    i210 and SFP

    AlexMamonov Community Member

      Hello! I'm trying to use WGI210IS with SFP and I have a problem with it.

       

      If the sequence of actions is:

      1. Insert SFP-module into socket.

      2. Power system on.

      3. Load ethernet driver.

      In this case everything works fine.

       

      But, if the sequence of actions is:

      1. Turn system on.

      2. Insert SFP-module into socket while system is running.

      3. Load ethernet driver.

      In this case driver starts ok but connection does not establish, i210 does not see link.

       

      The thing is that we need second scenario working, because we need to support SFP hot swap. How can I get WGI210IS to work with SFP hot plugged?

       

      I'm using custom board, QNX 6.5SP1 with devnp-e1000.so driver, Dev_Start_I210_Sgmii_NOMNG_8Mb_A2_3.25_0.03.bin EEPROM image and Avago ABCU-5730RZ (1000BASE-T) SFP-module.
