a111: Logged on 2018-09-04 16:15 asciilifeform: and recall, at one time asciilifeform burned 6mo+ to try and bring up realtek GB nic from 'raw iron', in the end did not even succeed in this
asciilifeform: phf: i once sank good bit of time into attempt to bring up the ubiquitous 'crab nic' (realtek gb) from asm. broke teeth, it needs a working interrupt stack to run (i.e. 'spittoon in 1 strand', need entire os) . since then, found the 'seekrit' datashit, theoretically could do it, but not had time. ☝︎

a111: Logged on 2016-12-19 20:16 asciilifeform: btw if anyone can come up with a WORKING 'crab' (realtek) nic driver in pure long mode asm, we can have, e.g., scheme on iron, and usefully so, in a couplea weeks.
asciilifeform: realtek also worx, though not nearly as reliably
asciilifeform: and recall, at one time asciilifeform burned 6mo+ to try and bring up realtek GB nic from 'raw iron', in the end did not even succeed in this ☟︎
mircea_popescu: but anyway, let the record reflect i did do it. and THEN had to conjure up wireless driver, because holy shit it comes with an unknown pos atop the realtek.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i misspoke re 'downconverter' for realtek, really it was ~up~converter ( realtek intake starts at 100MHz or so)
asciilifeform: the most economical receive-only station would prolly still consist of the realtek + a (working) downconverter.
asciilifeform: the ubiquitous realtek sdr dongle is unfortunately wholly worthless for shortwave work
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Slow realtek NICs, quality of service becomes a concern

asciilifeform: !#s realtek
asciilifeform: in other noose, asciilifeform found the seekrit of realtek nic init

asciilifeform: ( re realtek )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform when you're done with that you can cycle through the realtek until you document it and reverse the blob, we'll be good.
mircea_popescu: hardly. what exactly do you even want to "ban ips for" on your realtek nic asciilifeform ?
mircea_popescu: honestly i'd feel happier with random hp box behind proper nic than with special-gentoo-special-raspberypi with rotm realtek/whatever

asciilifeform: (or how they attached intel nic instead of realtek, for a wider range of magick-packet acceptance)
Framedragger: also iirc x220's come with either intel or realtek wifi adapters. mine is intel

mircea_popescu: the companion to Framedragger 's exploration to be done at home is evidently - there's only 3 chips, right ? get a realtek, an intel and a broad and fuzz them
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-22#1546731 << that's a realtek, you can spot the crab logo with naked eye. ☝︎
asciilifeform: (the other thing realtek is famous for is... having very peculiar definition of 'working chip', see e.g., https://archive.is/uvOwZ )
mircea_popescu: "independents" all appear to be varying degrees of "serials filed off" ; mostly realtek's
asciilifeform: the last 2 are wholly-owned usg thralls, while realtek is taiwanese and famous for, e.g., 'losing' signing certs later used in stuxnet, etc.
asciilifeform: realtek, broadcom, intel.
asciilifeform: they use realtek lock stock and barrel.
asciilifeform: with realtek PHYs. e.g., http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833166096
mircea_popescu: yeah. and i meant, "probably a realtek clone made in south korea".
asciilifeform: does anyone know of a remaining maker of nic chipsets other than intel, broadcom, and realtek ?
asciilifeform: instead of the venerable realtek 'crab'.
ascii_field: just about any realtek works blobless
assbot: RTLSDR.com | All about Realtek RTL2832U based RTL-SDRs ... ( http://bit.ly/1HWUDaw )
asciilifeform: phun phakt. ubiquitous series of ethernet cards by 'realtek' take (optional) microcode updates. (they are volatile, live in a kind of 'patch ram' until next reset.) they do not appear to match any known cpu arch (i tried a dozen or so.)
asciilifeform: decimation: in this case it was on account of the 802.11 thing ('realtek') being a separate pcb
assbot: Realtek - WikiDevi ... ( http://bit.ly/1CC83t9 )
trinque: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Realtek << looks like that realtek chip speaks usb2.0

ascii_field: http://www.cnx-software.com/2014/01/29/acer-aerialcast-miracast-adapter-powered-by-realtek-rtd1185pa-rtl8192dv << similar device
assbot: [PATCH] Add support for Realtek Media Player SoCs ... ( http://bit.ly/1F6Cl4n )
nubbins`: seems goflex tv is based on realtek 1073
pankkake: it's what I did with my thinkpad… got a realtek usb that worked much better than the realtek pci-e on linux
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: realtek is an infamous turdmeister
BingoBoingo: The fucking AMD GPU works, but not the onboard realtek RTL8188CE
