No success with 3COM 3C589D and Cable modem

Hi,

I’ve been having problems getting my Thinkpad 390E connected to my ISP through a
cable modem and a 3Com 3C589D PCMCIA card.

I know it’s not the hardware, since I can connect to another machine using NetBIOS.
Also, the PC card driver gets loaded OK and the PCCard Director application indicates
that the card is recognized, ready and that there are no conflicts.

My ISP uses a DHCP server, but my machine just doesn’t connect, although everything
seems to be installed and configured correctly.

I’ve tried everything I can think of, and I’m out of ideas. I guess what I’m looking for here
is someone who could give my a rundown of things to check. Or a way to trace what is
wrong.

Any help would be appreciated,

Luc Van Bogaert

    What’s your level of MPTS? Have you added the option line to
    dhcpcd.cfg in %etc% – you can find details of the line in deja.

    Version 5.40, CSD level WR08610

    I’ll look up dhcpcd.cfg…

    I think WR08610 should be OK.

    You wrote to me in email asking:

    >Would that be the hostname, or part of it?–

    The hostname is everything up to but not including the first dot, i.e.
    discard the .kabel.pandora.be from it and you have your hostname.

    Did you set "option 12 <accountnumber>" in dhcpcd.cfg?

    Wasn’t that my hostname that I should specify there? Do you mean I have to specify
    my accountnumber (userID) from my ISP?

    Here’s mine:

    # Basic options required

    clientid   MAC
    interface lan0

    # The following are requested for interoperability with some servers which
    # need explicit requests.

    option 1                                 # Subnet Mask
    option 3                                 # Router
    option 6                                 # Domain Name Server
    option 12 DSPERBER                       # my host name
    option 15                                # Domain Name
    option 28                                # Broadcast Address
    option 33                                # Static Routes
    option 60 "IBMWARP_V3.1"                 # Vendor Class
    option 77 "IBMWARP_V3.1"                 # User Class

    DSPERBER is the value in my "SET HOSTNAME" line in config.sys.

    This works perfectly for my cable modem configuration, both under Warp 3 and
    Warp 4.

    With @home it’s my account number.
