Ethernet to spartan-3 kit board

  1. Jun 15, 2009 #1
    Hi all


    I am working on a project which contains connecting Ethernet to spartan-3 stater kit board XC3S1000. Both spartan and Ethernet boards are from digilent.
    the board and the Ethernet is in the following links : -

    http://www.digilentinc.com/Data/Products/Net1/NET1-rm.pdf [Broken]

    The problem I am facing is... the software provided from digilent "Digilent Adept Suit" shows no connection and couldn't identify neither the FPGA nor the Ethernet controller.
    I am using parallel port to JTAG programming cable. If am not wrong the Adept software works only with USB-JTAG. Is there anything I can do to overcome that problem or I have to take USB-JTAG?
