Unfortunately, activating the GWETHER option does not seem to make
much of a difference. I have also been playing around with enet_maddr,
but setting it to -1, 0, 0xff0, or 0x7f0 didn't make any difference. I
have noticed that some cards use completely different addresses: what is
the recommended way of finding out the correct value here (I didn't find
anything useful in the PCMCIA information provided by the card)?
