This section provides a list of known software problems and solutions for the operating systems below. This is assuming that the Broadcom software CD is in drive D. All primary interfaces in a team will participate in Load-balancing operations by sending and receiving a portion of the total traffic. This problem can be overcome by configuring the firmware to operate in forced pci mode. This field presents the estimated cable length in meters by averaging all four channels using Return Loss algorithms. Sometimes the system administrators will rename these icons to easily differentiate the network connections.

Once the driver is loaded and the cables are connected properly, the appropriate speed LED is lit and the data LED is on if data traffic is present. Remove all other adapters from the system and run the tests again.

Do a workaround, the user should always click “OK” in “Network Properties” window after making changes. Other protocol packets will be sent and received through one primary NIC only. By default, MBA is set to auto-negotiate. Insert the floppy disk containing the Broadcom bit LAN driver files into the floppy disk drive.

The status window displays various error messages that diagnose possible problems associated with the cable. The LineSpeed keyword is used to force the speed of the network connection. These features are provided by creating teams virtual netxtrreme that consist of multiple NIC interfaces. Active adapters are listed.

Cannot enable VLAN after betxtreme is disabled. No link; possible link at different speed, possible bad cable, bad connector, or configuration mismatch. Use the ping command to determine if network connectivity is working.
