Fixed a problem where download with MTFTP fails. (CQ1793 & CQ2679) Version 2.0.10: 1. Added support for future BCM5702 and BCM5703 NICs/LOMs. Version 2.0.9: 1. Fixed a problem where PXE is not operatable if preboot WOL is enabled. Version 2.0.8: 1. Improve performance. Version 2.0.7: 1. Fixed a problem where Tx or Rx can be hung when it's in PCI-X. Version 2.0.6: 1. Fixed a problem where PXE is not detected by BIOS when it's in PCI-X slot. Version 2.0.5: 1. Fixed a problem where PXE might not boot in some systems which have SMBIOS database built at preboot but don't support BBS. Version 2.0.4: 1. Enhanced so that BIOS's BBS capability can be detected though SMBIOS. Version 2.0.3: 1. Added support for BCM95701A12 NIC. 2. Enhanced to utilize shared memory interface for future compatibility. Version 2.0.2: 1. Added support for BCM95701A10 NIC. Version 2.0.1: 1. Added BCM5700 Fiber NIC support. 2. Added BCM5701 Fiber NIC support. 3. Added support for some OEM NICs. Version 2.0.0: 1. Added BCM5701 support. Version 1.06: 1. Added PCI-X workaround for B2 silicon. Version 1.05: 1. Changed to provide a scheme for users to boot via Int 18h, Int 19h, or BBS. After the Broadcom banner is displayed, users have 4 seconds to select: * Ctrl F8 : Int 18h * Ctrl F9 : Int 19h * Ctrl F10 : BBS 2. Changed to allow users to force PXE run at a certain speed. Version 1.04: 1. Changed due to changes in ASIC version format in B1 silicon. Version 1.03: 1. Eliminated unused code to save more memory so that it works fine with IBM 300GL. 2. Changed to accomodate different LED configurations based on System Vendor ID. Version 1.02: 1. Fixed a problem where client hangs up during setup phase of windows 2000 installation with RIS. 2. Fixed copyright banner string. Version 1.01: 1. Changed to accomodate different LED configurations. Version 1.0: 1. Fixed a problem where base-code cannot be unloaded. 2.

Fixed a problem where some system might lock up if BIOS calls UNDI API SHUTDOWN before call UNDI API INITIALIZE. IBM 300PL PC is one of them. 2. Changed so that Broadcom copyright banner is displayed during ROM initialization. This version should fix SAR Prod0000344,and SAR Prod0000283 Version 0.9: 1. Fixed a problem where PXE is not recognized is some systems where BIOS don't support BBS (BIOS Boot Specification). Logic is added to PXE initialization code to detect if BIOS support BBS or not. If not, then use Interrupt 18h for boot. This should fix SAR Prod0000225,SAR Prod0000604, SAR Prod0000606. Version 0.8: 1. Fixed a problem where APITEST failed. (SAR Prod0000426) Version 0.7: 1.
