Re: [NTLK] Ethernet Card troubles

I had the same problem with a Farallon card. It goes through the connect
motions -- the light blinks once and quits. I know this card worked
before on my eMate and my 2100, but now it does not. Farallon cards have
a lifetime warranty and they will replace it. Should be here tomorrow. I
will let the list know if it truly is a bad card. Your problem sounds an
awful lot like my problem -- bad card.
