Fedora Networking :: Intel Gigabit Card Only Connects At 100Mbps
Jan 24, 2009
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:
NIC: Intel 82574L Gigabit mobo network card Issue: After the server has been up for a random amount of time, the network connection is lost. Attaching a console and looking at ifconfig I see a large number of dropped packets and collisions.
use; Code: lspci -vxx to list the make manufacture of NIC and the device driver it is using.
In this case: Intel 82574L, e1000e Look in var/log/messages to get the version of the driver, in this case 1.0.2 Download .gz file with source code, follow instructions to install newest driver (e1000e.ko), in my case version 1.2.10. [URL]
Ive been trying everything possible, and cant get this Intel card to connect. Here are the details Centos 5.5 Kernel 2.6.18-194.el5 Intel 82577LM Gigabit on dell laptop e6410 Broadband router with gateway 10.54.7.1 My network is 10.54.7.* linux sees the exact card in the configuration utility. If I choose dhcp, and try to bring up teh device, I get "no network, cable unplugged?" error If I configure static ip for eth0 like
10.54.7.2 255.255.0.0 gw 10.54.7.1
The interface will come up (seen in ifconfig) but cant ping the gateway. At one point it did work... I just cant get it back - Ive reinstalled like 4 times... in hopes Id catch something different, no luck. My network serices about 10 pcs many of them centos linux - no problem using static or dhcp with my router- I just got this new laptop and cant get ths card to work.
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).
skinnersbane@albert:~$ sudo ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Clearly my card is running at Gigabit, but why the bad transfer speeds? I am using filezilla for FTP (technically FTPES). I closed every other program. My CPU utilization does seem high and I wonder if this is part of the problem. I had no problems with throughput using either interface in Windows XP just one week ago.
I have an ASUS P5Q PRO motherboard with an integrated Atheros AR8121/AR8113 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.I installed Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid" 64bit Kernel version 22.214.171.124 I have read that the driver isn't in the kernel, but there's a strange thing :
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?
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:
I am looking for a gigabit network card for my centos 5.4 server. I am looking for something known to work well with linux. I have been on the bestbuy site and I found a DLink (DGE-530T) card with support for linux from the vendor but after reading feedback from users with that card I am not so sure it is linux friendly. I am now thinking of buying online.
I've just set up a PC with CentOS 5.3 runing on near identical hardware to an existing 5.2 machine. Motherboard is Asus M2A-VM which I discover by chance generally works very well with CentOS. Ethernet is on board Nvidia.The older machine just did run gigabit speed without any intervention at all, rather to my surprise. The newer machine insists on running at 100 Mbit which is annoying as it is connected to a NAS through a gigabit dumb switch.
The obvious difference between the two is that ethtool on the older machine says that supported ports are TP, and so the port is TP. Whereas the newer machine says that supported ports are TP or MII and insists on running MII. I cannot change this with ethtool -s eth0 port tp. Perhaps not too surprisingly, mii-tool says that the supported speeds range up to 100 Mbit.
I have been trawling the web looking to see how to get my broadcom nic working on my Dell optiplex 380 with fedora 12. Basically it shows up when I run lspci but no where else, unfortunately I have no linux experience. Other things that I have tried were to check the blacklist driver file, which had no reference to the nic.
I have installed Fedora 14 on Intel's DH67BL mother board, which has a on board LAN port, Fedora 14 does not detect on-board LAN. Unfortunately, intel does not provide any driver support for linux OS :-(. However, if I install an additional LAN card, Fedora 14 detects it and everything works fine.
After my upgrade from karmic to lucid (clean install, not upgrade through update manager) it seems my ethernet is running at 10mbps instead of 100mbps. Since I have a 100mbit fiber connection it's pretty annoying. Is there a way to force my ethernet to use 100mbps?

Just did a clean install on a Dell Latitude E6400 of Slackware 13.1 and, for the most part, all is working great. Got wicd installed and wireless came right up, nvidia drivers installed and video is fantastic, but for some reason my wired connection isn't happening. The device is detected, but I can't get an IP.

Lets assume we have a 100mbps connection between two servers in same switch. then How much is the total throughput of the connection between servers. For example if I am downloading with 70mbps from other server , do I still have 100mbps upload BW available ? or 30mbps is available ? in other words for a 100mbps connection , the limit of download+upload is 100mbps ? or we have 100mbps download and 100mbps upload available ?
