After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled. Clicking on the Download Now Visit Site button above will open a connection to a third-party site. Interrupt done mask – if set then you won’t get an interrupt when the card has finished initializing.

During normal initialization and use of the cards, the CSRs are used exclusively.

Note that your submission may not appear immediately on our site. Your message has been reported and will be reviewed by our staff. 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 pcnett driver to ‘own’ all the transmit buffers so it can write packets to be transmitted, then flip ownership to the driver.

This page was last modified on 11 Juneat LADR is the logical address filter you want the card to use when deciding to accept Ethernet packets with logical addressing.

Thank You for Submitting Your Review,! You will need to allocate a 28 byte region of physical memory, aligned on a bit boundary.


Finally, once all our ring buffers are set up, we need to give their addresses to the card. Views Read View source View history.

We simply fail and return. You need to parse ACPI tables etc. Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review. You probably want this as it is far easier to pcmet for this situation which only occurs once anyway. Sending packets involves simply writing the packet details to pcnrt next available transmit buffer, then flipping the ownership for the particular ring buffer entry to the card.


See the spec description of CSR15 for further details. If you do not wish to use logical addressing the defaultthen set these bytes to zero.

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. MODE provides various functions to control how the card works with regards to sending and receiving packets, and running loopback tests.


This article will focus on the Am79CA a. You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ into each buffer i.

Interrupt done mask – if set then you won’t get an interrupt when the card has finished initializing. Transmit interrupt mask – if set then an interrupt won’t be triggered when a packet has completed sending.

You also need to specify the physical address MAC address you want the card to use. You can do this by either waiting for an etherent if you didn’t disable the initialization done interrupt in CSR3 or by polling until CSR0 bit 8 is set. Personal tools Log in.

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.

Thank You for Etbernet a Reply,! Each of these then contains a pointer to the actual physical address of the memory used for the packet.

If it is set, it means the card owns it and the driver should not touch the entire entry.
