eth0: Transmit timed out


im trying to install gentoo

i can boot into the livecd (1.4) fine and ifconfig shows my eth0

i can links www.yahoo.com and it shows me websites right?

but when i am using the ethernet, i get, every 10 seconds or every 5 seconds, i get this message:

eth0: Transmit timed out, status e4660000, CSR12 41e1d0cc, resetting...

I think the numbers (status/CSR12, etc) are the same all the time (though not sure..)

If i am not using the internet connection, i do not get this error

I can get data to/fro inet but i also get these errors.... And I think these errors are hindering data transfer to/fro inet because its like i get "freeze" in the webpage loading, or whatever (i have not loadedany X yet, so im using links...)

Any clue? Any help woul dbe appreciated... Thanks

(Ive looked in other threads, and none have shown the solution)

What network card do you have? I have seen some strange problems like that with some cheap d-link cards.

its a sohoware auto 10/100 pci nic SFA110A and a dlink di-604 router

it works in windows without a problem

maybe its something with the settings in the kernel module? i dont know... maybei ts somehow overflowing because the wrong speed is selected?

can somebody give me ideas what i could do to alleviate this?

someone told me to unplug the ethernet cable and plug in the jacks the other way around, ill try that i havent tried it yet, but maybe something else i can do? cause i dont think that will help (it might...)

ifdown:in and ifup:in the interface might bring it back to life.. for a while.

If you weren't a gentoo user, I would recommend trying a newer (2.4.23) kernel (Most gentoo guys allready use the newest version available).
