Ubuntu :: Gigabit Network Connection Stuck At 100 Mb/s?
Aug 12, 2011
I have a machine with an MSI motherboard and gigabit ethernet. However, it only reports being connected at 100Mb/s. I have tried using ethtool to force the speed to gigabit but it doesn't seem to have any effect. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04. Does anyone know a way other than ethtool to set the network speed?
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)
As a random thought I purged the firmware-realtek package and rebooted. Ethernet works fine now??
Fresh Jessie installed this morning with KDE. Wired worked fine during installation and initial boot. Reboot after package installation and only wireless is working right now. I did install the realtek firmware as part of my normal package list.
This is /var/log/syslog when it stopped working, and hasn't reconnected since. Cable is fine as it was working perfectly with a live Ubuntu shortly before I installed the system with Debian.
I have Debian 8.2 with KDE 4.14 and everything runs perfect, except for the internet connection. This problem happens randomly when I turn on my machine. Sometimes when the desktop loads, the connection is already settled.
But sometimes when the desktop loads, the wifi icon is still loading and keeps stuck at "setting network address". Since this problem happens randomly I really don't know what is happening here. My wifi chip is this:
I'm running a wired gigabit card using the atl1c driver. It works fine, but I don't get gigabit, only 100 Mbps. I have a gigabit switch and other Ubuntu machines on my network are gigabit. Is there any way this could be a software/configuration issue, or is the only likely explanation that my wires are of sub-par quality somewhere?
I recently did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my machine. It previously had windows 7 on it and everything worked flawlessly. Now the gigabit LAN connection only connects at 10Mb/s under Ubuntu. I installed a virtual machine with windows 7 and there it connects at 1Gb/s.
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.
We have an old Zonet 10/100 switch in our home network that locks up whenever there's a power glitch longer than about a microsecond. (OK. It's not that bad but if the lights flicker, I usually end up going down to the basement to see if the switch is hung.) None of the computers or peripherals are affected by the glitches, BTW. Power-cycle the switch and everything starts working again. After putting up with this for months I finally picked up a Netgear 8-port 10/100/1000 switch to replace the Zonet. Unfortunately, when the Netgear switch is in the network, everything slows to a crawl before completely freezing up. Pinging other systems barely worksname would not work.Pinging another system by its IP address worked a little but packet losses of 70%-80% were the best I saw. At first. Then it gets to where the loss is 100%.
All systems were rebooted after the Netgear switch was inserted into the network. The systems that were capable of gigabit connections autosensed the new switch and set their port speed accordingly. And that's about all that works when the Netgear switch is present. (The Zonet is back in the network now.)One thing I have not tried is forcing the port speed on the gigabit-capable systems to 100Mb and re-inserting the Netgear switch into the network to see if the problem if due to running some of the ports at 1000Mb.The systems on the network are running various versions of Linux (with different kernel versions, of course). Most are due for upgrades to get them current but I was planning on hitting the systems that had gigabit-capable ethernet interfaces thinking that a.) 100Mb speeds have been around forever and no problems have been seen when everything was running at 100Mb in the past and b.) the gigabit support for the older kernels should be better (one system only supports an MTA of 1500 max at 1000Mb).
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.

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.
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'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 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.
I am trying to Setup citrix ICA client 9 on Ubuntu 9.04 Server. I installed it very easily and I am not getting any lib error also. But when I try to connect to the citrix server, it fails with a pop up saying "Error in Network Connection Network or Dialup connection may be preventing ......" This is driving me crazy from 3 days. My project is to check the feasiblity of a Linux desktop
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
I haven't come across this bit of 'elitism' before but it seems with this install one MUST have a working net connection. Why is this? How do people without net at all get to install Karmic Koala?
I am using the alternate install from a USB stick (UNetbootin) and I have to use a separate USB WiFi dongle (not the Wifi built into this Thinkpad T43). The installer does not recognise the difference, so consequently it fails to find the dongle and gets stuck in a loop between 'Net access failed' and 'Searching for a local mirror' - I don't understand why it needs a mirror at this stage anyway as I downloaded the correct and complete .iso
Major catch22 for me as I am attempting a fresh install due to the upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 having totally screwed up my system - no ALSA, App menu gone doo-lally, etc etc - far too much mess to sort out.
On top of that, the trackpoint button has stopped working altogether and no amount of Fn+F8 switching makes any difference. Hmm.
Edit: Trackpoint somehow got disabled in BIOS during above aborted install.
I am finding the following problem. Just wanted to know anyone else has experienced these types of issues.My laptop is debian squeeze x86 with custom 220.127.116.11 hand compiled kernel whereas the desktop where I am doing ssh is a dual boot system with debian squeeze x86_64 with custom 18.104.22.168 kernel and ubuntu 10.04 x86_64. Whenever the desktop is running ubuntu, there is no problem with ssh. But when it is running squeeze many times ssh hangs, just after issuing the command. Sometimes it asks for password and then do nothing, otherwise it just remains at the ssh line itself Even the escape (~.) does not have any effect on that. Only thing possible is to kill the ssh process. There used to be no problem last week, but I think after an upgrade either on laptop or desktop, things went this way.
I need to setup an Ubuntu Server to handle backups over the network (probably rsync over ssh). That server will then transfer the backup data offsite over a secondary external data line.How can I configure the ethernet interfaces to handle such a scenario?
