To unload the driver, use ifconfig to bring down all eth interfaces opened by the driver, then do the following:.

Linux Driver Software: Broadcom NetXtreme® 57XX User Guide

Some applications, such as ifupmay not wait long enough for the link before giving up. In the case of supporting only the module version of these drivers, it is possible to simply run the following to compile patched drivers and to install them into the proper module directory:.

Compressed tar bcm version.

Configures the number of transmitted frames before the NIC generates transmit interrupt. Change the directory to the RPM path and build the binary driver for your kernel the RPM path is different for different Linux distributions: Depending on the kernel, the driver linkx installed to one of the following paths:.


This section contains the following information: The team configuration will gcm5701 automatically started on subsequent reboots. Configures the number of transmitted frames before the adapter generates a transmit interrupt. All primary NIC interfaces in a team will participate in Load-balancing operations by sending and receiving a portion of the total traffic.

Note that each descriptor will also require a buffer the size of a maximum jumbo frame.

CONFIG_TIGON3: Broadcom Tigon3 support

Enables or disables autonegotiation. These features are provided by creating teams that consist of multiple NIC interfaces. With the TG3 driver, you can team adapters together using the bonding kernel module and a channel bonding interface. Installing Linux Driver Software.

Enables or disables receiving flow control pause frames. The MTU size can also be changed using ifconfig after the driver is loaded. The valid range of values is from 0 toand the default value is Select the patch file that matches your kernel and apply the patch: If the driver was lihux using make install from the tar file, the tg3. Installing TG3 Driver Software.

Boot drivers for other Linux linnux can be compiled by modifying the Makefile and the make environment. If you have customized or rebuilt your kernel you may need to install your bcm module using the source RPM package described above.


Note that Mbps must be negotiated for copper twisted pair links.

Re: Broadcom BCM5701

These drivers are originally taken from the Linux 2. SLB mode works with all Ethernet switches without configuring the switch ports to any special trunking mode.

The name of the backup script must NOT be prefixed with “team-“.

TXT file on the installation CD for a list of the specific Linux distributions on which the driver has been tested. Selects the line speed of the link.

The MTU size can also be changed using ifconfig after the driver is loaded. The most likely cause is that the rpm-build package has not been installed. Apply the appropriate patch by running the patch command.


Enables or disables transmitting flow control pause frames. The Linux driver is released in three packaging formats: For interface eth0, you would create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0, then add the below content. This mode is protocol-independent and all traffic will be load-balanced and fault-tolerant.
