From JohnLopez@vandorndemag.com

I am in a bit of a "sticky wicket" as they say.

I have a legacy CAD system the must run on Solaris X86 2.5 or 2.5.1 with DU11.

I am building some new boxes as servers, whereby multiple user clients will import the X desktop for their logins. We currently have 8 configured and working fine.

The problem​: I need to build 5 more. We have no more 3COM 3C905B Combo ISA NICs prior to ASSY​:03-0021-000 REV. A which are the NICs that seem to function. I've tried latter assy/rev's, earlier ones in 3C509B-TPO, etc. and have NO luck getting the Solaris drivers to work. The cards test fine in the 3C5X9CFG install and config util, but Solaris will not drive them.

Other card identifed in the "Device Reference Pages" are​: 3C900 TPO, 3C900 Combo, 3C905. No assy/rev info for these is identified. However the most standard and prefered is the 3C905B identified above.

Do any of you have any of these cards? Or old PCs that may have them? I could either buy them outright (as long as verified to work recently) or trade for later 3C509B-TPO.

You assistance in this is really appreciated. Without functional NICs, obviously we are dead in the water.

Again, thanks.

John Lopez
