    Auto-Negotiation with the 82573 controller

    karsunke

      Hi everybody,

       

      I used the auto-negotiation function with several intel controllers now, but the 82573 is causing some trouble.

      I want to establish a hardware based auto-negotiation. To perform this the specifications first step is:

      "LRST transition from 1b to 0b in CTRL register". But this bit is reserved. for the 82573 controller.

      I tried some other ways, but it just dont works.

       

      Can anybody tell me how the auto-negotiation works with this controller?

       

      thanks
