PCI based I210 ethernet controller not getting detected with igb device driver

Hi,

I am using PCI based ethernet controller WGI I210 IS LJxx.

I have compiled I210 igb driver for imx6. After running this driver probe function doesnot get called, since the device ID 0x1531 is not present in the e1000_hw.h file.

After googling I came to know that DEVICE ID 0x1531 indicates unflashed eeprom and needs to be flashed with respective Device ID.

Kindly send me the source code for eepromARMtool.

Is the above solution correct? Please guide.

Hello, sarita:

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

The information that may help you is stated in the answer to the question 2.23, on page 9 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/faqs/ethernet-controller-i210-i211-faq.p... Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I210/I211 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document # 335346.

On the other hand, the eepromARMtool can be sent to you if you have an Embedded Design Center (EDC) Privileged account. In order to request an upgrade from your Basic EDC account to Privileged, go to http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/design/support/account-support.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/design/support/account-support.html and click on "Manage Your Intel Profile" found in the "Manage Your Account" section of the page. From there you can request an upgrade. The application can be found at:

https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/forms/design/registration-privileged.html https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/forms/design/registration-privileged.html

In order to help you with the EDC account update process, we suggest you use a business email address to evade any inconvenience.

We hope that this information may help you to solve this situation.

Hi Carlos_A,

could you please guide on which file is to be used with eepromARmtool , to program DEVICE ID and MAC address in I210 ethernet controller?
