I try the lastest CVS, but it don't solve the INFDROP. and some how the card hang up, I need to reboot..

Do you mean, the driver pass all packet no matter multicast or unicast to the firmware, then the firmware descide when to send?? Is there any material on the web, so I can know more on the programming of this chip or card??
