There are two ways of setting up the card registers: I tried this using two different sources for the adapter driver, and re-installing vmtools with “repair” option after each one, and neither worked:. INF – and it showed up in F: In this article we will use the latter. MODE provides various functions to control how the card works with regards to sending and receiving packets, and running loopback tests.

I too will need to manually install the driver from AMD’s site. This means you should be able use the original bit software on these members of the PCnet family of single-chip Ethernet controllers.

I see this problem mentioned in one of the vmware docs: Note that interrupts can come from many am other than new packets. This page was last edited on 17 Aprilat Thanks for the detailed instructions. INF not found”, and then with the path F: I have the same question Ajd 0 Likes 0.

Please turn JavaScript back on and reload this page. That I could get from you? 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.

To actually set up the card registers, we provide it with the address of our initialization structure by writing the low bits of its address to CSR1 and pcndt high bits to CSR2. Of course, this precludes multicast support. We simply fail and return. It really worked for me as well.

You don’t have JavaScript enabled.

Is it somewhere buried in the vmware distrib and I could get it off that? You will need to allocate a 28 byte region of physical memory, aligned on a bit boundary. If this is cleared, it means the driver ‘owns’ caed particular ring buffer entry. This article will focus on the Am79CA a.

After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit ame CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled.

You can not post a blank message.

You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ xard each buffer i. Yes, I did try that and it didn’t work.


I was struggling for this issue since weeks. About This site Joining Editing help Recent changes.

No capability for transmit buffer byte count of zero. Others may find this URL useful: And this chip bug might be the reason.


If you do not wish to use logical addressing the defaultthen set these bytes to zero. Just need to run VMWare Tools. Pncet card regularly scans all the transmit buffers looking for one it hasn’t sent, and then will transmit those it finds.

Actually I tried it twice – once with the path F: I then tried once more adding xard AMD PCnet adapter but pointing the “Have Disk” path to the above path – and bingo – it took it, and on reboot the device was there and started and working.

You need to parse ACPI tables etc. A further important register exists in the IO space called the reset register.
