    SubjectAbout the fix "e1000e: workaround for packet drop on 82579 at 100Mbps (commit 0ed013e28fe853244f4972cf18d8e2bd62eeb8fc)"

    I'm now running Linux 3.0.8 and I still see this issue:

    $ ifconfig eth0

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr f4:6d:04:39:XX:XX
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    RX packets:123911 errors:0 dropped:386 overruns:0 frame:0

    I'm not absolutely certain about the quality of equipment I'm connected to - so I'd like to know how can I
    remove it out of equation.

    My Internet connection seemingly works this way:

    My_PC -> 16-port unmanageable Ethernet switch -> Cisco Ethernet switch -> Cisco PPPoE concentrator (the
    first device I can ping via PPPoE connection)

    Best wishes,
