Yes, and 'route' showed an additional line. But ping did not work.

Could easily be a bad card. I had lent someone the two known working
3c509s with AUI (for which I had to run a DOS configuration program to
switch to RJ45) but this is RJ45 only. We used the two RJ45/BNC with BNC
connectors and cable and they work.
We tried plip, then llpro via DOS.
The mini-Compaq has a board not lined up well with the case, so it
is hard to get cards in and out therefore I did not try any others.
We set up without ethernet or CD-ROM drive or sound. Onboard SiS works
with Xvesa at 1024 (minus 4MB onboard RAM) after editing XFconfig to
USB worked in DOS and in BL3.40 with 2.4.31 kernel. He may just take the
Jphoto camera to K-Mart to print. We showed him how to display directly
to a TV.
