IBM TP 760EL trouble using 3Com 3CCFE575CT

    Hello,

    Belated thanks to David Hinds for this helpful response. (Which I later found I should have read out of README-2.4, sorry about that.) It took some time before I got around to this project again, but now I am at it and I have encountered the next obstacle: The apparently dreaded and mysterious

      eth0: transmit timed out, tx_status 00 status e000.
        diagnostics: net 0ce0 media a800 dma 000000a0.

    For very small amounts of data, the network connection seems to work, data can be transmitted back and fourth etc. But for larger transfers of data or ping'ing with larger package sizes, I get the quoted error message. And the process involved in the data transfer seems to grind to a halt.

    Summarizing the situation:

    1. I have installed the kernel sources (RedHat 8.0), built a kernel (2.4.18-14custom) where "# CONFIG_PCMCIA is not set" and installed it.

    2. For good measure, I have built the latest pcmcia-cs-3.2.8 and installed it. (The pcmcia that came with RedHat 8.0 did not behave differently in any significant way that I was able to tell.)

    3. I have suitably fiddled with various /etc configuration files to
    the best of my ability. Details follow.

    4. I can insert my 3Com 3CCFE575CT card in any socket and I hear the two high beeps that signify detection and succesful load of the driver.

    5. The card has a short connector (marked CHINA 0004 07-0337-002) with LED's marked "10" and "100". The "100" light turns on after a short while.

    6. The network cable attached to the card connector is a "Cat.5e Patch cable FTP crossover 2m" that I bought in a computer store. On the cable is printed "equip FTP CAT.5E PATCH ISO/IEC 11801 & EN 50288 & TIA/EIA 568B.2 3P VERIFIED FOR GIGABIT ETHERNET".

    7. The other end of the cable has a IBM ThinkPad T40 running Windows 2000 with an internally located "Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Mobile Connection" "network adaptor". I use the same slot in this machine to connect succesfully to the network at the office where I work. The LAN property component "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" is configured to use the IP adress 10.0.1.14 for this ordeal. (Normally, it is configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically".)

    8. At this point, I ping each machine from the other a few times
    succesfully and then run the Shell program pcmcia3A.sh as root. In addition to performing basic tests, it reports details about the configuration:

      #!/bin/sh
      # pcmcia3A.sh: Demonstrate additional trouble using 3Com 3CCFE575CT
      #   on IBM ThinkPad 760EL
      HM=/home/tn
      set -x
      uname -rv
      /sbin/cardctl -V
      /sbin/lspci -v
      $HM/tn/scyld/pub/diag/vortex-diag -aeem
      cat /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia
      diff /home/tn/tn/pcmcia/unpack/pcmcia-cs-3.2.8/etc /etc/pcmcia | grep -v '^Only'
      ping -c 5 10.0.1.14
      echo 10.0.1.14 | LANG=C $HM/tn/pcmcia/unpack/pcmcia-cs-3.2.8/debug-tools/test_network
      dmesg

    The output is provided below. Already at this point, "there seems to be a TX problem".

    9. I have installed vsftpd-1.1.0-1 on the 760EL and from the T40, I attempt to transfer a large file to the 760EL. I am able to logon, change directory, list the contents of the current directory. But when I "put" this large file, no more than about 5000-7000 bytes ever get across. And I eventually get error messages, both on the various consoles of the 760EL and in /var/log/messages.

    10. With the file transfer stuck, I run the Shell program pcmcia3B.sh as root:

      #!/bin/sh
      # pcmcia3B.sh: Demonstrate additional trouble using 3Com 3CCFE575CT
      #   on IBM ThinkPad 760EL
      set -x
      echo 10.0.1.14 | LANG=C $HOME/tn/pcmcia/unpack/pcmcia-cs-3.2.8/debug-tools/test_network
      dmesg

    The output is provided below. As well as extracts from /var/log/messages that seem remotely relevant.

    Various things that I have tried without any perceptible change of the behaviour of the system:

    a. 3c575_cb parameter rx_copybreak = 400, 200.
    b. 3c575_cb parameter max_interrupt_work = 64, 16.
    c. 3c575_cb parameter down_poll_rate = 0, 10, 40.
    d. pcmcia_core parameter io_speed = 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10000.
    e. Changing parameters on the Windows 2000 system to enforce 10 MB per second and Half Duplex.

    In addition to the above, I have tried to run the latest version of the "vortex" driver from www.scyld.com. With some effort, I seem to be able to run this most recent driver. Unfortunately, it seems to work even less succesfully than the driver that comes with pcmcia-cs-3.2.8: Even ping'ing does not work. And when the network card is ejected, the operating system crashes. Since I am uncertain whether using this version of the driver even makes sense, I will not report the details of these experiments.

    I have studied the discussions on scyld.com and elsewhere without getting a clear idea of what direation to take.

    I would be most grateful for any help to progress in this matter.

    Regards
    Thorkil Naur
