Subject:   Having trouble getting a 3com 3c507 Etherlink 16 to be recognized
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I have configured a used 3c507 as follows:

	I/O Base address	360 Hex
	Interrupt level		7
	Transceiver type	EXTERNAL
	RAM Base Address	0D0000 Hex
	RAM Size		64 KB
	ROM Base Address	0C6000 Hex
	ROM Size		0 KB
	Zero wait state		DISABLED
	Data mode		TURBO

It passes the 3COM Group 1 (internal) and Group 2 (bounce a packet off
the transceiver, I think) diagnostics.  I couldn't run Group 3
(client/server) since I don't have access to another 3com node to set
up as a server.

When I boot FreeBSD 2.0 off the hard disk in order to ftp the
distributions, the card does not get recognized.  I believe the "ie"
driver is the one that should be used.  Below is an excerpt from the
log which appears in full at the end of the mail.

	ie0: can't find shared memory
	ie0 not found at 0x360
	stray irq 7

What am I doing wrong?  Could the card be bad even though it passed
most of the diags?

Thank you.
