Old 3Com board settings

Old 3Com board settings

Post by K.L. Pauba [Kevi » Mon, 09 Jan 1995 10:23:12

I need some help with some networking boards that I got for free from
work.  The are 1984-vintage 3Comm EtherLink boards.  I have no
documentation or software so before I sent away to 3Com for this stuff
I'll give the 'net a try.

I'm told these are 10Mb 8-bit cards and they have both the AUI and BNC
connectors. On the board itself is the following information:

ASSY 34-0780 Rev D

48-0747-00 REV-C
SBC-1-2A 34-84

The interrupt jumpers are clearly marked but I am unable to decipher
the I/O Address jumpers.  Here how there set ("|" = jumper, "." = pin):


I also need a WFWG driver as I hope to use one of these in the kids' computer
and the other on my linux box (running samba).

If anyone has information on how I might get this working along with
some pointers to software I would greatly appreciate it.


1. X Windows and my old old old old video card

Hi. The card in question is an ISA ATI Graphics Ultra Pro (with the mach32
engine). The particular monitor that I'm using is an AST Vision 4L, and I
managed to root through the AST website (talk about counterintuitive!) so
I could get the horiz and vert scan lines etc. I can't seem to get X setup
right, when I run probe, it complains about a missing clocks line. Is
there any doc which can EXPLAIN xf86config? A man page helps, but getting
the theory fundas would be even nicer.

I'm pleasantly surprised at the level of support the linux community
provides. Also, being something of a DOS/Windows junkie ;=( in the past,
i'd appreciate it if I could be told where to get my hands on info that'll
help me migrate better.
