Using a Planet ISDN card (winbond W6692CF) under suse

Post by Charles Blackbu » Sun, 21 May 2000 04:00:00



I have a planet ISDN card, and I would like to use it under linux.

I need help with configuring the hisax driver or whatever driver I should
use. the slhc & isdn modules load OK, but

the Card specifics are:

Winbond W6692CF
PCI Interface

lspci sees it as:

00:13.0 Network Controller: winbond Electronics Corp: Unknown device 6692
        Subsystem: Unknown device 144f:1707
        Flags: Medium devsel, irq 9
        Memory at e10000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
        ioports at 6600

Any help would be appreciated

Bear in mind that the driver for this card cannot share IRQs. You may
have to move it around to another PCI slot so that it can get a unique
IRQ line.

There are only 4 PCI IRQ lines (A, B, C, D). If you have more than 4
PCI devices (AGP cards and motherboard USB count as PCI) you're going
to end up with more than one card on an IRQ line. This is before the
PCI IRQs get mapped onto the ISA IRQ numbers. Having PCI cards share
IRQs is not a problem, but the software has to be able to cope with it.
The W6692 driver in the HiSax suite hasn't been written with IRQ
sharing in mind.

1. Dynamode TAS106H (Winbond W6692CF) ISDN Support?

Can anyone tell me if this card has been known to work with
Linux?

The card is a Dynamode PCI TAS106H 128k ISDN TA card. (rev E-02)
It has a Winbond W6692CF chip on it, which drives a standard 4-wire
ISDN S-Interface.  The card cost me a measly UK35+vat.

We already use these cards for dialup access to customer sites
running some form of NT RAS.  However, some of our newer customers
have some sort of router that needs to talk to another router;
so I thought I'd build myself a Linux router.  Can I use this card?

Regards,
Jim
