SubjectRe: e1000e 2.6.30.1 massive packet loss
From
> What do you call 20-50% packet loss ?

sorry that's just the approximate average loss mtr was reporting. I
realize it's not the most accurate test, but I have no problems before
changing to .1 or after downgrading from it.

mtr uses all icmp, but considering web browsing and I'm sure even dns
was affected I'd say all of it. I haven't done further investigation.
it was the origin and the losses occured between my desktop
machine(2.6.31.x) and my linksys wrt54gl(on openwrt) router. Since I
know the cable is good, and the losses haven't happened before or
since, and I even tried rebooting the router, I'm fairly confident
that it's a result of changes between the 2 kernel versions.

yes.

these are from 2.6.30 I'll send .1 in a bit.
