Einen wunderschönen Tag erlaub ich mir zu wünschen.
Am Wed, 06 Nov 2002 stand also da 3Com509:
>Good day to you all,

Under Dos/Windows I used a set-up utility from 3Com and the card tested good on i/o 0x300 and IRQ 10. What am I doing wrong, can I manually make changes to a configuration file ?

As I am concerned I could do it with 3c509setup and I didn't need
any DOS-machine, as Larry recommended.
The only problem is whenever you have to reboot. It only works well when I
switch off the machine completly, then it starts again perfectly.
