Problem with second Eth controller (WG82574L)

Hi.

My design consists of an Q7 module based Intel ATOM processor, chipset US15W. On the carrier board of this module there are two ethernet ports, each controlled by an Intel WG82574L controller. Used OS is Windows XP embedded.

My problem is that I can't get one of the ethernet ports to work properly. See attached screen dump over the Win XP device manager. HW wise the two ports are identical, however there is always the same port that fails on all 5+ boards assembled.

I'm running out of ideas. The driver has been updated, both controllers are enabled. Moreover, since both controllers are detected by Win XP some kind of connection must be established.

My main question is, being a HW designer and not totally wizardous on the SW parts:

What can I consider to be working/not working when this exclamation mark, "!", is presented in the device manager?

Obiously, some kind of connection via PCEe must be working, right?

I would be very grateful for any idea or possible solution.

Thanks!

/Henrik

When you see a "yellow bang" in the windows device manager this means that the device was seen by the PCIe bus but the driver failed to load for some reason.

In this case...there are many reasons that the driver might have failed to load. There might be a problem with the Flash/EEPROM image you have programmed. There might be a signal integrity issue on the PCIe interface. The OS might have had a problem allocating resources to the device. There might a problem with the power management (ASPM) setup in your BIOS.

The first thing to check is your EEPROM/Flash image. That is the most likely source of the problem. You might also want to do a careful design review of your board with our schematic and layout checklists to look for any possible issue.

In addition, you might want try testing using our LAN Software Tools like LANCONF in a very simple DOS/EFI or Linux OS to help you narrow down the possible issues.

Where can I get the LANCONF tool?

Do you have a link?

I'm trying to debug an 82571 dual port fiber 1GbE NIC card.

Check with the vendor of the board. They may have the PCI routing screwed up in the BIOS.

Make double sure your bits in the configuration rom are correct.
