Can you describe how you are trying to configure your device?

If it shows up in nwam-manager (the default network GUI), you should
configure it the same way as an Ethernet device by selecting the
device in nwam-manager, switching to "Manual configuration", and
specifying an IPv4 and/or v6 address, rather than trying to bring up
the interface by hand. Alternatively, you can disable NWAM using the
procedure in nwamd(1) and use the legacy network configuration.

Is this the mem-free or mem-full InfiniHost III? These apparently need
different drivers.
