problems with linux + tr + switch


I have trouble with my Linux-box getting over a Madge TR-switch:

configured for transparent routing).

Is there a way to tell my driver to do transparent routing, or are there
other possible causes for my problem? (I had a longer time ago with another
machine [w95] some strange problems with the ARP-request on another
