Hardware :: Detect Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet On Ubuntu 8.04?
Feb 14, 2011
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.
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]
I am using fedora core 2. I used the oldest version of fedora just because im running only 1 system, my specification is: HP compaq PC,pentuim4, 512mb memory, 40gig hdd, Intel board. I have two units same spec..windows xp and the other one is fedora 2. The windows xp normally detect the lan card, but when I try to fedora2, I try to active it and seems no lan card detecting,. How to detect broadcom nextreme gigabit ethernet to my fedora 2 OS???
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 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 184.108.40.206 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 got a SuperMicro X8SIL-F board, and I'm having trouble getting the onboard Ethernet controllers to work. They are both Intel 82574L Gigabit. One of them has (rev ff) at the end in lspci.
Out of the box, both controllers show up as eth0 and eth1, but the connection on either is flaky and unreliable. I installed an updated driver from the Intel Download Center, but now I lost one of my controllers and only have eth0. They still both show up in lspci. I installed the driver by extracting the archive and running make install in the src folder, then restarting.
I am trying to use a rig with Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H mother board and Intel 82574L based NIC (EXPI9301CTBLK) under CentOS 5.5. Unfortunately I have issue with the NIC - during boot it fails to initialize:
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 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?
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 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?
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).
Realtek device 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 [10264.634651] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: xHCI xhci_drop_endpoint called with disabled ep ffff8800c4221a00 [10264.634653] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: xHCI xhci_drop_endpoint called with disabled ep ffff8800c4221a48 [10264.634655] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: xHCI xhci_drop_endpoint called with disabled ep ffff8800c4221a90 [10264.647842] r8152 4-3.1.1:1.0 eth0: v1.06.0 (2014/03/03) [10264.647902] usbcore: registered new interface driver r8152 [10271.452198] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): enx00e04ca82300: link is not ready [10275.094334] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): enx00e04ca82300: link becomes ready
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 [10488.694340] 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.
I have spent them with Fedora and liked it a lot. Today I decided to install CentOS as this looks like something I would like to be using in the future. However a problem I could not solve came right at me after the first boot.
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.
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.

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.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION 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.
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:
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 a dual boot system (Suse 10.0 and Windows XP Pro) in my notebook. My notebook is toshiba m358, which has a Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Network Card (Marvell 88E8072) on it. My problem is this: in Windows XP Pro, the network card works well, but in openSUSE, the light on the network card does not turn on. I believe that there is no driver for the network card. I have tried several ways to solve this problem:
1. Download Marvell 88E8072's driver from "[URL]", whose name is "install_v10.85.3.3.tar.bz2", and then install it with following commands:
Code: # tar xfvj install_v10.85.3.3.tar.bz2 # cd DriverInstall # ./install.sh .....
Code: # modprobe sk98lin # WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. After I reboot the openSUSE, the light of network card is still off.
2. Follow "[URL]" to configure the Marvell 88E8072. It also does not work.
Actually, the title I was looking for was Belkin Gigabit Ethernet ExpressCard not seen on Dell Precision M6500 with CentOS 5.5 _when system boots with no link on this card_. When I boot this system with a cable connected to the Ethernet port, the card shows up (dmesg, lspci 0e:00.0 and ifconfig). When I boot it with nothing connected, it's like it doesn't exist. I know I could make it work with a loopback plugged in at all times, but am looking for a more graceful solution. Here are messages logs from when it's recognized
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.
having used SuSE Linux ever since the April 1995 release, I thought installing 11.4 would be a straightforward task. Since it wasn't, I'm summarising here my experience. My PC is built around a 3-year old Asus P5B-plus mainboard, i.e. certainly not brand-new hardware.
1 - on installation, my "Atheros Communications L1 Gigabit Ethernet (rev b0)" wasn't recognized, so I had to "modprobe atl1" from one of the consoles available during installation. That worked but the installer didn't pick up the fact that network was now available.
2 - after completion of the installation, online-updating for the first time and installing the nvidia driver for my "nVidia Corporation G71 [GeForce 7300 GS] (rev a1)" the KDE desktop showed the "blank desktop with mouse pointer" syndrome. Googling yielded that desktop effects had to be disabled in the kwinrc configuration file.
3 - logging in today after an online update, firefox (MozillaFirefox-4.0.1-0.2.2.x86_64) segfaults on start-up while loading the default website (opensuse.org). firefox will run in safemode but it won't run in normal mode, even with all add-ons disabled.
Now I don't have a useable system after a couple of hours of trying. Fortunately, I have a working installation of openSUSE 11.2 but I believe that updates for that distribution will be stopped shortly.
so, when i first got my laptop it came with vista and the ethernet worked fine, then when I decided to install Karmic about 9 months ago it still worked fine. After a while the update for lucid came out so I upgraded to that and then the ethernet started getting buggy. It would only work about half the time that i wanted it too and the other half of the time it would just stare at me and not move anywhere. So along with a couple other bugs I decided to format my harddrive and downgrade back to karmic and await the 10.10 release. unfortunatly my ethernet woes carried with me and they still would only show up on occasion. then about half way through my time with karmic round 2 it stopped altogether, and with the upgrade back to lucid it hasn't seemed to solve itself.
I ran through ifconfig -a, lspci and sudo ifup -a but they all tell me that the device doesn't exist.
I'm installing Debian 5.0.8 on a Dell Latitude E6410 using the network install x86 CD.
Unfortunately, it won't detect my Ethernet adapter. Specifically, I get the error: No Ethernet card was detected. If you know the name of the driver needed by your Ethernet card, you can select it from the list.
i install devian squeeze with the netinstall iso, all work fine except for the auto-detect of my ethernet card.i have a mother asrock p4i45gv with an onboard ethernet card realtek rtl8139/810x family fast ethernet NIC.i try everithing, the ifconfig shows only lo, but ifconfig -a shows a eth0 any ideas?
I installed the OpenSUSE 11 on my IBM T43 laptop. After installation finish I found the Yast can't detect the integrated ethernet cardBroadcomCorporationNetXtremeBCM5751MGigabitEthernet PCI Express(rev 11).
