>Emne: 	IBM Token Ring adapter II
>I need a card which is able to do 16 MBit.
>I use Debian 1.3.1 with Kernel 2.0.29
>I have three Token Ring adapters with a big silver colored IBM chip
>(one of them has also a small silver colored IBM chip),
>and two smaller chips with a IBM label and number on a sticker. All of
>them can be configured via DIP switches. Unfortunately, I have no
>manuals for them.  The first two were not recognized at all by the
>ibmtr module. The third one was recognized. So I set the DIP switches
>on the other two cards as on the third. Now a second card is also
>recognized. The other one is still not recognized.
>The recognized ones are cards for an 8-bit ISA slot, with only a
>9 hole SUB-D connector. ibmtr tells me:
>ibmtr.c: v1.3.57 8/7/94 ... 2/20/95
>tr0: ISA 16/4 Adapter/II found using irq9, PIOaddr a20, 16k shared RAM.
>tr0: Hardware address: ...
>The not recognized one is for a 16-bit slot, and has a SUB-D and
>another connector (don't know the name).
>The DIP switches are set like this:
> 1 ->
> 2 <-
> 3 <-
> 4 ->
> 5 ->
> 6 <-
> 7 <-
> 8 <-
> 9 ->
>10 ->
>11 <-
>12 <-
>Does Adapter/II mean, that the cards can only be used in 4 MBit mode
>(But there is a green sticker on the card stating 16/4)?
>Has anybody a description of the DIP switches of these cards?
>Which of these numbers on the silver and black chips can be used to
>determine the type of the card? 
>I tried on IBMs Website, to find information, but without luck. Is
>there eny other source of information for these cards on the net?
>After insmod ibmtr I tried to ping myself, but ping just tells me:
>PING my.host (<my IP #>): 56 data bytes
>ping: sendto: Network is unreachable
>The card is not yet connected to a network. Is this the problem?
>Thanks a lot!
