3COM 3C905B FAST ETHERLINK XL DRIVER

In rare instances, this bit may not clear. This message may be printed during driver initialization on slower machines. If you see this message but the driver continues to function normally, the message can probably be ignored. The mediaopt option can also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes. Note that this condition only occurs when warm booting from another operating system. The 3cB loses all of its PCI configuration in the D3 state, so if the BIOS does not set it back to full power mode in time, it will not be able to configure it correctly.

The 3cB loses all of its PCI configuration in the D3 state, so if the BIOS does not set it back to full power mode in time, it will not be able to configure it correctly.

If you power down your system prior to booting FreeBSD, the card should be configured correctly. Some operating systems place the 3cB in low power mode when shutting down, and some PCI BIOSes fail to bring the chip out of this state before etherlonk it.

Fast Etherlink XL adapters such as the 3cTX and 3cB-TX are capable of 10 or Mbps data rates in either full or half duplex and can be manually configured for any supported mode or automatically negotiate the highest possible mode with a link partner. If you see this message at boot time and the driver fails to attach the device as a network interface, c3905b will have to perform second warm boot to have the device properly configured.

Note that this option is only available with the 3c and 3cB adapters with external PHYs or built-in autonegotiation logic.

Some commands issued to the 3c90x ASIC take time to complete: In rare instances, this bit may not clear. It is probably safe to ignore them. Note that this condition only occurs when warm booting from another operating system.

To avoid getting caught in an infinite wait loop, the driver only polls the bit for a finite number of times before giving up, at which point it issues this message. The driver tries to detect this condition and bring the adapter back to the D0 full power state, but this may not be enough to return the driver to a fully operational condition.

The mediaopt option can ethsrlink be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

Neither the xl driver nor any other FreeBSD driver supports this modem. The 3cB adapters 3f905b built-in autonegotiation logic mapped onto the MII for compatibility with previous drivers.

The xl driver supports the following media options: The driver makes a lot of noise about this condition because the author considers it a manufacturing defect. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig 8.

This warning egherlink appear when using the driver on some Dell Latitude docking stations with built-in 3cTX adapters. Note that the baseTX media type is only available if supported by the adapter. This message may be printed during driver initialization on slower machines. The xl driver supports the following media types: For whatever the reason, the ‘MII available’ bit in the media options register on this particular equipment is not set, even though it should be the 3cTX always uses an external PHY transceiver.
