I'm seeing the following error (followed by some kind of dump info) in syslog, sometimes dozens of times per day:
Jul 14 23:01:06 samba kernel: eth0: Transmit error, Tx status register 82.
Jul 14 23:01:06 samba kernel: Probably a duplex mismatch. See Documentation/net
So I checked vortext.txt and it says of the error:
"This is a common error which is almost always caused by another host on the same network being in full-duplex mode, while this host is in half-duplex mode. You need to find that other host and make it run in half-duplex mode or fix this host to run in full-duplex mode.
As a last resort, you can force the 3c59x driver into full-duplex mode with
options 3c59x full_duplex=1
but this has to be viewed as a workaround for broken network gear and should only really be used for equipment which cannot autonegotiate."
How would I determine which Windows machine (there are only 8) or hub is responsible for this? slight problem is I'm 100 miles away, so anything I can do remotely would be much preferred (I have full remote access to everything).
