Wdsetup is used to configure the i/o address, interrupt line,
ram size, ram base address, wait states, network connection,
rom size, and rom base address. In the command line option
method, wdsetup works silently, and returns 0 for success,
or -1 if an error occured. The board is re-configured, and
the soft eeprom configuration is unchanged. In the interactive
method, the current configuration is displayed, and
then the user is promped for the new configuration to put
in to the eeprom. If your jumpers are not set to soft/soft,
both current and soft configuration information will be shown.
Note that the W1 and W2 jumpers must be set to "soft" to use
the eeprom configuration on boot-up.
-a addr, --baseaddr addr
specifies i/o address at which to look for the card.
display eeprom contents. This option disables interactive configuration.
display register contents. This option disables interactive configuration.
-p ioaddr, --newaddr ioaddr
configure new i/o address. This option disables interactive configuration.
-i irq, --irq irq
configure new irq. This option disables interactive configuration.
-b ramaddr, --ramstart ramaddr
configure new ram address. This option disables interactive configuration.
-m [aui|twp|bnc], --media [aui|twp|bnc]
configure new media. aui is the 15 pin connector. twp is twisted
pair RJ-11? connector. bnc is the thin coax connector. This option
disables interactive configuration.
-v level, --verbose level
Set amount of information printed out. Used mainly for debugging.
wdsetup must be run as root.
Do not re-configure your card while the network
software is accessing it.
You may see "warning eeprom checksum error" if your
card has not been used with the latest SMC ezsetup,
or wdsetup before. This is normal, and the
message will not appear after you update the soft
configuration in eeprom. (The old SMC ezsetup and
wdsetup did not have a master checksum). This mess-
age will only appear on cards with 82C584 BIC.
Since this program has not been widely tested, it
would be wise to have the Dos(yuck) ezsetup program
handy in case something goes wrong.
If there is a problem with the auto recognition,
use -a 280 (replace 280 with your card's actual address).
It seems that some cards (not necessarily ethernet cards)
may lockup if you read their registers at the wrong time,
so if you have such cards, you must specify the address
of your card using the wdsetup -a option, otherwise the
autodetect feature may lockup your computer.
