I can not answer 100% but I guess a 3COM ISA NIC can't be installed on an XP computer. This can conflict with cards (usually multiport serial cards or "32 bit" sound cards) unwisely jumpered to be in that I/O area.

Patent 5,307,459 with a priority date of 1992-07-28. As part of printing the message, it check the interrupt status again. Replaces a few numeric constants with symbolic ones.

It is model 3c509B-TP. DCC parallel for a large file.There's a chance that a relative has an old copy of Win 98SE2 that will become mine.I can use the 4550 without breaking my real stuff.This HARDWARE The ep driver supports Ethernet adapters based on the 3Com 3C5x9 Etherlink III Parallel Tasking chipset, including: · 3Com 3C1 CF · 3Com 3C509-TP, 3C509-BNC, 3C509-Combo, 3C509-TPO, 3C509-TPC ISA · This is likely the result of the card being wedged.

Long ago and far away, I installed a 3COM ISA NIC into a Win98se Compaq desktop computer. I actually had it up and running then a reboot later and I have been having problems ever since - i.e. - not seen in ifconfig, delaying init error with ifup, ep0: Invalid EEPROM checksum! http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/trusty/man4/ep.4freebsd.html Erase the pencil mark and reboot. (This is not a joke).

The timer tick interrupt should always be incrementing faster than the others.

Because of your heads up I was finally able to setup the CDROM drive to work in DOS. No received packets If a 3c509, 3c562 or 3c589 can successfully transmit packets, but never receives packets (as reported by /proc/net/dev or 'ifconfig') you likely have an interrupt line problem. I read somewhere about specifying I/O ranges and such, but nothing was clearly defined. Check This Out With a status of 0x2011 you are receiving packets faster than they can be removed from the card.

The easiest solution is to move the 3c509 to a different interrupt line.

The driver will reset the card and the packet will be lost.

The patent describes a method where a data transfer counter triggers a threshold logic that generates an early indication or interrupt signal before the transfer is completed. If interrupts are disabled for an 24 unusually long time it could also result in missed packets, but in 25 practice this rarely happens. 26 27 28 FIXES: 29 Alan Cox: Please try again now or at a later time. I was sharing printers, drives, and internet connection across win95 and win98 computers.

This may happen in extremely low memory conditions. I guess I missed out on the fun of non shared IRQs. 2 of these computers are now set up with Win98(I believe that win98 install saw the cards and just Old 3c509 (not the *B* model) cards would sometimes set the 'adapter failure' bit for unknown reasons.
