problems initializing tr0 (3C619) - "Token Ring timeout" & "Device not configured"

problems initializing tr0 (3C619) - "Token Ring timeout" & "Device not configured"

Post by Xenophon Fenderson the Carbon » Tue, 22 Aug 2000 04:00:00



I have a 3Com 3C619 installed in my OBSD box:

tr0 at isa0 port 0xa20/4 iomem 0xd8000/16384 irq 9
tr0: address 00:60:8c:27:bc:70 ring speed 4 Mbps

(The auto-detected config matches what 3Com's adapter diagnostics
report.)

The card reports the following after boot:

# ifconfig tr0
tr0: flags=22<BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS> mtu 2002
        media: TokenRing DB9/4Mbit EarlyTokenRelease,SourceRouting,AllRoutes

When I try to bring the interface up, I get the following errors:

# ifconfig tr0 inet 216.2.120.78 216.2.120.71 netmask 255.255.255.248 media 4UTP up
Aug 21 22:51:21 edgar /bsd: tr0: not multicast capable, IPv6 not enabled
Aug 21 22:51:21 edgar /bsd: tr0: not multicast capable, IPv6 not enabled
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured
Aug 21 22:51:51 edgar /bsd: Token Ring timeout
Aug 21 22:51:51 edgar /bsd: Token Ring timeout
Aug 21 22:51:51 edgar /bsd: tr0: not multicast capable, IPv6 not enabled
Aug 21 22:51:51 edgar /bsd: tr0: not multicast capable, IPv6 not enabled

Even without "media 4UTP", the interface won't go up, and I always get
the "Token Ring timeout" message.

I've verified that the ring is not open.

I've also verified that the card is operating correctly---it passes
3Com's adapter diagnostics:

08-22-00,02:26:40,0,3C619,I,60,Adapter close completed

I think I have one other 3C619 with which I can test (in case it is a
hardware issue), and as I recall the Madge cards aren't currently
supported by BSD (I have boxes full of Madge cards).

Does anyone have suggestions on what I should try?
