Description David Kahn 2007-08-18 15:15:06 UTC
Description of problem:

Network doesn't work when upgraded to kernel with Broadcom bcm4401
motherboard network device on Abit IS-10 and Dell Dimension 2400

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
2. reboot
Actual results:

onboard bmc4401 doesn't work (network is physically
connected to the switch, but unable to ping in
or out with kernel Works fine with 2.6.20

Expected results:

The network should work :)

Additional info:

There's a huge thread about config option changes for onboard vs card-based
bcm44xx (b44.c) during 2.6.22-rc2 development. Not sure what (if any) the
outcome was, but for me, my bmc4401 based machines all broke when I upgraded to
fc6 kernel There's a out, and it downloaded, but the release
notes for don't say anything about fixes for bcm440x

Sorry, anywhere I typed bmc4401, I meant Broadcom BCM4401
