Re: rp8400 875MHz procs

Hi,

We have three rp8400s but we've never seen that before. Of course, we don't have 875Mhz CPUs in them either.

Sounds like maybe a firmware issue, or maybe some setting in the GSP.

You didn't buy them from a guy who also sells used cars did you? ;)

Re: rp8400 875MHz procs

Found the problem there are some dip switch settings that determine the speed
Thanks for the help

What were the dip switch settings to make it work?

Re: rp8400 875MHz procs

So is it a firmware issue or a dip switch issue? Or both?

Hi Houston,

No offense, but you really should start a new thread so Tex isn't saddled with handing out your points.

Best Rgds,

Re: rp8400 875MHz procs

The Dipswitch settings for 750MHz are:

01011111

875MHz:

00111111

0 = off
1 = on

HTH.
What are the chances...
