Re: Thinkpad 600E and xircom REM56G-100 trouble with kernel 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4

Hi Billy,

Sounds like you need to update the drivers for your network card to suit
your updated kernel(s).

I have to do this with my dial-up & wireless cards.

I would probably use 'lspci -v' to find the chipset of your card and look
around for updated kernel drivers.

Hope this helps.
