rtl8169 gigabit ethernet NIC problem on ipcop


i have been having troubles forever on this one. i am try to get the internet to route over the "blue" and "green" interfaces. but for some reason every time i try to ping any interface that is using an rtl8169 card after ~6 pings the interface will totally lock up, i can bring the interface down and up, and then i can ping it again for 6 times, and it will lock up again. i have tried 3 different rtl8169 cards that i have, all of which work on other machines, and every single one does the same thing.

i cant figure this one out, anyone have any ideas?

nv it seems that the rtl 8169 drivers for ipcop 1.4.1 are not working.

i answered my own question.

Additional to this, Realtek cards aren't that great, and they're not something I'd stick on a gateway.
Having said that, I the 8139 on my desktop, and it's quite happy but it doesn't get loaded with much.

From the IPCop user and development lists, about the 8169:

Try something more expensive than an 8169

The HCL is at http://www.ipcop.org/cgi-bin/twiki/v...op/IPCopHCLv01
It's probably worth subscribing to the user list to see if someone can answer your questions (assuming you've done a bit of research first).

well i cant entirely trust the HCL since the 8169 is on there.

i was thinking to go with a Intel Pro/1000 MT Desktop Network Adapter

i have looked into it and seems good, but i want confirmation from someone who is currently using it on ipcop.

The user list would be the best place to ask.
