FC2 dropping 80% of packets on laptop

I have a Sony PCG-630 w a 3com 575BT pcmcia card that worked well in FC1, I upgraded to FC2 and now networking has become unusable.

It is on a fixed IP

It drops between 50 to 100% of packets when pinging to the laptop or from the laptop. It pings its own IP OK The right modules seem to be loaded.

The same laptop performs correctly in Windows.

fixed by reinstall

I just made a clean reinstall and it works perfectly now.

I suppose upgrading left some cruft in place that interfered with either the pcmcia or IRQ system, who knows
