At1700 driver broken?????

At1700 driver broken?????

Post by Ryan Matteso » Wed, 01 Jul 1998 04:00:00



I have been gettng repeated errors with my at1700 ethernet adaptor. The
messages from klogd are:

Jun 30 09:06:59 oscar kernel: eth0: transmit timed out with status 0000,
network cable problem?
Jun 30 09:06:59 oscar kernel: eth0: timeout registers: 4000 8182 41f6
e85a 6c20 0001 8000 0001.

This keeps hapeening over and over again and in the mean time I cannot
send/receive data!!! The network cable is fine I swapped my Sparc5 cable
with the one I had attached to my linux box. Also are At1500 or Kingston
PCI cards supported?? They are not on the linux.org/redhat.com HCL BUT
there is alaways usually someone porting something....Thanks for any
info

1. How mature is Allied Telesyn AT1700 driver?


   But when I tried to configure the Linux kernel to include the AT1700 driver,
   I noticed that it was an alpha driver.  This makes me wonder: will this driver
   be OK?  I think I'm stuck with the AT1700 cards, but I want to know if I'm
   doomed forever to have Ethernet problems, or should the drivers be OK?

Well, you can read the kernel change summaries yourself at
<http://www.crynwr.com/kchanges>, but there haven't been many changes
to the AT1700 driver over the past year.  That either means that no
one is using it (not likely) or it works fine.
