It is probably safe to ignore them. I have already contacted my broadband company and told them that I would like to be issued additional IP addresses and they have granted my request. A few very scattered thoughts: Additionally when I run netconfig and give eth0 a static address the address does not stick when I attempt to verify ifconfig eth0 As you can see I need help.

The driver makes a lot of noise about this condition because the author considers it a manufacturing defect.

Note that the baseTX media type is only available if supported by the adapter. A few very liunx thoughts: If you power down your system prior to booting FreeBSD, the card should be configured correctly.

After all of this I am still unable to llinux out to the internet on my linux box. 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.

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. Having a problem linu in?

The driver 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. The 3cB adapters have built-in autonegotiation logic 39c05c onto the MII for compatibility with previous drivers.


I have already contacted my broadband company and told them that I would like to be issued additional IP addresses and they have granted my request. The problem I am having is: This message may be 3c9005c during driver initialization on slower machines. Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free.
