the ethernet
but will not keep the setting and defaults to the modem, which I've never used.
I also noticed the hardware address ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff ??????
my wireless is working fine, with no change
is my ethernet card just dead?
