Re: [Fwd: Ethernet problem in 2895 kernel]

What type cards? You mention your motherboard type below (Asus A8N-E), but you indicate the onboard nic (eth1) isn't giving you problems.

Have you tried these PCI add-in nics in different slots?

Posting the output of dmesg and lspci would help identify which driver is in play.


I do not recall ever seeing this failure with 2869 and older kernels.

This bug has been present for the last three months.  I wonder if it has
propagated to the commercial Linix products.

Since updating to the FC6 386 2895 kernel I have has a number
of partial failures of the Ethernet system under heavy load.
System: Asus a8n-e socket 939 with 3 GB RAM running 386 FC6.
Eth0 is a PCI 10/100 NIC, eth1 is the onboard gigabit NIC.
NAT controlled by rc.firewall 2.4.  Eth0 connects to the
cable modem, eth1 to the local net.

Under heavy load, the following error messages appear
and then eth0 stops working, severing the internet connection.
I have not seen this problem prior to the 2895 kernel.
