RE: need help with Linksys 16 (ISA 10 Mbps)

Hmm.  I use the Linksys 10/100 with no problem, and it reports as ne3
(with the old kernels) or ne0 (with the new.)  In fact I bought the
linksys because I knew it worked with OpenBSD.

My experience has been that oBSD really doesn't like ne2000 cards, & other
people seem to have shared this experience.  The most expedient solution
would probably be just to get another ethernet card (especially
considering that ISA models can be had pretty cheaply).
