Freebsd ver 4.0 and 4.3   the Rev A-1 board is recognized (pci) perfect.

the Rev D2 board is a PIA.. I did manange to foolaround with the
/usr/src/sys/pci/if_vrreg.h file and get it

to been seen but then the MAC addr comes back all zeros ??

is there anyway to get this new board to work..

I did note on the rev D the  Vendor ID = 1106  the product 1186   1300
0200

on the old one ( rev A ) the product something like  3043..

anyhelp would be great..

this took me way to long to find..

code fixes ?? any tricks ??

Regards
Terry

I don`t anything about revisions and what-not of the card, but I had the same
problem with that card (about the MAC coming as all 0s), and the "solution"
to the problem is to power down your machine, and turn it back on, and it
should get the address correct. Or, you could just apply the following patch
and recompile your kernel:

----- cut here ---------------------------------
--- if_vr.c-dist        Thu May 10 16:04:09 2001

        }

        /* Reset the adapter. */
+       VR_CLRBIT(sc, 0x83, 0x3);
        vr_reset(sc);

        /*
----- end here ---------------------------------

I stole the code from a bug report from a long time ago, but I cannot seem
to remember where it is. If you want to know where the bug report is or the
original patch, mail me up and I`ll find it for you.
Hope this helps

1. Which driver for nic D-Link 10/100 model DFE-530TX REV-A3

Hello everybody,

I try to get the RIGHT nic driver for a D-Link 10/100 model DFE-530TX REV-A3
I can see 2 chips on that PCI board.

1) DL10030A (is it a D-Link proprietary chip ?)
2) LSI  L80225/B   T 0018   WHC18003

So, which driver I must use ?

1) RealTek RTL8129/8139
2) Tulip
3) VIA Rhine (VT86C100A and 3043)

I have not seen info about this board (rev A3) on www.scyld.com

I run the kernel version 2.2.16

Thank in advance for your help
