laptop network card


im trying to setup my laptop network card.
i set ip + netmask and when i ping my gateway (one switch away) it responds "destination host unreachable" and after a while (3-4secs) i get raw on the console 2 repeated lines "NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth1: transmit timedout" and 0000:00:10:0: tulip_stop_rxtx() failed

os: debian etch
kernel: 2.6.18-4-686
network if: Accton Technology Corporation EN-1616

i tried booting with noacpi but it still happens.

that generally happens (timed out) with faulty cabling, switch or socket.

since i can see eth1 may the incorrect Ethernet device is being used.

usually
Eth0 Cat5
Eth1 Wireless

try
ping -i eth0 (ipaddress)

thanks for the reply,
eth1 is the cat5 interface i also use mii-tool eth1 wich reports "negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok".
i tried to switch the cable to my other pc where it works fine.
i tried the command you suggested:
no replies
the "destination host unreachable" stopped showing
i keep getting "ETDEV WATCHDOG: eth1: transmit timedout" and "0000:00:10:0: tulip_stop_rxtx() failed" messages from the kernel.

so im guessing the card is not working correctly with the tulip driver :/

i also updated to 2.6.20 kernel but the problem still occurs.

is there any driver similar to tulip with wich i can replace it ?

ps. the network interface used to work smoothly about 3 years ago when i was checked out a woody version (i can't remember which was the kernel version) would it be possible to use old tulip module on 2.6.20 kernel or its going to break the kernel ?

try changing the data rate to

10 half duplex
10 full duplex
or
100 half duplex

unfortunately i dont know how to do that in debian.

Tried them all already
the command is:

mii-tool -F <type> ethX

where type could be (according to "mii-tool --help"): 100baseT4, 100baseTx-FD, 100baseTx-HD, 10baseT-FD, 10baseT-HD

as i understand you think its a physical connection problem rather than driver/kernel one, unfortunately all the physical parts where checked over and over, cable is working 100%, network card is working, switch is working, switch port is working, the gateway network is working.

is there any place to find if there are available patches for the tulip driver ?
