You will need to allocate a 28 byte region of physical memory, aligned on a bit boundary. To actually set adaptet the card registers, we provide it with the address of our initialization structure by writing the low bits of its address to CSR1 and the high bits to CSR2.

Do not be deterred! A further important etyernet exists in the IO space called the reset register. We simply fail and return. It really worked for me as well. You probably want to set it to zero enable transmit and receive functionality, receive broadcast packets and those sent this physical address, disable promiscuous mode.

Yes, Adapfer did try that and it didn’t work. You can do this by either waiting for an interrupt eghernet you didn’t disable the initialization done interrupt in CSR3 or by polling until CSR0 bit 8 is set. We will flesh out the interrupt handler later, but you should install the interrupt handler here as otherwise you will get crashes due to unhandled interrupts. I too will need to manually install the driver from AMD’s site.


Note that if you want to efhernet for an interrupt you will also need to set bit 6 of CSR0 or interrupts won’t be generated you will need to enable this anyway to get notification of received packets, so it makes sense to set it at the same time as the initialization bit.

Works for xmd too!! In this article we will use the latter. You also need to specify the physical address MAC address you want the card to use. After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled.

I then tried once more adding the AMD PCnet adapter but pointing the “Have Disk” path to the above path – and bingo – it took it, and on adpater the device was there and started and working. Flaming or offending other users.

It will automatically install drivers and says to restart the os. The card regularly scans all the transmit buffers looking for one it hasn’t sent, and then will transmit those it finds.

You don’t have JavaScript enabled. You need to parse ACPI tables etc. There are other bits in CSR0 than can be set depending on how you set up interrupt masks in CSR3 and additionally other bits in CSR4 that can signal interrupts although these are usually masked out on reset.

Also I’m curious – on Win2K, where does vmtools get the adapter driver from? Just need to run VMWare Tools. You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ into each buffer i. Once initialization has completed, you can finally start the card. It has built-in support for CRC checks and can automatically pad short packets to the minimum Ethernet length.

I have the same question Show 0 Likes 0. Depending on your design this may be preferable. Once all the control registers are set up, you set bit 0 of CSR0, and then wait for initialization to be done.

Finally, once all our ring buffers are set up, we need to give their addresses to the card. Is it somewhere buried in the vmware distrib and I could get it off that?

The next section will enable some interrupts on the card. This article will focus on the Am79CA a.
