RE: [linux-tr] Slow Turbo Adapters

The last time it happened was a long time ago.  I was so pleased to see
Lanaid run properly and have it recognize the adapter that I did not pay any
attention to the settings.

I wondered at the time if the problem was with the motherboard bios, or with
the amount of memory I had installed, but I never came to any conclusions.

Where I work there were literally hundreds if not thousands of token ring
nodes at one time.  I talk with the network people regularly.  In over eight
years I only heard of one IBM token ring card failing in service.  Maybe
yours just failed for some reason.

I tried it in every ISA/PCI system I could find, with every possible
bios configuration, but it didn't work, so I just had it replaced :-)

Any guesses what exactly goes wrong ?

What are the configured options in the "dead" card when you put it in a
386 or 486 ?
