The communication between my host and target PC is lost everytime I boot the target PC into the xPC environment. I've tried 3 ways of booting - FDD, network, and CD boot - and all gave the same result. However, in the windows environment, the communication works well.
I purchased an EXPI9301CTBLK Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter ) and plugged it into the PCIe slot. This card has Intel 82574L gigabit ethernet controller. I also checked 'Device Instance ID' for the device which are; vendor = 0x8086 and device ID = 0x10D3. Hence, I'm sure it's compatible. This card is properly installed and it works well in the windows environment (I used it for internet too).
I've also tried to adjust the BIOS setting for the target PC under Peripherals'>Onboard device>Onboard LAn boot Rom and disable it. I thought to disable the onboard ethernet. It still doesn't work.
Any ideas anyone?
Here are some details of my comps.
Dell laptop - Intel core i7 CPU, Intel 82577LM gigabit network adapter, Windows 7.
Desktop Shuttle XPC - SG33G50 motherboard with built in Generic MArvell Yukon 88
