Configuring

 

the

 

Broadcom

 

NetXtreme

 

Gigabit

 

Ethernet

 

controller

 

The

 

Ethernet

 

controller

 

is

 

integrated

 

on

 

the

 

system

 

board.

 

It

 

provides

 

an

 

interface

 

for

 

connecting

 

to

 

a

 

10

 

Mbps,

 

100

 

Mbps,

 

or

 

1

 

Gbps

 

network

 

and

 

provides

 

full

 

duplex

 

(FDX)

 

capability,

 

which

 

enables

 

simultaneous

 

transmission

 

and

 

reception

 

of

 

data

 

on

 

the

 

network.

 

If

 

the

 

Ethernet

 

port

 

in

 

the

 

server

 

supports

 

auto-negotiation,

 

the

 

controller

 

detects

 

the

 

data-transfer

 

rate

 

(10BASE-T,

 

100BASE-TX,

 

or

 

1000BASE-T)

 

and

 

duplex

 

mode

 

(full-duplex

 

or

 

half-duplex)

 

of

 

the

 

network

 

and

 

automatically

 

operates

 

at

 

that

 

rate

 

and

 

mode.

 

You

 

do

 

not

 

have

 

to

 

set

 

any

 

jumpers

 

or

 

configure

 

the

 

controller.

 

However,

 

you

 

must

 

install

 

a

 

device

 

driver

 

to

 

enable

 

the

 

operating

 

system

 

to

 

address

 

the

 

controller.

 

For

 

device

 

drivers

 

and

 

information

 

about

 

configuring

 

the

 

Ethernet

 

controller,

 

see

 

the

 

Broadcom

 

NetXtreme

 

Gigabit

 

Ethernet

 

Software

 

CD

 

that

 

comes

 

with

 

the

 

server.

 

To

 

find

 

updated

 

information

 

about

 

configuring

 

the

 

controller,

 

complete

 

the

 

following

 

steps.
