Problems with Macronix 98715 NIC

Hey:

Anyone had any successes with getting a 10/100 Macronix 98715 NIC to
work under linux?  Essentially, my card doesn't detect the Ethernet
carrier.

I'm not sure if I have the correct drivers.

Thx
Keith

It should use the tulip driver.
Make sure that you get the most recent version of the driver as some
of the older ones will not work with these nics. I have one right now,
 and am using the v0.91g driver, works great.

1. Macronix 98715 net card

Hi,

I have a network card Cnet with a macronix chip 98715.

I use kernel 2.2.1 with tulip.c v0.89H

When i load tulip module the link led switch off on the card

when i diag the card with tulip_diag, here are the results :



Index #1: Found a Macronix 98725 PMAC adapter at 0xfc00.
Macronix 98725 PMAC Tulip chip registers at 0xfc00:

 Port selection is 10mpbs-serial, half-duplex.
 Transmit stopped, Receive stopped, half-duplex.
  The Rx process state is 'Stopped'.
  The Tx process state is 'Stopped'.
  The transmit threshold is 72.

Rx and TX are stopped.... why ?

i tried all module options.... nothing !

Should i change the net card ?

Thanks
