- Caveats:
-
- I am not sure if 100BaseTX daughterboards (for those cards which
- support such things) will work. I haven't had any solid evidence
- either way.
-
- However, if a card supports 100BaseTx without requiring an add
- on daughterboard, it should work with 100BaseTx.
-
- The "Netelligent 10 T/2 PCI UTP/Coax" (b012) device is untested,
- but I do not expect any problems.
-
-
-II. Driver Options
- 1. You can append debug=x to the end of the insmod line to get
- debug messages, where x is a bit field where the bits mean
- the following:
-
- 0x01 Turn on general debugging messages.
- 0x02 Turn on receive debugging messages.
- 0x04 Turn on transmit debugging messages.
- 0x08 Turn on list debugging messages.
-
- 2. You can append aui=1 to the end of the insmod line to cause
- the adapter to use the AUI interface instead of the 10 Base T
- interface. This is also what to do if you want to use the BNC
- connector on a TLAN based device. (Setting this option on a
- device that does not have an AUI/BNC connector will probably
- cause it to not function correctly.)
-
- 3. You can set duplex=1 to force half duplex, and duplex=2 to
- force full duplex.
-
- 4. You can set speed=10 to force 10Mbs operation, and speed=100
- to force 100Mbs operation. (I'm not sure what will happen
- if a card which only supports 10Mbs is forced into 100Mbs
- mode.)
-
- 5. You have to use speed=X duplex=Y together now. If you just
- do "insmod tlan.o speed=100" the driver will do Auto-Neg.
- To force a 10Mbps Half-Duplex link do "insmod tlan.o speed=10
- duplex=1".
-
- 6. If the driver is built into the kernel, you can use the 3rd
- and 4th parameters to set aui and debug respectively. For
- example:
-
- ether=0,0,0x1,0x7,eth0
-
- This sets aui to 0x1 and debug to 0x7, assuming eth0 is a
- supported TLAN device.
-
- The bits in the third byte are assigned as follows:
-
- 0x01 = aui
- 0x02 = use half duplex
- 0x04 = use full duplex
- 0x08 = use 10BaseT
- 0x10 = use 100BaseTx
-
- You also need to set both speed and duplex settings when forcing
- speeds with kernel-parameters.
- ether=0,0,0x12,0,eth0 will force link to 100Mbps Half-Duplex.
-
- 7. If you have more than one tlan adapter in your system, you can
- use the above options on a per adapter basis. To force a 100Mbit/HD
- link with your eth1 adapter use:
-
- insmod tlan speed=0,100 duplex=0,1
-
- Now eth0 will use auto-neg and eth1 will be forced to 100Mbit/HD.
- Note that the tlan driver supports a maximum of 8 adapters.
-
-
-III. Things to try if you have problems.
- 1. Make sure your card's PCI id is among those listed in
- section I, above.
- 2. Make sure routing is correct.
- 3. Try forcing different speed/duplex settings
