NIC Setting

Thanks for the replies of my previous posting.

I actully added the following line in /etc/system file:

set bge:bge_adv_autoneg_cap=0

and reboot the system.

But the "ndd -get /dev/bge0 adv_autoneg_cap" still returns "1".

I also tried using the command line:

ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_autoneg_cap 0

But the "ndd -get /dev/bge0 adv_autoneg_cap" still returns "1".

Why does this happen? Thanks for advise!

I havent read the earlier parts of this thread, but setting the autoneg on
its own is not enough, if you read infodoc 77437 from sunsolve you can see
that the adv_autoneg_cap is both a reporting and setting value.

get that document off sunsolve and follwo it, it says how to set and read
the bge interface in a lot of ways, all official :-D

The documented in question does indicate that you CANT use the /etc/system
to configure the bge interfaces btw, only the ndd commands AND the
bge.conf file

so...

I cut this form the document...

3.4 Dynamic Changes Using ndd

To illustrate a dynamic change let's assume that we want to force bge0 to
operate at 100 Mbit/s full duplex. In order to do this we would need to
run the following commands.

# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_1000fdx_cap 0
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_1000hdx_cap 0
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_100fdx_cap 1
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_100fdx_cap 0
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_10fdx_cap 0
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_10fdx_cap 0
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/bge0 adv_autoneg_cap 0

Any changes made at the command line in this manner will be lost if the
system is rebooted.

You need to set all of the parameters if your setting autoneg_cap to 0
otherwise its undefined what might happen.

Hope that helps, for static changes you use the bge.conf file, this is
described in the document.

1. Longshine 8634 NIC Settings

        I own a Longshine NIC (model: LCS-8634-TBA combo card (UTP, BNC,
AUI)) that I have been unable to set properly.  The card is jumper-set,
and seems to be working (i.e., detects link).  However, there are a few
jumpers that I cannot figure out.  Does anyone have one of these or know
of any way to get in contact with Longshine?  

                                                TIA - James Byers
