Re: if_nfe on nVidia chipset



Hello,

Please try to use generic PHY driver (ukphy) instead of e1000phy; i.e., use nfe without the patch for e1000phy.

Here's a problematic machine:

    vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'

    class    = bridge



Just the other day, on a machine running amd64, I got it working with no problems:

nfe0_(_at_)_pci0:8:0: class=0x068000 card=0x82391043 chip=0x037310de rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    class    = bridge
nfe1_(_at_)_pci0:9:0: class=0x068000 card=0x82391043 chip=0x037310de rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    class    = bridge

Both run FreeBSD-6.2 release with the patches added. Same motherboards, m2n sli-deluxe. So, might it have something to do with i386 vs. amd64? For me, it works with amd64, and not with i386 (on at least two machines). It is detected properly on all machines, but the network does not work.

Hi Palle,

I am having the same issue. I just installed FreeBSD 7.0 snapshot from January to see if that helps because the latest patch requires FreeBSD 6.2 and I had been running 6.1. But still getting (none) for the media type, but everything else *looks* like it is working. However nothing responds. Can you run pciconf -l -v and compare it to my IDs?

nfe0_(_at_)_pci0:16:0: class=0x068000 card=0xcb8410de chip=0x037310de rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
   vendor   = 'Nvidia Corp'
   device   = 'MCP55 Ethernet'
   class   = bridge
nfe1_(_at_)_pci0:17:0: class=0x068000 card=0xcb8410de chip=0x037310de rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
   vendor   = 'Nvidia Corp'
   device   = 'MCP55 Ethernet'
   class   = bridge

Thanks,
   Brian Smith

Hello,

Sorry, there's no change, it still acts the same way.

media: Ethernet autoselect (none)
status: active

and the network does not work. No mediaopts work.

Regards,
Palle
