Try supplying an IRQ or IO and see what happens.

Mine is in a plug'n'pray port (ne2k clone). I give it the IRQ and it works.
I've also had to tell it to use the ne.o module because it doesn't want to
accept the module for PCI, a running problem that has only worked right a
couple of times in over a year.

Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may work.
