Fedora 10 and 1000 Mbps Marvell Ethernet Controller
With the upgrade to Fedora 10 I decided that it was also time to upgrade some network equipment. So we replaced one of our 10/100 Ethernet switch's with a new 100/1000 switch.
All well everything works, except the one computer which is running Fedora 10. As soon as I plug it into the 1000mb Switch the whole computer hangs... If I plug the cable into any 10/100mb switch it works fine.
The computer is build with a Asus P4S800D-E Delux motherboard, and this motherboard has a Marvell 1000 Mbps Ethernet controller. I can find enough people on the Internet that have problems with Asus motherboard equipped with a Marvell 1000 Mbps Ethernet controller, the only problem is that as I see enough problems I cannot find the solution to fix the problem.
The 1000 Mbps Ethernet Switch is a D-Link DGS-1005D, but I not belief that the D-Link switch is the problem, as other people have similar problems with other 1000 Mbps equipment.
I currently run kernel 126.96.36.199-159.fc10.i686, the previous kernel has the same problem....
Does anybody knows a solution....????
