I have an Intel D865GLCL with 82801EB/ER, originally identified as 0x8086, =
NetBSD 1.6.2 showed the device as Not Configured, so I tried 1.6.2_stable f=
This changed the EEPROM and now the card doesn't work at all.
I found Problem Report 22120:=20
And have read all of the posts related to 'NetBSD ruined my NIC' from here:=
Including those that say 'Resolved'
I tried the idea of |=3D 0x02 in i82557.c but it didn't fix the MAC address=
This worked for someone:
using the 82562EZ/82551ER/82541ER Design Guide
But I am not sure exactly what to do, to make a kernel that will fix the pr=
oblem. Especially with the fact that this chipset is slightly different.
I can't find any Intel utilities that will reprogram the EEPROM.
How can I be sure that the currently _stable versions of NetBSD won't cause=
the same problem again on other Intel boards. Looking at CVS, it appears=
that i82557.c still has the same code in it.
Or is there somewhere else that it would be disabled now? Exactly what vers=
ion of NetBSD would be safe.
