    SubjectRE: 3c905B - Transmit error, Tx status register 82
    Date

    Lee,

    Thanks for the reply.

    We have tried moving my network connection to a new switch, replaced the
    cables, but still getting that error.

    What do I do with that command options 3c59x full_duplex=1, where do I
    put it? Bare with me as I am a newbie.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Um... did you check Documentation/networking/vortex.txt?

    261 Transmit error, Tx status register 82
    262 -------------------------------------
    263
    264 This is a common error which is almost always caused by another
    host on
    265 the same network being in full-duplex mode, while this host is
    in
    266 half-duplex mode. You need to find that other host and make it
    run in
    267 half-duplex mode or fix this host to run in full-duplex mode.
    268
    269 As a last resort, you can force the 3c59x driver into
    full-duplex mode
    270 with
    271
    272 options 3c59x full_duplex=1
    273
    274 but this has to be viewed as a workaround for broken network
    gear and
    275 should only really be used for equipment which cannot
    autonegotiate.
