FSB O/C Lan Card?
 
How far can you increase your FSB before it starts to affect the lan card itself. Are they known to run at 140 and higher. Thanks!

Depends on your card. Some may not like high PCI speed, some might.

I have a Netgear NIC, and it takes 41.5MHz just fine.

My intel pro-management 10/100 NIC can't go above 39mhc bus without issues, but other brands make 40+ ...

What about a 3com 10/100??

surlyjoe 18th November, 2001 06:00 PM

I havent had very good luck with the 3coms, there kinda picky

Don't try Intel cards as they'll drop more and more packets the faster you run the bus... :(

I've not had much in the way of problems with RealTek based cards, and they tend to be cheap. Couldn't give you any brand names though!

seriously? I have the same card, and it runs great at high bus speeds.

If I had the card overclocked to much, what would normally happen? No Boot/freeze ups/etc....?

mrpcman 19th November, 2001 08:10 AM

maybe bsod, but probably serious packet loss.

On my machines it fails to find machines on my LAN or be seen by others.

Most LAN cards are good for at least 39MHz PCI bus I have found. A few won't do that, and a few will do more. I've got three "Ovislink" brand cards on my network and they are all goot for at least for that.

I've got a couple AMD poc (not quite bad enough to be pos) and they didn't like my 39mhz, I'd get buttons and such showing up as blank outlines with the little red "x" in the middle and such.

Bingo, for me. My Linksys'es start napping on me at around 37 or so, and my intel doesn't even like 36.5. Not the best luck with nics.

Ive got a LincSys 10/100 that will run fine at 166MHz FSB (41.5 PCI BUS) on my 8KHA+.
Others have reported problems with LincSys cards.

At 166Mhz on the 8KHA+ you are actually running at 33.3Mhz PCI because of the 1/5 divider. You would have to go back down to 159Mhz FSB in order for the 1/4 divider to take effect.

There sure are some misconceptions going on about the KT266A chipset. One side says that there is no support on the KT266A for a 1/5 divisor, and the other side says there is. But according to the thread in Epox motherboards on this subject, there certainly appears to be. That would explain this system running so smoothly at such an elevated FSB, although I still have trouble getting my PC2100 Crucial to go over 150MHz. My 128MB of generic RAM with Micron chips will do 166MHz at very aggressive settings, go figure.

I can't get a reading on either the AGP or the PCI bus speeds in Sandra, I assumed that there was no 1/5.

I think I stand corrected.

Yeah, some guy used a osiocajlkethaiglejator (sp? :p) to find the PCI bus frequency and it was 33.33 at 166 and 32.something at 160.

" osiojlkejithacagelator" it's french, i think.:D

an ocilator(sp?)

An oscilloscope by any chance? A frequency counter would be more useful though. (:
