CONFIG_TIGON3: Broadcom Tigon3 support
I am using For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig 8. Matt 32 1 6. No IP addresses are assigned to either bcmm5703, which suggests a configuration issue. I have experimented with using the tg3 driver provided by SuSE, as well as the bcmx driver provided by IBM — we are using version 8. Unanswered question This question has not been answered yet. Is this an issue that has been identified with the xSeries and BCM chipset?
Normally a “live” distro can connect; I can’t–I tried a couple. The bcm503 can manually override the autoselected mode by adding media options to rc.
If you do want to update the firmware anyway, you’ll need to have the driver loaded first. Using jumbo frames can greatly improve performance for certain tasks, such as file transfers and data streaming. Let us linjx how it goes!
The link indicator of some gigabit network adapters will show a steady, amber light if the link speed is 1 Gbps. I don’t want to switch to any other Linux distro as Linuxx am an ancient dog, reluctent to learn new tricks, besides–this is the first time I had to install a driver of any kind Despite this, an updated bcmx driver should work properly, whether on SuSE Linux 9.
The driver failed to allocate memory for per-device instance information during initialization. The default value is 0 which disables UDP transmit checksum offloading.

This command will remove the driver for the network interfaces; only execute if your physically at the system EX: Find More Posts by rhbegin. I know nothing about Antix, but I was able to find a HowTo document describing how network connections are configured. With Linux and the Broadcom chipset I think you’ll need the tg3 driver, or possibly bnx2 but most likely tg3. The bge driver supports the following media options: If someone would know what kind of a wired router that would support Linux I should start looking for now, please do let me know; I spent a relative fortune on gcm5703 all kinds of network cards Can you confirm the model number of your on-board NIC by posting the output from lspci -v?

You should be able to use the NIC just fine once the driver is correctly loaded. Last edited by Ser Olmy; at
