Component: Drivers/Network/broadcom570x Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


Onboard network adapter is recognized and loaded be the broadcom570X driver, also receives and sends packets, but wont read out the MAC-Address of the network card.

MAC-Address shows as 00:00:00:00:00:00.

Because of this connecting to neither a static network works, also a DHCP server wont assign a IP to it.

Ok poked more around this problem and wanted to see on FreeBSD if the network driver works, since Haiku took the driver from it. Interestingly enough the BTX loader fails on this machine and FreeBSD wont boot at all.

Found out there is a problem with the custom BIOS HP uses on the 6005 PRO and a few other similar machines.

Maybe related why the driver fails to initialize the network card.
