3c905 - kernel reports errors on first contact from remote ping
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
Description of problem:
3c905 lan card will not transmit / receive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any attempt to use lan
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup remote machine to ping to machine with bug
2. bring up the interface with ifconfig eth0 up
3. error displayed on screen after receiving first ping (remote
machine reports host unreachable)
4. using ifconfig eth0 down; ifconfig eth0 up; will reproduce the
error when the remote machine next pings.
normal ping results
Created attachment 95819 [details]
dmesg log details of the problem with annotations.
I tried a second 3c905 card and got the same results. Eventually
configured a (ISA) ne clone card, this card worked ok so I can only
conclude that the problem is specific to the 3c905 drivers.

You are probably experiencing a bug between Kudzu and the 3c59x
module. As a workaround you can try disabling Kudzu ("chkconfig
--level 345 kudzu off") and reboot the machine.
Disabling Kudzu worked fine, now networking @ 100Mbps :-) Many thanks
for your assistance.
