Hmmm, might be something specific to the Madge card itself, I've just
tested it on my IBM PCI (olympic) card and it picks the traffic up fine. I
know the olympic driver does promiscuous mode properly, not sure if the
Madge does.

I see you're using the old 2.31 Madge drivers, have you tried the newer
2.4 drivers ?
