Hi All

I would really appreciate some information about the difference between the
3COM 3c905a-TX and 3com3c905b and c -TX's.
I am running 1.4.1 on and i386, and the 3c905a works OK but the b and c's do
not.... I know that 1.5 supports the 3c905c-TX.

What changed in the implementation of the driver between 1.4.1 and 1.5?
Why was this necessary?
Was this a result of a change in the hardware implemention or for
How simple would it be to include this functionality in 1.4.1?

Thanks in advance
