Sub_title: RBEM56G-100

I'm trying to get Puppy Linux working on an old laptop. The network card has been detected once I added the right xircom module and I can configure the card and connect it to a network. However even though the card will send out packets, it cannot receive any replies (as shown in the stats of ifconfig).

I have confirmed with a hub and another PC running Wireshark that packets are sent out, but the replies from this PC are apparently not seen by the Xircom.

Is this a known problem, something obvious I can fix? If not I'll have to try a different linux distro - I don't have any other PCMCIA network cards available. I've tried puppy 4.1 (didn't even need to add a module here but same problem with the card) but now running with 3.01 (couldn't create save data with 4.1).

The full details of the card are:
RealPort CardBus Ethernet 10/100+ Modem 56

and I'm using a Dell latitude CPx laptop.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
