I just upgraded my main server from 2.1R to 2.1.5R. This PC has an
on-board AMD 1500T Ethernet interface, which worked fine with the lnc
network interface driver in 2.1R. Under 2.1.5R I get LOTS of messages
like "Receive CRC error", "Missed packet -- no receive buffer", and
"last message repeated XXXX times". It _seemed_ to be working OK, but I
got nervous and stuck in an NE2000.
This is an ISA PC with 32 MB RAM. Could this be a problem with bounce
buffers (or lack of them, as a quick scan of if_lnc.c doesn't seem to
indicate that it uses them)? Did the lnc driver just get munged somehow
In case I have to make the NIC change permanent, what's the preferred
ISA NIC these days?
