prism54pci: "phy0: tx overflow." when network traffic is heavy
Last modified: 2008-01-09 12:05:25 EST
Description of problem:
When transferring a lot of data over a prism54pci interface (Netgear WG511 v1
(softmac)), the interface will eventually (sometimes minutes, sometimes hours)
stop transferring any data, and a "kernel: phy0: tx overflow." message will
appear in /var/log/messages. The interface will be unusable until the card is
ejected and reinserted into the pccard slot, causing it to get reinitialized.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
prism54pci firmware version 126.96.36.199
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use a prism54pci interface
2. transfer a lot of data over it
"phy0: tx overflow." message appears, interface no longer transfers data
no "tx overflow" message, interface continues to work
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?
If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
As indicated previously there has been no update on the progress of this bug
therefore I am closing it as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Please re-open if the issue
still occurs for you and I will try to assist in its resolution. Thank you for
taking the time to report the initial bug.
