Hi Marty,

Thanks for your help.

Yes, the error count does increase after I ping 192.168.100.3 from the
Linux box. Here's the output:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:60:08:8F:CA:9C  
          inet addr:192.168.100.3  Bcast:192.168.100.255 
Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:3 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4000 

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:3924  Metric:1
          RX packets:304 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:304 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 

Does this indicate that the hardware of the card is actually working,
but the software is not configured right?

Also, following Ben Donahue's kind suggestion I tried:

PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1): 56 data bytes
ping: sendto: Network is unreachable
ping: wrote 192.168.1.1 64 chars, ret=-1
ping: sendto: Network is unreachable

Can someone help me to interpret this output?

Thanks for your help - all suggestions gratefully received.

- mark
