    Hi,

    I was wondering if it's possible to modify TG3 driver in order to prevent
    adapter from using on-board SRAM, and use system RAM instead.

    I have laptop with Broadcom NetLink (BCM57780) adapter under Ubuntu
    12.04. After plugging in the cable, adapter establishes connection with
    router, connects to Internet for few seconds and then the whole system
    completely freezes. It's doing basically the same under Windows.

    I have used Broadcom's utility to test adapter, and the result indicates
    on-board SRAM is faulty ( http://i.imgur.com/MExTE.jpg ).

    Cheers,
    SB
