All times are GMT After 10 packets, the console would display a PCI bus error. The driver makes a lot of noise about this condition because the author considers it a manufacturing defect. Comment 14 Red Hat Bugzilla Which is fine since Im not looking to run a dhcp server. If you see this message but the driver continues to function normally, the message can probably be ignored. The mediaopt option can also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

This message may be printed during driver initialization on slower machines. The 3cB adapters have built-in autonegotiation logic mapped onto the MII for compatibility with previous drivers. If you don’t see 3c59x in there, try “modprobe 3c59x”.

The time now is Enabling bus-master transmits and whole-frame receives.

If homework dosn’t eat an entire day. Some operating systems place the 3cB in low power mode when shutting down, and some PCI BIOSes fail to bring the chip out of this state before configuring it. On and old system try vecterslackor debian 3c59x is the module I think for that card. You may have to go looking for it including on a diskette or from 3Com’s site.


In rare instances, this bit may not clear.

Ok, I’ve rooted around with the search page for about an hour now, and now its time to post But let me test it. Note that registered members see fewer ads, and ContentLink is completely disabled once you log in.

– Red Hat Linux Enterprise WS does not work with 3com 3cTX cards

Working with a machine at my old job I was trying to bring a machine with S9 on the network. I installed a fresh copy of Slack 9. Most live cd’s require mb of ram to work. Yeah, if you’re setting out to learn linux networking then you’ll probably be happier in a graphical environment.

If that now shows your card, cheer for a while, and run “netconfig” to set it up for use with DHCP. The mediaopt option can also be used liunx select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes. The 3cB loses all of its PCI configuration in the D3 state, so if the BIOS does not set it back to full power mode in time, it will not be able to configure it correctly.

New to Linux, Need help with NIC – 3COM 3c905-tx

I’ll give that a shot tommrow when I have some free time. By liinux our community you will have the ability to post topics, receive our newsletter, use the advanced search, subscribe to threads linu access many other special features.

I removed the 3cb, and placed another one in, same problem. As for the nic, list all the modules currently loaded with “lsmod”. The original system works fine, with other NIC cards in it.
