skge: eth0: Link is up... Link is down... Link is up....
 
Hi, suddenly when boot the box, Im getting these console messages at my clean net-installed 40r0 debian...
I just installed webmin, midnight-commander and saidar using: "apt-get install"

Code:

  skge: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex, flow control tx and rx
  skge: eth0: Link is down.
  skge: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex, flow control tx and rx
  skge: eth0: Link is down.
  skge: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex, flow control tx and rx
  skge: eth0: Link is down.
  skge: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex, flow control tx and rx
  skge: eth0: Link is down.
  skge: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex, flow control tx and rx

And once I logon as root, the problem stops and It can work 'normally' whats wrong with this kernel module? how can I troubleshoot or fix this issue?
I uploaded the full dmesg output here: http://site.crafta.com/demsg.txt

thanks in advance.

You might want to get a newer kernel installed a lot of them built in network cards have problems with older versions that may have been fixed in the later versions of the kernel, looks like you can get a 2.6.21 at http://www.backports.org.

It is not a built-in NIC, box has one, but Im using a new PCI one...
I see, so you recommend me to upgrade the kernel to newest?

Newer kernel is usually better support/bug fixes so yes it is up to you of course it is your machine after all. I see I thought you had one of those motherboards with the dual nic onboard using the via-rhine and skge for the modules.

I had a problem like that, but it turned out to be a flakey port on my router rather than anything wrong with the computer/NIC.

Good point might be worth checking the cable as well too.
