The workaround is to ignore packets with an invalid destination address garbage will usually not match. External loopback on a live network may cause reception of invalid loopback failure indications. Note that if you want to wait 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. And you may want to set bit 11 of CSR4 which automatically pads Ethernet packets which are too short to be at least 64 bytes. Views Read Edit View history. We simply fail and return.

AMD PCnet-FAST III Ethernet Adapter (AM79C)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Views Read View source View history. A further important register exists in the IO space called the reset register.

If you want to keep the current one, you will need to first read it from the EPROM of the card it is exposed as the first 6 bytes of the IO space that the registers are in. After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or Pxnet before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled. If a new packet has been signalled then CSR0 bit 10 will be set.


Archived from the original PDF on This means you should be able use the original bit software on these members of the PCnet family of single-chip Ethernet controllers.

Once initialization has completed, you can finally start the card. By using this pcbet, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Statements consisting only of original research should be removed. You pwcket want to set it to zero enable transmit and receive functionality, receive broadcast packets and those sent this physical address, disable promiscuous mode.

pcket The card maintains separate pointers internally. Transmit interrupt mask – if set then an interrupt won’t be triggered when a packet has completed sending. Articles that may contain original research from November All articles that may contain original research All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from July This page has been accessed 13, times.

Sending packets involves simply writing the packet details to the next available transmit buffer, then flipping the ownership for the particular ring buffer entry to the card.

This page was last edited on 17 Aprilat These pcnst are not likely to require modifications of any device driver. This section possibly contains original research. The card regularly scans all the transmit buffers looking for one packte hasn’t sent, and then will transmit those it finds. Interrupt done mask – if set then you won’t get an interrupt when the card has finished initializing.


External loopback on a live network may cause reception of invalid loopback failure indications. Each of these then contains a pointer to the actual physical address of the memory used for the packet. About This site Joining Editing wmd Recent changes. 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 the high bits to CSR2. In this article we will use the latter.

It has built-in support for CRC checks and can automatically pad short packets to the minimum Ethernet length. Finally, once all our ring buffers are set up, we need to give their addresses to the card. LADR is the logical address filter you want the card to use when deciding to accept Ethernet packets with logical addressing.

You can do this by either waiting for an interrupt if you didn’t disable the initialization done interrupt in CSR3 or by polling until CSR0 bit 8 is set.
