I've a big trouble and i don't know what to do.
I wanted to connect 2 pc's at my home with a single network ( crosscable without a hub ).
When i connect the cable and run the tests that came with the boards, everything seems ok except when i try to make the DATA SEND/RECEIVE TEST.
I get always the error "Rx Packet Eerror", the works a little bit, because i can see that pc's are communication beetwen because they can receive and transmit data, but in one pc i get this message and i notice that DATA RECEIVE had stop, like something is blocking.
I tried to change the of the cable ( change the connectors with the pcs ) and the result was even worst, now the 2 boards only SEND DATA, don't receive and i get the same message "Rx Packet Eerror"
Could it be a problem with the network boards? i already had them work fine, but now i dont know what is happening.
Could it be some BIOS configuration that is making this happen?
The network boards are GENIUS GF100TXRII and GENIUS GF100TXRIII
Can anyone help me?
Notice that i make this tests without any operating system, i have in one pc WIN98SE and i go to DOS MODE with running any line form AUTOXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS, the other machine has WIN98SE and WINXP but i start the machine the same way that the other
( sorry my english )
