Problems with Intel Gigabit Adapter/e1000e Driver


All:
I have a whitebox server with three network adapters, two gigabit adapters using the intel 82573V chips, and an intel pro/100 adapter based on the 82562 chip. These are embedded on an MSI motherboard. None are passing traffic.

I initially booted the box using a Knoppix 5.0.1 CD, and the NICs worked fine. When I installed CentOS 5.4, no joy. Interestingly, Intel recommends the e1000e driver (which I am using), but the Knoppix CD used the e1000 driver. Anyway, I pulled an updated e1000e driver from elrepo, installed it, and verified that it was in use with 'ethtool --driver eth2', and the correct driver/version was displayed.

Symptoms are no traffic passes, rx/tx packet counts in ifconfig are both 0 (no errors, either). Routing table looks fine; three routes: one for 169.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x (my subnet), and one for 0.0.0.0, all destined for eth2, and all up. When I ping 127.0.0.1, and the local adapter address, I get good replies. As soon as I ping a remote host on my subnet, I get 'Destination host unreachable'.

Now, at one point, I actually got it to work. I applied a small patch from Intel to change a value in the EEPROM, rebooted as instructed, and the adapter came up and passed traffic. I did a 'yum update' to update my packages, and shortly thereafter, everything stopped working again. It's still referencing the same e1000e driver, however.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
RJL

Maybe you should be using the e1000 driver. But why not post either the exact mobo you are using or the output of 'lspci -vv'.

I pulled the e1000 driver off of elrepo, also - same symptoms. I figured Knoppix must be doing something with a config or a param somewhere that is not getting done in the CentOS installation...

Anyway, here's a ton of output. First, lspci -vv:

I know with the e1000e driver, you should try the latest version:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...=2198&lang=eng

With my mobo, the one included in the kernel did not work at all, I had to compile one myself. Later version of the kernel had a version that worked ok, but it depends on your kernel version. Just try compiling it.

I am using the latest version: 1.1.2.1a-NAPI.

I ended up pulling the source, and installing everything I needed to compile. I compiled the driver, removed the old driver per the README with rmmod e1000e, then did a modprobe e1000e to insert the new module. response was:

Code:
# modprobe e1000e
PCI: Enabling device 0000:01-00.0 (0000 -> 0003)
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02-00.0 (0000 -> 0003)
Then did a 'service network restart' to reload the configs. Results are identical to those above. Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Only suggestions left:

Does the knoppix CD still work ok ?

If not, it might be some hardware issue, maybe try asking intel ?

I believe I found the problem (or actually two problems). First, a little confusion about which ethernet port is which... Turns out, MSI (mb manufacturer) lines them up on the front panel from left to right as eth1-eth2-eth0.

Anyway - that certainly introduced some confusion in the troubleshooting, but the culprit was NetworkManager. I stumbled across it by accident when I got the traffic to pass again, then disabled it as a service, and all of the symptoms returned. After a bit of digging, I did the following to fix:

1. yum remove NetworkManager
2. edit /etc/resolv.conf to remove the comments NetworkManager put in there, and add back in the 'search domain.com' and 'nameserver w.x.y.z' statements.
3. reboot server, and all was well again, with no NetworkManager.

Thanks for all of the help - hope this helps someone else.