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.
I'm giving up trying to install Lenny as a server. The netinstall won't recognise my realtek 8139 chipset on the PCI ethernet NIC. I've googled so much i'm freakin loosing it. The install fails while getting an IP adress via DHCP. So a new networkcard is in order. Why not go for gigabit lan then. Which PCI gigabit LAN card is 100% guaranteed to work with Lenny net install cd?
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?
I am running Lucid Lynx and have only noticed this problem in the past couple weeks. Before Lucid I ran Jaunty & Karmic on this same box, although I installed Lucid as a clean install. My problem is that up to 5 or 6 times per minute my networking card drops its connection and then has its connection re-established. I have an integrated Intel 82566DC gigabit card on an Intel Motherboard DG35EC connected to a 10/100 network and am running the 64-bit version of Lucid. I've done some considerable searching on this problem and although I've seen many references to similar problems dating back several years, I have found none that seem to have any solutions that do anything for me. I never had this problem under any prior version of Linux on this box (all prior versions were also 64-bit).
In short, this block of messages repeats in my messages log:
May 18 20:18:50 mark-desktop kernel: [10121.062129] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Down May 18 20:18:52 mark-desktop kernel: [10122.730873] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: RX/TX May 18 20:18:52 mark-desktop kernel: [10122.730876] 0000:00:19.0: eth0: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO
Most of the time I don't even see that the connection has gone down. Sonetimes everything seems to be operating fine for a half-hour or more, although it could be dropping out and coming back really quickly all of the time. Sometimes it goes out for 10 seconds.Sometimes it goes out for many minutes and I can get networking back by killing disabling networking and then re-enabling it. It's quite annoying.
I'm sorry if I'm duplicating an existing issue on this forum, but I can't find this exact problem anywhere. Does anyone have any clever ideas about how to fix this?
I am using Fedora 8 on my laptop, newly installed, I can see the network card(Linksys WPc54G v2) and Network Manager sees the wireless router, however as soon as I tell it to connect my computer freezes and I have to restart. I searched for solutions but all I found was Ubuntu problems.
Actually it seems that the trigger is when the keyring comes up and asks for a password. As soon as I start typing the pass it locks.
I have an IBM X3250 M3 server were Iam trying to install Fedora 9 version on RAID 1 and am unable to configure it. Some body guide me with LAN card driver for Inetl 8000 series Gigabit NIC card driver for fedora 9.
I have a Dell Vostro 200 with the above wireless card in it and I cant get it to work. I have been on Intel's website and downloaded e1000-8.0.18 and installed as the instructions. But it is still greyed out on the Network Manager. I have just installed Ubuntu Desktop the latest current version.
I have an old Toshiba Satellite A30 Notepad. I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 onto it and everything but WiFi works. I've installed wicd and several other network tools but just can't get Ubuntu to let me use the WiFi connection (the option is greyed out).I know the card works because the last OS (Windows XP) used it without any problems. The card is detected, the drivers are installed and the hardware (slider) switch is set to on.I think the issue is related to the Radio Frequency Kill Switch being on but I don't know how to turn it off.The output from various commands are:
I got a little problem with network manager. I got two connections in it, with two different DNS-Servers, because the one of my provider is very slow I surf with opendns, but sometimes that slows down too, so I want to change if necessary. Both connections got the same fixed IP.That worked all fine, until I got my new router (it's a Netgear WGU 624). It's connected by cable and I configured it like the old one. But for some reason instead of connecting to the manually configured connections, my fedora 10 creates a new one "auto eth 0" with a dynamic IP. So every time I boot or switch on from standby my PC connects with this one and I have to manually set it to the right connection. There's no chance to edit or delete it cause those two buttons are grey and won't work. I also tried restarting network manager manually and I also tried starting it with su as root.
This is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell XPS M1530. I'm getting very frequent disconnects to my wireless network, despite good signal. I have wicd and nm-applet running side by side, wicd doesn't work by itself and nm-applet won't get a new IP after reassociating with the AP.
Wireless connection is steady in Windows 7, so I'm guessing it's a problem with the driver.
