>>Hi all --
>>I am having a problem with networking on a ThinkPad 380ED...
>>OpenBSD 2.4...3com 589B network card.
>>The system installed cleanly and ran for several days with no problems.
>>I regularly power it off at night -- Tuesday morning when I got to work,
>>the system booted without errors (dmesg and /var/log/messages both look
>>normal), but no longer has network connectivity.
>>I can ping both the ep1 interface and the loopback address, but pings even
>>to other systems on the same hub fail. I have an active link light. I
>>have verified that the /etc/hostname.ep1 file is accurate (not to mention,
>>unchanged from before the problem started, unless it's just started
>>spontaneously modifying itself). arp -na indicates that the box has no
>>entries in its arp cache, not even for itself. Other systems on the same
>>hub are connected.
>>Here's what dmesg has to say about it:
>>ep1 at pcmcia0 function 0 port 0x330-0x33f: 3Com 3c589 10 Mbps
>>Ethernet, address 00:60:08:b2:4e:b7, utp/aui/bnc (default utp)
>> media: Ethernet 10baseT
>> inet 10.1.6.1 netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast 10.1.255.255
>>inet 10.1.6.1 255.255.0.0 NONE media 10baseT
>>? (10.1.1.253) at (incomplete)
>>Clearly if I can't get this on the network, it's not going to be of
>>much use to me. Help!
>>Ugh. So I don't think anything changed as far as the operating system
>>configuration is concerned, I don't have any useful debugging
>>information, what in the world do I do now?
>>Thanks for any help -- Tina Bird