All I am trying to do is gain access to the internet and install wine. Here's the problem. Ubuntu won't recognize any drivers or networks. And I do mean none. This is what I get when I try to find drivers. [URL]
In order to gain a wireless network card driver and go into the network configuration to enable the driver, I figured I'd install Wine so I can use my network card driver CD to install the driver for it. But here's the thing, I can't get Wine because I have no access to the internet. And to gain access to the internet, I need wine. How on earth do I go about getting either? I'm stuck in limbo right now.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
1 linksys router: gets the net from PPPOE and give the network DHCP. The router IP is 192.168.1.1. 1 windows laptop that work wireless and wired. 1 debian desktop that work wired and not working wireless. THe problem with the debian desktop is like this: I have a TP-Link TL-WN321G installed and found by lsusb command. I make a wireless connection WPA Personal (just like the router settings) it says i am connected to the wl network but no internet connection. the route command give me this:
I tryed with wicd who said that the connection is WEP (and it's not, it is setup to WPA on the router and the network-manager conncetion) and when i try to connect i get bad password. I tryed with network-manager uninstalled and no chance.
im on node1 when i type the command ssh node2@ip the terminal hangs up a bit then an error message stating that connection timeout but here is a thing: i cant ping to node2 but i can terminate the ping manually using ctrl+c when i terminate the ping usual message appears stating 10 packets transmitted, 100% loss
ps: when i go to node3 and ssh to node2 it works fine and also i can ping from node3 to node2 very fine. and the firewalls are down at all nodes -all wired connection over a switch
I can make a connection to the vpn server, the connection starts, but nothing happens! My IP address remains the same as previous! There is nothing added to my Knetworkmanager, I'm a beginner I should use a pcf file for my vpn connection. I use it properly, I'm sure because the connection starts and an icon is added to my panel and remains until I disconnect.
I checked it via ifconfig -a, the last part (which is for vpn) is:
I just installed openSUSE dual-boot with windows. Wireless works fine on windows. Only ethernet works on openSUSE. At first, it couldn't even find my wireless network. With my friend's help we experimented and tried everything to find the driver for my broadcam4312 driver.
Later, my friend some update from the official openSUSE peeps... Then, the wireless could my network. I entered in my password and then hoped for the best but then it got stuck on the Obtaining IP Adress part. I know I got the rite password.
i'm using opensuse 11.3 and can't connect to the internet, my eth0 interface (which would be my modem i suppose) is found and when i "activate" it with ifup eth0, it gets stuck waiting for data (says so in ifstatus). If i try with knetworkmanager it is also stuck and doesn't connect to eth0. If i try to make it connect at boot, it doesn't work either.
I think the problem might be that in windows xp my modem has a "limited connection" but i can connect with my pppoe password anyway, but opensuse won't let me connect until it finds eth0 is working correctly which it never will because of how the internet company configures the modems i think. I don't know with which command i could "force" the pppoe connection even without a good connection to the modem, maybe that would work. But on the other hand, with other distros i can connect just fine so i don't know really.
I am using 11.3 on one machine and 11.2 on the other (a netbook). 11.4 won't install on either and 11.3 on the netbook fails to install as well.
I am using the same setup as I have always used when both systems ran 11.2 (details below) but now I can only mount a drive in one direction. In the other direction the mount command gets stuck with no error message until it eventually times out. I can ping and ssh the machines from each other without difficulty.
Even in the direction in which the mount apparently works (11.2 mounting a drive on the 11.3 machine) when I try to copy files across nothing actually happens.
exportfs -a was run successfully on the exporting machine, and nfsserver is running on both machines as does nfs client.
The exporting machine is 192.168.1.102 (eeelinux) and the other machine is 192.168.1.101 (nina).
Details: The /etc/exports file on the exporting machine (192.168.1.102) looks like this: eeelinux:/home/naima # more /etc/exports # See the exports(5) manpage for a description of the syntax of this file. # This file contains a list of all directories that are to be exported to # other computers via NFS (Network File System).
I have 2 computer: 1 computer install ubuntu v9.10, in this computer already installed openssh-server and openssh-client, and 1 computer install windows. In computer with windows , i used putty connect to computer with ubuntu, but i can't connect. I don't understand what's error. In the Putty , i configured: IP : IP address of computer Ubuntu. Port 22 Connection Type SSH
This is error: "Network Error: Software caused connection abort"
In computer with windows, i can ping computer with ubuntu and in computer with ubuntu i can ping computer with windows.
I've been having problems with connecting to my router with my wireless card. Sometimes knetworkmanager attempts to the connect to my wireless via it's saved profile but it just stays on "Activating" for about 45 seconds then just stops. This only started happening a few days ago, so maybe the new kernel update has something to do with it?
I've tried to debugging the problem myself and have found if I reboot my router knetworkmanager can connect immediately to the wireless router, but also something interesting I found was is I assigned a IP Address and DNS manually on the saved profile it would connect with no problem (No reboot of router required), so it is indicating there is a problem with getting network settings. I've confirmed that the wireless card is not hard or soft blocked through rfkill.
I was using the box standard ath5k driver when this problem started happening and even went as far as a complete reinstall but ironically enough on first boot from a fresh install my wireless could not connect with the problem described above. I've since moved to the compat-wireless drivers but the problem remains.
I checked a couple of logs, one log file of significance was the wpa_suppliment log which was full of these messages: From all my debugging I can only assume that the kernel update is a possible cause for all of this as the problem occurring on first boot of a fresh install sounds like a general bug. I've got all of the requested information about my wireless card below, hope I've got everything:
I have a Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5721 network card on my server at work.Everything works fine for a few weeks, then randomly the network connection on the server will stop working. After it stops working, I will try to reconnect with the network manager, it shows a wired connection available, it shows the "connection in progress"animation, then the "connection disabled" icon.
I uninstalled the network manager and used manual configuration, but do you think the network manager was the issue? I can't have the server disconnecting randomly every few weeks with no way to know what the real problem is. Was there an issue with the network manager with 10.04?
