LADR is the logical address filter you want the card to use when deciding to accept Ethernet packets with logical addressing. This article will focus on the Am79CA a. Yes, I did try that and it didn’t work. The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited. This content has been marked as final. The card maintains separate pointers internally.

You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ into each buffer i. Works for me too!!

AMD PCNET Family Ethernet Adapter (PCI) drivers for Windows XP x86

adapfer I have an old Windows NT4 partition that I wanted to set up as a virtual machine. At initialization, you would want the card to ‘own’ all the receive buffers so it can write new packets into them that it receives, then flip ownership to the driverand the driver to ‘own’ all the transmit buffers so it can write packets to be transmitted, then flip ownership to the driver.

Contents 1 Overview 2 Initialization and Register Access 2. Clicking on the Download Lcnet Visit Site button above will open a connection to a third-party site. Transmit interrupt mask – if set then an interrupt won’t be triggered when a packet has completed sending. Each of these then contains a pointer to the actual physical address of the memory used for the packet. Shut down Windows NT and power adapterr the virtual machine.

Receiving packets is normally done in your interrupt handler – the card will adaptrr an interrupt whenever it receives a packet and has written it to the receive buffer. Sexually explicit or offensive language. 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.

Thanks for the detailed instructions. However – you gave me an idea – to try to find the driver files in the vmware vmtools install. There are two ways of setting up the card registers: 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 ethernett the initialization bit.

You also need to specify the physical address MAC address you want the card to use. The next section will enable some interrupts on the card. Also I’m curious – etherneg Win2K, where does vmtools get the adapter driver from? If you do not wish to use logical addressing the defaultthen set these bytes to zero. In this article we will use the latter.

Ams need to run VMWare Tools. Correct Answers – 10 points. This page has been accessed 13, times. Thank You for Submitting a Reply,!


Actually I tried it twice – once with the path F: Thank You for Submitting Your Review,! Note that your submission may not appear immediately on our site.

Please enter a title. Interrupt done mask – if set then you aapter get an interrupt when the card has finished initializing. I did so and everything went smoothly and I can boot it as a virtual machine – and installed vmtools – but there is no AMD PCnet Ethernet adapter present.


Once ethenret, our staff will be notified and the comment will be reviewed. Once all the control registers are set up, you set bit 0 of CSR0, and then wait for initialization to be done. Note that interrupts can come from many sources other than new packets.

The card regularly scans all the transmit buffers looking for one it hasn’t sent, and then will transmit those it finds. You will need to allocate etehrnet 28 byte region of physical memory, aligned on a bit boundary.
