Checksum error with 3com card

Checksum error with 3com card

Post by Alexander Smondyre » Thu, 07 May 1998 04:00:00

I am trying to get my 3c900 card work properly. I got an updated
driver 3c59x.c and recompiled and reinstalled the modules. Then
during the boot I am getting a message "Checksum Error ..." on
3c59x driver. My card works but I can not get further than our
router. At the same time the card works fine under Win95, which
makes me think that I am doing something wrong with card drivers.
Any suggestions?
- Thanks.


1. Checksum problem: 2.4.19-pre3 w/ 3COM Card + Wrong card model

The error below comes from enabling ERPOM boot on the network card. When this
is disabled the Checksum error goes away.

3c59x: Donald Becker and others.
02:05.0: 3Com PCI 3c982 Dual Port Server Cyclone at 0xa400. Vers LK1.1.16
 ***INVALID CHECKSUM 002f*** <6>Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff

This model is the wrong detected card.

It should be the 3C980C-TXM 10/100
