SubjectNetcard: RTL8139B Problems (Hangs)


o Linux 2.2.16 (older driver) & Linux 2.4.0-test9 (8139too-fast)
o Two machines
o Netcards with RTL8139B chipsets
o Both hang after seemingly random delays / random amounts of net activity
o One seems to get a shitload of packet errors if left for a few days and
used again.
o Machines have ATI Rage 128 Chipsets for Graphics cards.


o If I use w3m all day and don't overdo net activity too much, machine
will stay stable, if I use netscape and look at high graphic (say high
bandwidth) sites, *bang* it reboots.

o If I transfer stuff directly across the network (at 100meg, HD) it
will crash almost instantaneously.

o I have tried all manner of tests to monitor and log net transfer to see
when the actual hang takes place, but haven't been able to "benchmark"

o Seems to be rougly after 6.6megs.. found this out by doing,

{ while true; sync; done } &
nc otherbox chargen > bigfile

After reboot, du -h bigfile,

6.6M bigfile (or something similar)

Heeelp :P
