Low-level problem with PCMCIA networking on Thinkpad 600
I just did a fresh net-install of Debian 4.0r3 on a Thinkpad 600. The
computer has no built-in NIC and I used a Netgear MA401 PCMCIA wireless
adapter (with WEP) for the net install.
Now the installation is complete and networking is not working. The pc
card is detected and iwconfig reports that it sees the access point. It
correctly detects the access point's MAC address and reports sane link
quality / signal / noise levels.
iwconfig reports the interfaces lo, irda0, eth0, wlan0_rename. eth0
appears to be a duplicate of wlan0_rename.
ifconfig reports the eth0 and lo interfaces. For eth0 it reports the
eth0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr
