Sunfire v100 Config Card

Unread postby Dans34 » Tue Nov 22, 2016 12:39 pm

Hello All

Dug out my old sunfire v100 motherboard recently to see if I could recase it , unfortunately seams I have misplaced the config card that came with it

Looking on ebay there are a few for the V240 & above, anyone know if this card would work or will I be able to use a generic smart card ?


Regards
Dan

Hi Dan,

just tested this with the SC card of a V240 in a V100 and it seems to work, although the NVRAM contents are reset to their default values on startup. Both interfaces of the V100 have a MAC address based on the value that is printed on the SC card after startup.

BTW here are the part numbers of the SC cards if somebody wants an exact replacement:

  • Fire V240 - 370(-)5155-02
  • Fire V100 - 370-4285-02 (The SC card of my V100 has a hole near the chip, but this seems to be not relevant for the SC card reader, as the SC card from the V240 doesn't have this hole)
  • Netra X1 - 370-4285-01 (Just for reference as nearly identical to the V100)

Regards,
johnnym
