I’m working with Workstation 4 and unfortunately the windows. You can not post a blank message. 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. Personal tools Log in. The next section will enable some interrupts on the card. Actually I tried it twice – once with the path F: I see this problem mentioned in one of the vmware docs:

LADR is the logical address filter you want the card to use when deciding to accept Ethernet packets with logical addressing. Please type your message and try again. Interrupt done mask – if set then you won’t get an interrupt when the card has finished initializing.

AMD PCnet-PCI II Ethernet Adapter (AM79CA)

I’m working with Workstation 4 and adapteer the windows. I then tried once more adding the 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.

See the spec description of CSR15 for further details. During normal initialization and use of the cards, the CSRs are used exclusively.

If it is set, it means the card owns it and the driver should not touch the entire entry. Do not be deterred! You will need to allocate a 28 byte region of physical memory, aligned on adaptrr bit boundary. This content has been marked as final.


There are other bits in CSR0 than can be set depending on how you set up interrupt masks in CSR3 and additionally other bits in CSR4 that can signal interrupts although these are usually masked out on reset.

Click Continue to finish installing the driver. The card cpi two ring buffers to store packets: That I could get from you? You also need a simple way of incrementing the pointer and wrapping back to the start if necessary. You can not post a blank message.

INF – and it showed up in F: Once all the control registers are set up, you set bit 0 of CSR0, and then wait for initialization to be done. Also I’m curious – on Win2K, where does vmtools get the adapter driver from? Your advice helped alot.

Correct Answers – 10 points. After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled.

Go to original post. I tried this using two different sources for the adapter driver, and re-installing vmtools with “repair” option after each one, and neither worked:.


Once initialization has completed, you can finally start pcet card. Yes, I did try that and it didn’t work. We simply fail and return. Receiving packets is normally done in your interrupt handler – the card will signal an interrupt whenever it receives a packet and has written it to the receive buffer.

This article will focus on the Am79CA a. Depending on your design this may be preferable. 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. Is it somewhere buried in the vmware distrib and I could get it off that? Or is there any other ethernet adapater that I could get working in a virtual WinNT4? 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.
