Your problem may be the Xircom card itself.

Let me say at this point that I tend to be a staunch "one function per card" 
believer.  That being said, we had these cards at my last job an couldn't get 
them to work reliably at all, even under Windoze with the company supplied 
drivers and all.

My advice-- be happy with a working PCMCIA modem (it is PCMCIA, isn't it?) 
and get a reliable, name-brand ethernet card.
