The default value is 0 to disable transmit buffer collapsing. For interface eth0, you would create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0, then add the below content. This mode is protocol-independent and all traffic will be load-balanced and fault-tolerant.

Apparently on Ubuntu this broadcom chip the chip works right works right out of the box? Has anyone successfully built a working driver based on broadcom’s code for a 2.

Now if only I could figure out why when I try to connect to the bit hex WEP network in question with the correct key, the network manager icon churns brpadcom a few times, and then asks me for the key again. For example, on Red Hat 8. Yes, I know the tg3 driver is the “preferred” driver for the BCM family, but I’m afraid it’s horribly, horribly broken for that family search for “tg3” and you’ll see a slew of bug reports hcm5700 it, plus I see that kernel 2.

I can’t see the harm in it and it would let me build the bcm Did this article broaxcom you? Note that registered members see fewer ads, and ContentLink is completely disabled once you log in.

Note that the driver may not be able to allocate the required amount of memory if this parameter is set too high.

You might just need to refresh it. Please read all restrictions and disclaimers. Depending on kernel and system architecture, the driver may require up to bytes per descriptor.

For interface eth0, you would create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0, then add the below content. Note You need to log in before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.

Configures broadcok number of 1 usec ticks before the NIC generates transmit interrupt after transmitting a frame. Configures the number of 1 usec ticks before the NIC generates receive interrupt after receiving a frame.

You are currently hcm5700 LQ as a guest. Copy the patched drivers to the Linux kernel network driver source directory, i. When the maximum frame size is less than MTU size less thanthis parameter is not used and is always 0.


When jumbo frames larger than bytes are used, this parameter should not be set lower than 60 on systems with high network traffic. Version-Release number of selected component if applicable: The bcm5070 value is 0 which disables UDP transmit checksum offloading.

Attachments Terms of Use Add an attachment proposed patch, testcase, etc. Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven In Generic Trunking and Configures the number of receive descriptors for frames up to bytes. I should be able to build and install an official third party Linux kernel driver without problems, especially one as important as a widely-used network card as the BCM driver shipped with a lot of servers, particularly Dell PowerEdges.

Complete the installation of the source RPM as previously described. This might happen if the card is not in a bus-master slot.

In the “Network configuration” tool, when I’m prompted to add a new device type the only thing that I’m seeing right now is the eth0I select wirless connection, and then I’m only offered a choice of one wireless device: The current version of the Linux driver has been thoroughly tested on Red Hat 8.
