Net.ether1000 Problem!

Hello,

I have just installed a ISA NetGear E201c Ethernet card (which is meant to
be NE2000 compatible) in my PC. I’m running QNX 4.25 and no matter what I
try I can’t get Net.ether1000 to work. It seems unable to ‘find’ the card.

I’ve even tried to assign IRQ and memory addr myself e.g:

Net.ether1000 -i5 -p02C0 -vvv &

It just brings back ERROR CODES 10 and 4.
I know the MAC address - its on the card.
I’ve added it to netmap and ran netmap -f:

Further more when I run nettrap it just returns:

Slay Net

I have install other cards in other nodes before which have worked fine.
Please could someone help before I go insane.

Thanks in Advance,
Martin.

You did start Net before Net.ether1000, right? (You’ll get an error 4
otherwise. See netinfo -a for error code meanings.)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Try ‘-p 2c0’ - if this does not work, then it seems as though this card
is not 100% NE2000 compatible. Is it a 10Mb/s or a 10/100Mb/s card?

It just brings back ERROR CODES 10 and 4.

You understand that the above does NOT assign irq 5, ioport 2c0 to your
card, but in fact just tells Net.ether1000 what values you card has
already been assigned, either by jumper or PCI bios?

Ok, this is an ISA card – the question becomes, how is it configured
to take a particular irq & ioport – software config or jumpers on the
card? QNX will not do any software config, so it probably comes down
to jumpers. I’ve seen other cards where there are jumpers for irq &
ioport, then one more jumper, often missed, that switches between sw
and jumper configs – and this usually defaults to sw. Check that.

Also, as this is an ISA card, whatever irq it gets needs to be reserved
for ISA in your PCI bios, so the BIOS does not assign it to some other
PCI card.

If the card is software configurable you might have to boot
DOS and use the utility software that came with the card to
change it’s config. I’ve got a few cards without jumpers that
need to be set up that way.
