I ran across problems with Trigon3 driver working in bridge mode. Upon replacement it with bcm5700 - all problems have gone.
Anyway, I managed to compile driver and now I'm testing it.

I'm more concerned with Titan GE driver on "Sequoia" board (by PMC-sierra). What's the status of this driver in 2.4.26? If I understand correct - it's maintained now only in 2.6.x? Upon compilation of 2.4.26 for Sequoia" board and installation on to target, we observed a lot of CRC errors on gigabit ethernet (we used SmartBit for testing). Is the driver in this version broken?

With best regards, Roman Mashak. E-mail:
