Difficulty running 100BT @ Full Duplex with 3c905B-TX

Difficulty running 100BT @ Full Duplex with 3c905B-TX

Post by Tomm » Sat, 26 Jun 1999 04:00:00

Is anyone out there have a linux box with (2) 3c905B-TX's with one running

trouble with the full duplex flaking out or not even loading at boot up.  I
have no trouble at half and 100BT.



1. 3COM Fast Etherlink XL 10/100Base-TX (3c905B-TX)

Hi Everyone,

I have some trouble configuring a 3Com Fast Etherlink XL 10/100Base-TX with the
3c905B-TX with Linux. The driver recognizes it and configures it and eth0 is up
and running but nothing goes through to the network or comes out of it. Physical
connection is there, the lights are on. But not data gets transmitted or no data
comes throught it. 3c59x driver for linux identifies it correctly as 3c905B
"cyclone" and uses the io port 0x1000 and irq 10.

Did anyone come across this problem? If you have a solution can you please post it?
I would really appreciate that.

Thank you!
