OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - "Atheros Communications L1 Gigabit Ethernet (rev B0)" Wasn't Recognized
May 5, 2011
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.
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 126.96.36.199 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?
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.
I'm trying to get WiFi up and running on an older desktop PC. lspci gives me the following information about the WiFi card: 00:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01) Is there an RPM package for the driver that I need? If no, what should I do to install the driver manually? The PC in question doesn't have any other form of direct internet access. It does have an Ethernet port, but the WiFi router is too far away to hook it up to the access point directly.

i have installed openSUSE 11.2 on a dell dimension 2400. My Ethernet card wasn't working, so i am using a wireless interface, but it doesn't work either. It worked on a dell dimension 4400, but when it gets to the activate network my system freezes. Should i re-install my system, or should i post this under the hardware category.

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:
# tar xfvj install_v10.85.3.3.tar.bz2
# cd DriverInstall
# ./install.sh .....
# 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.
I am attempting to install Debian 5.0 amd64 to my Toshiba laptop, which has an Atheros AR8131 Gigabit network card.Unfortunately the installer is not finding the card. I have downloaded the Linux drivers for my card to a USB drive. When I tell the installer to load the drivers from removable media it is telling me that it is not able to read the files. I am guessing that I either need to place the files into a particular named directory or I have the wrong file format (currently a .tar)

I'm using Ubuntu Server 10.10 64 bit and am trying to get my Atheros AR81xx gigabit ethernet controller to use 1 gbps.I have 2 ethernet controllers, one's a linksys 100 mbps (which is connected to the router which goes to the internet) and the other is the Atheros gigabit controller that is connected to a Windows desktop that has an NVIDIA gigabit ethernet controller (for faster file transfers with a gigabit connection) I've ruled out that the problem is with the desktop as I plugged the windows PC into my macbook (which has a gigabit controller), and both the macbook and desktop report a gigabit connection.

I plug the windows desktop into the server and I only get 100 mbps. I am using a Cat 6 patch cable. I've tried several methods with ethtool to force it into 1 gbps mode, but none work. I've tried using a different cable. no change. I've tried making windows force a 1 gbps connection, didn't have the option to in the driver configuration. Only 10/100 configs. the commands I've tried in ethtool
ethtool -s eth0 speed 1000
Reports no error, but no effect. I've tried forcing off auto negotiation (I had a hunch it was causing the problem)
ethtool -s eth0 speed 1000 duplex full autoneg off
I get this
Cannot set new settings: Invalid argument
not setting speed
not setting duplex
not setting autoneg
I tried each setting individually, and autoneg won't set, the others will (but not do anything)
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).

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.
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

[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

[10488.711352] 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?

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)?
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.
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

I realise there are a few threads of issues with the AR8152 chipset and Ubuntu 11.04, however, my issue does not appear to be the same as others, nor does there appear to be a consistent solution yet. My ethernet worked fine in Ubuntu 10.10, but after upgrading to 11.04, I experience the errors I am about to explain. I also experience these when booting off a Ubuntu 11.04 Live CD, so it's not just the upgrade the caused the issues. The issue is, if I turn on my system without the ethernet cable plugged in, and then plug the ethernet cable in once I've logged into Ubuntu, the system will not detect it, at all. No amount of network manager of dhclient eth0 will get it to function, however, the device itself still appears in the system. If I turn the system on with the ethernet plugged in, however, it will get an IP address and function correctly. I tried to download the drivers from Atheros and build them, but for whatever reason it complained about me not having autoconf.h or automake.h (can't remember which), despite having build-essentials and linux-headers-generic installed.

I have an absolutely bizarre hardware issue (concerning the Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller) that has been giving me quite a bit of grief for a while, and having completely hit a wall on this one, I'm a reasonably-experienced Linux user of several years, and have been running Ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer AOD250 netbook for several months out. I know that this model has wireless issues out-of-the-box (easily fixed), but it did not have any noticeable ethernet issues. That is, until I attempted an installation of Arch Linux.

During the Arch Linux installation, the ethernet card was initially detected, but unable to be used (because of a bad module in the kernel released with the installer). As I didn't know the fix for this at the time, I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 9.10. This time, however, the system failed to recognize the wired ethernet whatsoever. Instead, the external activity lights for the port (green and orange) are ALWAYS on, yet the device doesn't function.
I have done a successful install of the latest drivers directly from Atheros for the device and have them automatically loading with the kernel during boot, but as the device isn't recognized, the drivers aren't doing any good. Relevant information:
