Fedora Hardware :: Intel Gigabit Ethernet(e1000e) Broke On 2.6.35 Kernel / Resolve This?
Nov 8, 2010
Just a heads up to others. There is a kernel regression in the 2.6.35 kernel with regard to, some but not all Intel Gigabit ethernet adapters using the e1000e driver. After an otherwise successful upgrade from fedora 13 to 14, no ethernet connection could be made while using the upgraded 2.6.35 kernel that comes with fedora 14. The 2.6.34 fedora 13 kernels work fine and were fortunately still available after the upgrade.

I have personally seen the identical malfunction on all 2.6.35 kernels I've tried with both Arch and Aptosid and have seen similar reported problems on the Gentoo forum. In each case, going back to a 2.6.34 or upgrading to a 2.6.36 kernel solved the problem so this is almost certainly a kernel issue. My onboard Intel Gigabit ethernet adapter is:
$ lspci -vv | grep Ethernet
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
I believe the intel ICH8 chipset motherboards are the ones primarily effected.
I'm having issues with Ubuntu 8.04 to see my Intel 82574L ethernet card. Ubuntu is not detecting it at all.

I downloaded the drivers from
copied it to the server, untarred, make install ,and now i'm getting notifications that kernel-devel is not installed. I installed linux-headers from the install cd ( ihave the alternate and server one), but i cannot find any kernel-devel or linux-kernel-devel. The driver still does not want to build after installing linux-headers.
I need to use Ubuntu 8.04 due to some specific requirements, do i need the network cards to work.

First if I try to run lspci from command line it doesn't reports Atheros Ethernet Controller.
Second If I try to run lshw -C network from command line it doesn't reports Atheros Ethernet Controller.
Third if I run ifconfig it only returns my loopback address.
Can I suppose that my Ethernet Intel Gigabit Controller is broken or that Atheros driver is missing?

I receive the same result with the original e1000e driver from the distribution, the latest elrepo driver and the latest driver from Intel site (as seen in the example). I have tried also 2.6.37 kernel version - with the same result. The adapter however works fine under Windows (MiniXP from Hiren's BootCD) and with Ubuntu 10.10 LiveCD.
I just built some machines with the Intel 82574L gigabit ethernet chip, loaded Fedora 14, and discovered a problem with the e1000e driver dying after a few minutes. A little time spent perusing the web told me that the same driver had problems in Fedora 12 and Fedora 13 as well. Congrats to Fedora for the hat trick.As of kernel 18.104.22.168-74.fc14.x86_64, e1000e driver 1.0.2-k4 still had bugs.[URL]

I recently swapped out my old network switch (10/100) for a Netgear GS105 gigabit switch. With the exception of my Fedora 10 laptop all the rest successfully connect at gigabit speeds. But my laptop (with an Intel Corporation 82566MM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)) will only connect at 100Mbps. If I look in the logs for my network card here is what I get:

Ethernet Controller : Intel Corporation 82579V Gigabit Network Connection
So, I created a ifcfg-eth0 file on /etc/sysconfig/network-script because it doesn't exist :
Then, I restart network service, but eth0 is down, no device found for the connection eth0.
I have loaded Suse 10.3 on a system that has 4 Ethernet ports, all Intel chipsets. 2 ports have the 82571 chipset, 1 port has the 82573 chipset and the last one has the 82567. The 82567 chipset can use the e1000 driver and the 8257x chipsets require the e1000e driver. We are only actually using the 82571 ports.

When the system is booted, the 82567 seems to get bound to the e1000 driver and the 82573 gets bound to the e1000e driver. Doing an "lsmod" I see both drivers loaded. It appears the 82571 drivers are getting bound to the e1000 driver which is a major problem. They work for a while but eventually they lock up with enormous error counts according to "ifconfig". How I know the e1000 driver is bound to the 82571 ports is that when I remove it(modprobe -r e1000) and then try to use one of them, I get a "network unreachable". When e1000 is loaded these ports seem to work fine. I tried modding the file in /etc/sysconfig/hardware that corresponds to the PCI address of these ports(i.e., hwcfg-bus-pci-0000:08:00.0) to force the module to e1000e, but no luck there either.
We have a Linux box which acts a a file server. Currently, files and directories are exported using NFS.At the moment, we are a bit concern on its data transfer performance. FYI, we are using a embedded Gigabit Ethernet port on the file server. We ran a few simple write tests between NFS client (also utilizes GigE port) and the NFS server. In these tests, both NFS server and client are both connected directly to each other with a Cat5E cable. Unfortunately, the write/transfer speed results are not as per our expectation. It scores roughly about 11-12MByte/s, where as theoretically Gigabit Ethernet transfer rate is able to reach up to approximately 120MByte/s.I wouldn't expect to reach the theoretical max transfer rate (it would be great if we can , but I would appreciate if you guys can share with us in terms of the following :

1) What's the practical max data transfer rate which you guys managed to observe in a normal Gigabit based connection? What about jumbo frames configuration?
2) Is there any additional tuning/configuration we need to do within the OS to reach those practical max data transfer rate figure?
3) Does PCI-e / system bus plays a role in achieving this speed? For example, we are using the embedded GigE port and we heard some people says embedded ports are actually sharing the system bus and resources with other devices, which might adds into performance issue. Correct me if I'm wrong.
4) Does converting to Cat6 cabling will guarantee an increase in the data transfer performance?
5) In the future (once we are clear on how much single GigE transfer rate we can go) , we are looking into doing bonding since that the NFS server's shared directory/volume read-write speed is way much higher (i.e 400-600MByte/s). Will bonding allow us to achieve higher NFS read/write speed? What are the bonding modes best used for this purposes? Appreciate if anybody who has experience in doing bonding for NFS can share their experience.
I installed ubuntu server 9.10. During the install the onboard 10/100 land card was automatically installed and was used for updating packages. I just put in a DGE-530T gigabit ethernet card. I can see it recognized under lspci.01:07.0 Ethernet controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-530T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev 11) (rev 11). It does not show up under ifconfig. The CD came with linux drivers. The readme talked about recompiling the kernel and a whole bunch of other stuff. Google was equally confusing. What do I do?

My laptop only has a 100Mbit ethernet port, so I bought two external USB gigabit ethernet dongles in the hope of getting faster ethernet speeds. I have never had trouble with Linux supporting ethernet before, but neither of these devices are working. One is an ASIX AX88179 (by TrendNet) and the other is a Realtek RT8153 (by Anker). When I plug these devices in, I get network devices called enx00e04ca82300 or enxd8eb97b61e4d (instead of eth0/eth1 as I would expect).

I can manually set an IP address with "ifconfig enx00e04ca82300 x.x.x.x up" and manually add a route and my network connection works at gigabit speeds. However, the long enx... network device name does not appear to be valid in some sense: tools like dhclient or iptraf or network-manager fail with messages like "no such device" (well, network-manager just hangs). I don't know if it's because the name is so long or because they are not fully registered inside the kernel.
I have vmware workstation installed, and it does some strange things with network devices (setting up bridges for everything). I have disabled its services and see the same behaviour. This looks like a kernel bug to me but it's possible it is a vmware issue. vmware works fine with my wireless and 100Mbit ethernet (eth0 and wlan0).
Some dmesg for the Realtek device:
Code: Select all[10264.619420] usb 4-3.1.1: reset SuperSpeed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd

The Realtek device often crashes after just a few gigabytes have been transferred, with dmesg like this:
Code: Select all[10485.761603] net_ratelimit: 10 callbacks suppressed
[10485.761618] r8152 4-3.1.1:1.0 enx00e04ca82300: Tx status -71

[10488.711352] r8152 4-3.1.1:1.0 enx00e04ca82300: Tx status -71
I have not investigated the ASIX device as much. However, my original 100Mbit ethernet has an ASIX chipset (AX88772) and that works perfectly. I have not observed the ASIX device crashing yet so I am using that for now (haven't used it for long yet though). But as before the device name appears to be invalid and I cannot run tools like dhclient. why two gigabit adapters with completely different chipsets would show up with long device names and support low-level stuff like ARP, ping, and static IPs, but fail with dhclient & network-manager? And the Realtek device seems to like crashing too.
With what command i can check whether my Ethernet card supports gigabit speed Ethernet or not?

I have 2 10.04 machines connected through a switch, both with gigabit on board ethernet. Both machines show 1000 Mb/s connections.When I transfer large files (gig plus up to multi-gig) the maximum I get according to ftp 11472 kB/s.I did rough computer school math in my head and that seems low but I'll admit I know very little about network transfer rates.My question is what transfer rates should I expect to get between the 2?

I have one eth0 device which is onboard lan and that was correctly recognised and activated. The second device is F5D5055 Belking USB Gigabit ethernet adapter. There was no problem with it whatsoever under Fedora. According to all the info it should be automatically recognised on kernel 2.6.14 and later. However when I plug it into the USB port, I can see its correct name in the device manager but it is not recognised as a network device. I have configured my Fedora as a firewall/router for my lan and definitely want to use that interface.
Hopefully without needing to do anything in the realm of compiling kernel, cause that is where my half a day long attempt to fix the problem left me.

Cost effective (the people want cheap) solution to increase server storage space with as little impact on throughput (what I want) as possible. I have a server that sends instructions to 20 clients to perform certain tasks. The clients send gigs of data back to the server for storage.

Network: Gigabit Ethernet
Clients: (20) HP, Solaris, Linux
Linux Server: Dell R805 PowerEdge (QUAD Core Athlons 16 gigs of ram, 4 gigabit ports.
Selected directories are mounted (NFS) by clients. One directory to be mounted by the clients contains executable files. Mount commands are sent from the server (rsh) to the clients. Yes I know (ssh) but this is how the software was originally written so let's go with it.
The clients then receive commands to execute the binaries contained within the mounted directory. The binaries basically create an image of the clients filesystem including special applications. The client then sends the files and directories to the server which stores this �image�. This process can be reversed to restore a client to the initial baseline image.
In a nut shell, 20 clients are sending gigs of data to the server for storage. I need to attach a NAS (gigabit) to extend the storage capability of the server. The server would mount (NFS) to the hard drives on the NAS. The NAS, configured as a �direct attached storage� device (DAS), means the storage device is connected directly to the server and not the network (which makes it a DAS). This would provide direct storage expansion for the server. However, this configuration cannot be a bottleneck that significantly hinders performance.
1) Will a low end NAS (gigabit port) work? (NetGear 1TB ReadyNAS Duo, RND2110-100NAS) or something with a higher rated throughput (QNAP TS-239 Pro II)
2) Low end won't work, go with �?
3) Does the processor on the NAS play any role that would determine the performance of this configuration given that the server would mount directly to a directory on this device (DAS/NAS)?

I just installed ubuntu as my primary OS, but I have the disk with XP on it and I don't want to go back, but I need faster network connectivity. I have a T60p with Intel Gigabit jacked into my Gigabit router which also has my desktop (running XP) and my NAS. If I FTP files from my NAS (or SCP), I get transfer speeds around 250-500 KB/s (which is not very fast). On this same switch, from my XP desktop I get transfer speeds around 12 MB/s. I get the same speeds using my 802.11n card (Atheros) as with the ethernet NIC (250-500 KB/s).The drivers for the ethernet card and the atheros card are e1000e and ath9k respectively.I have disabled IPv6. Since the problem occurs using either interface, I am just going to concentrate on fixing it for the Ethernet interface (since I believe it to be a systemwide problem).
