At least one supports only chained DMA descriptors most support both chained descriptors and contiguously allocated fixed size rings. They are the default or reference drivers for the chip-set. The interface will operate in half duplex mode if this media option is not specified. Note that the baseTX media type may not be available on certain Intel adapters which support 10Mbps media attachments only.

A board or card manufacture often will use the “reference” drivers as a template for their own specific drivers.

Once you rate any answer as acceptable, you must close the question. I believe that there are so many options involved in implementing the chip that a “reference” driver would be of very limited function. The chips appear to upload several kilobytes of garbage data along with the received frame data, dirtying several RX buffers instead of just the expected one.
I think you’re right that the card may not have been made by Intel though the chip was. Looking over the data at Intel’s web site, the was designed for use on CardBus based mobile Ethernet adapters. Some operating systems place the controller in low power mode when shutting down, and some PCI BIOSes fail to bring the chip out of this state before configuring it. From there those features pop up.

The dc driver detects this condition and will salvage the frame; however, it incurs a serious performance penalty in the process. Anyhow, got your rec. The dc driver programs 82c and 82c PNIC chips to use the store and forward setting for the transmit start threshold by default.
Do not post advertisements, offensive material, profanity, or personal attacks. The controller loses dsc 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.
All of the clone chips are based on the design with various modifications. All of supported chipsets have the same general register layout, DMA descriptor format and method of operation.
The transmitter works but the receiver tends to produce many unexplained errors leading to very poor overall performance.
Re: DEC x based network card list
Take a close look at the circuit board itself. You must be logged in to TR with the same user account that you asked the question from.
At least one supports only chained DMA descriptors deec support both chained descriptors and contiguously allocated fixed size rings. BUGS The Edc application notes claim that in order to put the chips in normal operation, the driver must write a certain magic number into the CSR16 register. Intel does not provide “reference” drivers for it’s network interface chips.
Note that this condition only occurs when warm booting from another operating system. Apparently, the add comment feature is broken at the moment.
Please remember to be considerate of other members. These are what Intel’s chip-set drivers are.
Re: DEC 21143x based network card list
I have tried the Intel web site but couldn’t find one for NT4. A board or card manufacture often will use the “reference” drivers as a template for their own specific drivers.
Some support only MII media attachments. Back to Windows Forum 8 total posts Page 1 of 1. As to the driver, I must conclude that you have a third party network adapter using the Intel chip. Reset Post Submit Post. All other modes on the A seem to work correctly.
