I recently bought a SGI Challenge S and have been trying to install IRIX on it. However, I have been unable to connect it over Ethernet. I am able to connect the cable and the light on the rj45 jack on the router goes on indicating that it has been plugged in and connected at 10mbps. The ACT light also blinks as do all the other ports when activity occurs over the network. However, when I try to do any network operation (e.g. installing system software from network) it just prints out
ec0: ethernet cable problemfour times before failing saying that it could not connect to server. I have also tried connecting the cable directly to my computer and like before the light goes on and the computer recognizes being connected at 10mbps. However, it still will not work and still prints out
ec0: ethernet cable problemfour times before failing. Is there anyway to get the network working?
