There's no drivers for it, and can't act as a NIC to the OS over PCIe. the PCIe connection is used for managing and configuring the ASIC with broadcom SDK calls. You'll need the original software/binary that the manufacturer wrote for it...

    Those are just the setenv commands that saves the name of the images, so the bootloader knows what image names to use later when you run the actual update commands. They don't do anything themselves. After that, there's the update_uboot command, then a reset command so the new bootloader takes...

    did you first flash the newer bootloader, then reset, *then* flash 8090mc? It will work fine if you do so (as the guide says)

    those are matching pinouts. transmit to recieve and vice versa. they're standard cisco style rj45 serial ports and will work with any of those adapters, if you're not getting output it usually turns out to be a driver issue under windows with all the ftdi's and related knockoffs. sometimes a...
