Does ISA wd driver support SMC 83C795?
Hi,
I see that the 'wd' driver supports SMC 83C790 ISA NICs. Is the 83C795 chip close enough to work as well?

thanks!

Oh ISA ... I think the best we can do is try to read the code, and than maybe compare that to for example linux sources if that does support that NIC.
But in the end, the only way to know is to test, unless someone else can give you insight into this, don't get your hopes up tho.

Read the FAQ before posting.
Did you include relevant ipxe.org error urls?

RE: Does ISA wd driver support SMC 83C795?
I built an image and burned it to ROM, but it will be a few days before I get a working ISA system to test with.

Meanwhile, I found the manual for this card (SMC EtherEZ 8416T) and it only mentions ROM sizes of 8, 16 and 32kb, so I'm not sure if my 64kb iPXE image will be feasible anyway. We shall see...
