I have a COMPAQ Armada E500 laptop with an INTEL 825579 chipset mini
ethernet adaptor in it. We had some trouble setting up a QNX network with it
as node2 in a 2 node network but got it going. After updating to 4.25 I have
found it impossible to get it to talk to anything let alone another qnx

I have added “ramtrap add” to the sysinit to make sure that the adaptor
isn’t straddling some bit of memory that isn’t found by qnx.
Oh and yes the adaptor works. It works fine under windows 98 and also under
qnx RTP loaded on the self same laptop!
Anybody got any ideas or suggestions
