netdev watchdog mdk 9.0


I installed new mb (ms-6524) ever since unable to get to my gateway or any other machine on my network. I tried onboard 8139 with no luck.I reinsatlled mdk, tried putting my linksys nic100 in 3 different slots and still no success. I'm dual boot and everything ok in win. Here is what shows in log:
/etc/hotplug/net.agent: invoke ifup eth0
network: Bringing up interface eth0: succeeded
kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
kernel: eth0: Transmit timed out, status ec670015, CSR12 45e1d0cc, resetting...
How can I find out what this message is telling me?
Thanks,
Carlos

hey carlos, I got your email. We did not forget about you.


things are out of place here, lets see what we have

ok the commands

Code:
modprobe tulip

depmod -ae

ifconfig eth0
we must assume the the combination of /etc/modules.conf and running the commands have basically installed your network card.

Now where you rebooted, then ran ping, we see that your ip address is assigned. was this assigned manually by you in a script, by dhcp, or from the command line?

we will want to look at the output of this

Code:
route -n
to see if this is a routing problem

also you might want to check the netmask and ips on your network, make sure you are in the same network

now for the errors, It is starting to look like a kernel problem

here's the deal..

You have tried two different types of nics with the same result, ( I assume the resulting error messages are the same, let us know if they're different) .

so I think it's not the nic


Do you have another kernel you can boot? if not please try to download a different kernel version in the form of a mandrake rpm and try it.

David,
Thanks for the response. IP address was set during setup. Here are results of route and other commands. I don't have another kernel to use. Any idea what the status in my 1st msg is saying?
# route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0

0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network
NETWORKING=yes
FORWARD_IPV4=false
HOSTNAME=Micron
DOMAINNAME=localdomain
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1

# cat /etc/resolv.conf
# search localdomain
search localdomain
nameserver 4.2.2.1
nameserver 4.2.2.2
# domain 192.168.1.1
# ppp temp entry

Thanks again have a nice holiday,
Carlos

I think the message is a kernel error


I know that card should work
