 Ethernet card driver issues...
Author: Erin

I'm very much a newbie, so if I'm asking a ridiculously stupid question here, please point me to where I can find a solution. I've tried RTFM and searching online, but haven't found anything that helps me solve the whole issue here.

I have tried unsuccessfully to install a Linksys LNE100TX ethernet card on my HP-Pavilion running FreeBSD 4.0 RELEASE. It works fine in Windows, so I know it's not a problem with the card itself. I've added the lines "device miibus" and "device dc0" to my kernel config file, and my dmesg shows the following:

dc0:<ADMtek AN985 10/100BaseTX> at device 10.0 on pci0
dc0: couldn't map ports/memory
device_probe_and_attach: dc0 attach returned 6

When I try ifconfig, it outputs the following:

ifconfig: interface dc0 does not exist

I've been told I have driver issues, but how do I fix it?
