Build the driver tg3. Note that when configuring Teaming, at least one Primary Adapter is required. If there is an interface configuration that is related to the tg3 driver, then bring the interface down first by using ifconfig ethx down and then rmod tg3. This MAC address is the same address as that of the first physical interface bounded to the team. Configures the number of receive descriptors for jumbo frames larger than bytes.

Patch files are included for patching the driver into some of the latest 2. Configures the number of linu descriptors for jumbo frames larger than bytes.

Linux-Net Archive: Re: Broadcom BCM

Configures the number of transmitted frames before the adapter cbm5701 a transmit interrupt. Note that if the removed physical interface does not participate in any traffic, there will not be any problem. Interrupt will be generated when either of these thresholds is exceeded.

Note that each descriptor requires a buffer the size of a maximum jumbo frame. Following steps for Red Hat Linux distributions only. Then complete the installation of the source RPM. Note that when liux Teaming, at least one Primary Adapter is required.


Note that Mbps must be negotiated for copper twisted pair links. If you have customized or rebuilt your kernel you may need to install your bcm module using the source RPM package described above.

Re: Broadcom BCM5701

While tg3 is a fully functioning driver written by Red Hat et al, Broadcom recommends users to use the bcm driver written and bcm5710 by Broadcom. For example, on Red Hat 8. These modules are designed only for the default kernels on these distributions. Both packages include the exact same script and MIB files. Setting this property to 1 may resolve such problems.

The most recent Red Hat distributions are included. Use ifconfig to bring down all eth interfaces used by tg3 and do the following to unload the tg3 driver: The tar file contains additional utilities such as patches and driver diskette images for network installation. In Generic Trunking and The file name must be prefixed linxu “ifcfg-” then the physical adapter alias.

CONFIG_TIGON3: Broadcom Tigon3 support

Thus please follow the instruction 3 in the Install – TAR archive to modify the snmpd. Note that the backed up copy of the original bcm module will be restored after you unload and reload the driver, where appropriate.


The driver diskette images for the most recent Red Llinux versions are included. Enables or disables adaptive adjustments to the various interrupt coalescing parameters.

Linux Driver: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter User’s Guide

The driver cannot detect all such conflicting combinations. All the physical interfaces in the Enables jumbo frames up to the specified MTU size.

TXT file on the installation CD ilnux a list of the specific Linux distributions on which the adapter driver has been tested. Enables or disables the auto-negotiation of flow control.

This mode is protocol-independent and all traffic should be load-balanced and fault-tolerant. Note that the MTU size excludes the Ethernet header size of 14 bytes. To unload the driver, use ifconfig to bring down all eth interfaces opened by the driver, and then type the following:. To install patched drivers:.

Configures the number of received frames before the adapter generates a receive interrupt. Patching the Driver Into the Kernel Optional.
