Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122220
Problems with ethernet card (3c59x)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem:
eth0 seems to have serious problems communicating with external world.
tcpdump shows outgoing packets but nothing coming back, and my hub's
leds don't indicate any data around, so packets never phisically leave
my network card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've just tried one installation (custom), with common packets
selected. I've been redhat user since version 5, so my installation
procedure is roughly the same as always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2
2. Configure ethernet as DHCP (shouldn't matter)
3. Watch your NIC not to work.
Actually after messing for a few minutes with ifconfig up/down,
tcpdump, ping, and so on, i started getting the following kernel
message every 5-10 seconds (i didn't measure it):
eth0: Transmit error, Tx status register 90.
Flags; bus-master 1, dirty 1(1) current 17(1)
Transmit list 1785a340 vs. 1985a2a0.

I'd like to attach "lspci -v" output but you ran out of disk
This should be the relevant part anyway:
02:0b.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905 100BaseTX [Boomerang]
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 9
I/O ports at d400
maybe this is related to bugs #107389 (I described my problem there)
and #116095. I have (lspci -v):
00:0f.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c590 10BaseT [Vortex]
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 248, IRQ 12
I/O ports at d000 [size=32]
Expansion ROM at cffe0000 [disabled] [size=64K]
