D-Link DFE-680TXD not recognised



  • Just checking if it should be or if the following message means I should look for another card? During boot and on re-insertion text appears as follows:

    dc0: <abocom 10="" fe2500="" 100basetx="">port 0x1300-0x13ff mem 0x88000000-0x8800003ff
    irq 11 at device 0.0 on cardbus0
    dc0:MII without any PHY!
    device_attach: dc0 attach returned 6

    The computer it is plugged into is a Compaq N800v. Any other information I should provide?</abocom>



  • The FreeBSD supported hardware list for version 8.1 (http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.1R/hardware.html) lists the Abocom FE2500 so your card should work.

    I would guess that this card was last tested a few releases ago and some change in teh meantime broke the support. If you want it fixed you will probably have to report it to a FreeBSD forum or lodge a problem report.

    The fastest resolution would probably be to purchase a more recent cardbus card.
