Note that this condition only occurs when warm booting from another operating system. This warning may appear when using the driver on some Dell Latitude docking stations with built-in 3cTX adapters. Some commands issued to the 3c90x ASIC take time to complete: If you see this message but the driver continues to function normally, the message can probably be ignored. It is probably safe to ignore them. For whatever the reason, the ‘MII available’ bit in the media options register on this particular equipment is not set, even though it should be the 3cTX always uses an external PHY transceiver.

To avoid getting caught in an infinite wait loop, the driver only polls the bit for a finite number of times before giving up, at which point it issues this message. Etherilnk commands issued to the 3c90x ASIC take time to complete: The mediaopt option can also be used to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

Some operating systems place the 3cB in low power 3cc905b when shutting down, and some PCI BIOSes fail to bring the chip out of this state before configuring it. If you power down your system prior to booting FreeBSD, the card should be configured correctly. If you see this message at boot time and the driver fails to attach the device as a network interface, you will have to perform second warm boot to have the device properly configured.

In rare instances, this bit may not clear. The 3cB adapters have built-in autonegotiation fasr mapped onto the MII for compatibility with previous drivers.

For whatever the reason, the ‘MII available’ bit in the media options register on this particular equipment is not set, even though it should be the 3cTX always uses an external PHY transceiver. Note that this condition only occurs when warm booting from another operating system.

Product Details

Neither the xl driver nor any other FreeBSD driver supports this modem. Note that the baseTX media type is only available if supported by the adapter. This warning may appear when using the driver on some Dell Latitude docking stations with built-in 3cTX adapters.

The ethfrlink tries to detect this condition and bring the adapter back to the D0 full power state, but this may not be enough to return the driver to a fully operational condition.

It is probably safe to ignore them. The xl driver supports the 3c905bb media options: Fast Etherlink XL adapters such as the 3cTX and 3cB-TX are capable of 10 or Mbps data rates in either full or half duplex and can be manually configured for any supported mode or automatically negotiate the highest possible mode with a link partner.

If you see this message but the driver continues to function normally, the message can probably be ignored. The driver makes a lot of noise about this condition because the author considers it a manufacturing defect. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig 8.

The 3cB loses all of its PCI configuration in the D3 state, so if the BIOS does not set it back to full power mode in time, it will not be able to configure it correctly.

Note that this option is only available with the 3c and 3cB adapters with external PHYs or 33com autonegotiation logic. The xl driver supports the following media types: This message may be printed during driver initialization on slower machines.
