Once all the control registers are set up, you set bit 0 of CSR0, and then wait for initialization to be done. I was hoping that installing vmtools would automatically create the virtual PCnet ethernet adapter. Correct Answers – 10 points. I see this problem mentioned in one of the vmware docs: You need to parse ACPI tables etc. Depending on your design this may be preferable.

I was struggling for this issue since weeks. Your way works perfect for me on three Windows NT 4.

Thanks for the detailed instructions. Yes, I did try that and it didn’t work.

LADR is the logical address filter you want the card to use when deciding to accept Ethernet packets with logical addressing. You probably want to set it to zero enable transmit and receive functionality, receive broadcast packets and those sent this physical address, disable promiscuous mode. Please enter a title. After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a adaptter back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller aeapter the interrupt will continue to be signalled.


To actually set up the card registers, we provide it with the address of our initialization structure by writing the low bits of its address to CSR1 and the high bits to CSR2. I ethernef the same question Show 0 Likes 0. Or is there any other ethernet adapater that I could get working in a virtual WinNT4?

Click Continue to finish installing the driver. INF not found”, and adapted with the path F: Advertisements or commercial links. I’m working with Workstation 4 and unfortunately the windows. See the spec description of CSR15 for further details. If you do not wish to use logical addressing the defaultthen set these bytes to zero.

If you want to keep the current one, you will need to first read it from the EPROM of the card it is exposed as the first 6 bytes of the IO space that the registers are in. This content has been marked as final. Sending packets involves simply writing the packet details to the next available transmit buffer, then flipping the ownership for the particular ring buffer entry to the card.


Receiving packets is normally done in your interrupt handler – the card will signal an interrupt whenever it receives a packet and has written it to the receive buffer.

Interrupt done mask – if set then you won’t get an interrupt when the card has finished initializing. Once initialization has completed, you can finally start the card. Note that interrupts pcneh come from many sources other than new packets. You should also have a variable that stores the current ‘pointer’ into each buffer i.
