I am working on a network card support nowadays and I'd like to have some docs on Network stack.
So does this true?

It looks good yes, but it has nothing to do with network stack, does it?
I dont understand on what part exactly you want more information.

This image is intended to show how Ethernet packets are send from one computer to another on the lowest - physical layer of the stack.
You have written a lot of information on the New network stack on the wiki, and it's easy to understand how to write a network driver for it. But I have not found any information on how to write network driver for the current stack. I think it would be good to have documentation on how to write network driver for the current network stack, until new stack is integrated to the trunk.

Thank you! I didn't know about that document. It can be very helpfull for creating of a network driver by a novice.

Yes, wel it was pretty hard to find for me too, if i didnt know it existed and what the exact title was, i'd never have found it online..
It's the only version still online, according to google. And i didnt find any links to it either :)

I did not put it on the wiki because I hope to put the new stack into trunk, eventually ;)
yogev_ezra: first document is only usefull for application programming, and both documents apply to menuetos64, and differ very much from the code in kolibrios trunk

Is there any possibility to test the work of a network driver off-line?

I can donate a copy of Ebox-3300MX to hidnplayr if he wishes and if it may help the project.
Sending to Belgium is much easier than sending to ex-USSR :wink:

I think it will be very good if hidnplayr agree to help. :)

No, why would you want to do that?
Just connect it to a router with dhcp, or another pc, ..

I would be very pleased, but what do you want in return? r6040 network driver?
WLAN is not going to happen very soon ;)

Yes, that offer is more than satisfying :wink:
If you agree, PM me with your full name, full address, ZIP code and phone.

An eBox-3300-L2 was sent to hidnplayr today. I hope he will receive it shortly.

The differences to eBox-3300MX the other developers got are:
a) (CompactFlash + microSD) slots - instead of single standard SD slot
b) 2x COM ports (no COM ports in eBox-3300MX)
c) 5V power supply (eBox-3300MX uses 12V)
d) IDE port (instead of SATA port as in eBox-3300MX)
e) 2x LAN ports out of which one is RDC R6040 (eBox-3300MX has single LAN port)
f) no PS/2 port (the space is taken by second LAN port)
g) 256MB RAM instead of 512MB
h) CPU: Vortex86DX instead of Vortex86MX
i) Graphics: XGI Volari 9z with 32MB RAM instead of RDC 2010 (R3306) with 64MB RAM.
j) Audio Cmedia AC97 over USB bus (instead of HD Audio in eBox-3300MX).

The reason was hidnplayr's request to have a development unit different as much as possible to what others have, while still having R6040 network controller and at least 1x COM port. I tried to fulfill his wishes :wink:
