Boca phone number? PCI Ethernet card

Boca phone number? PCI Ethernet card

Post by Dave Kenne » Fri, 23 Dec 1994 03:20:56



I understand that Boca makes a PCI ethernet card using the AMD
79c970/79c974 chips.  Anyone have a phone number for them?  

Thanks!

Donald Becker clued me into "New NMI/Computer Mail Order (CMO)" and
eventually via the 800 operator and others, I found the numbers:

New NMI - CMO           (800)233-8950   Computer Mail Order
Boca Research           (407)997-6227   Ethernet PCI

The PCI card is $99 from Boca Research (BocaRS on NASDAQ :) and is $69
from New NMI.  The part number is BEN1PI.

1. BOCA PCI Ethernet card

After reading the "Ethernet-HOWTO", I purchased a boca PCI ethernet
card. The card has the PCnet-PCI chip on it and the HOWTO implies
that it should work with linux. I rebuilt the kernel with AT1500/NE2100
support enabled, but no go. Poking around with the DOS packet driver,
the card seems to want to make it's I/O address to be 0xD100. After
adding this to the probe list in the "lance.c" file, the card appears to be
found, but the driver hangs just after printing the ethernet physical
address. The PCI slot is a "master" and the IRQ is set to 15, the trigger
is "level".

Any clues?
