I have an A4000 running OS3.9. The machine has an X-surf ethernet card installed. Now I want to connect it to my Router (a Draytek Vigor 2200E).
When I start Genesis I get the following error: iface_init:can't open device DEVS:Networks/x-surf.device unit 0.
This may be a software/configuration issue, but I'm clueless. Any help is appreciated.

"I have an A4000 running OS3.9. The machine has an X-surf ethernet card installed. Now I want to connect it to my Router (a Draytek Vigor 2200E)."
I am no expert on this stuff. I just installed a X-surf card in my desktop 4000 and with a lot of help I got it hooked up to a cable company :-) Just a note; it is nice to have boardband :-)
My point in this. At my first tried of installing the X-sruf card, I got error saying the card was not found I emailed Jens Schonfedl, he said:
"Most errors of this kind are caused by a dirty Zorro slot or zorro connector of he X-Surf itself. Clean both sides with pure alcohol and try again, it has helped a lot of other customers with the same problem. Never use contact sprays! Only pure alcohol helps, and an old toothbrush for the slot will also do a good job."
I am not sure if this would apply to you, but . . .
They other thing that was weird for me was which slot it was happy in? Again, it may have been a cleaner slot? Once I cleaned my slots and move the card to a different one, it was happy.
Just to note; I am using MiamiDX, so none of this may apply. Here is hoping that you get it resloved.
