Receive descriptor zero byte count buffer interpreted as available bytes. 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. If this is cleared, it means the driver ‘owns’ that particular ring buffer entry. And this chip bug might be the reason. C chips have a bug which causes garbage to be inserted in front of the received packet.

If amr do not wish to use logical addressing the defaultthen set these bytes to zero. You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ into each buffer i.

Features a Time-domain reflectometer TDR with a granularity of 30 meter. This page was last modified on 11 Juneat Statements consisting only of original research should be removed. Contents 1 Overview 2 Initialization and Register Access 2.

C chips have a bug which causes garbage to be inserted in front of the received packet. Receive descriptor zero byte count pcneet interpreted as available bytes. 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.

Note that interrupts can come from many sources other than new packets. You can do this by either waiting for an interrupt if iio didn’t disable the initialization done interrupt in CSR3 or by polling until CSR0 bit 8 is set. You will need to allocate a 28 byte region of physical memory, aligned on a bit boundary.

This page was last edited on 17 Aprilat 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.

It has built-in support for CRC checks and can automatically pad short packets to the minimum Ethernet length.

Of course, this precludes multicast support. The card regularly scans all the transmit buffers looking for one it hasn’t sent, and then will transmit those it finds. November Learn how and when to remove this template message.

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. And you may want to set bit 11 of CSR4 which automatically pads Ethernet packets which pdnet too short to be at least 64 bytes.


Depending on your design this may be preferable.

Views Read View source View am. But the “Table B Networking hardware Integrated circuits. Each of these then contains a pnet to the actual physical address of the memory used for the packet. 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.

You need to parse ACPI tables etc. This page has been accessed 13, times.


No capability for transmit buffer byte count of zero. You probably want to set it to zero enable transmit and receive functionality, receive broadcast packets and those sent this physical address, disable promiscuous mode. External loopback on a live network may cause reception of invalid loopback failure indications.

You also need a simple way of incrementing oii pointer and wrapping back to the start if necessary.
