Network, Sound trouble with my motherboard ASUS H87I-PLUS ??


Hi,

I suspect that I have an hardware issue with my new ASUS H87I-PLUS, Socket-1150 motherboard. I am currently running Slackware 14.1 32-bit on it, and the symptoms are:

1) My USB Network adapter drops connection randomly, when it does I cannot reactivate it
in any way with wpa_supplicant or even scan with iwlist. But when I physicly detach it
and reattach it to the USB connector it flashes back to life.
PS! This does not happen when I use the adapter on a different machine running the same OS.

2) My analogue sound output randomly loses connection, restarting alsa/alsa-oss/pulseaudio
does nothing to revive it, but a reboot does bring it back to life.

I am quite lost here, both as to what actually is the underlying problem, how to find that out and what to do with it... Can anyone give me some tips on how to figure out if this truly is a hardware issue, kernel issue, or something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

random dropouts are hard to troubleshoot.
could be hardware-related or not.
could even be an unrelated piece of software causing it.

you have to supply some logs - /var/log/Xorg.0.log is always a good start.
what kind of environment are you running? anything out of the ordinary?
when did this start? did you "do something"(tm) just before that?

Thanks for answering! Ironically enough these problems have thus far been stable, but when the stuff eventually crashes I will paste the Xorg.0.log output. My environment is standard Slackware 14.1 32-bit. I have alternated between KDE, ratpoison and blackbox (and just plain tty), sometimes running multiple desktops at once. It started since I first booted my new machines some days ago, and has persisted since (but at very random intervals). As far as I know I did not do anything to trigger this, network/audio just drops out unexpectedly sometimes when idle sometimes when its busy..

The network did eventualy go down. The Xorg.0.log did not show anything relevant, but I did get this:

So far the sound has not dropped out, but I will post relevant log entries if/when it does. Hope this might help..
