[realtek] cause of errors
Fri Nov 9 18:17:01 2001
I have 2 realtek NICs on my firewall and I noted that using them at 100
MBits Full Duplex a lot of "errors" appears in ifconfig output when
transfering large files, like 500 errors after transfering 20 MB of data. I
tested the firewall on another network and the errors do not disappear. On
low traffic (like ping packets) errors are not present. With a 10 Mbits or
100 Mbit half duplex it works ok on any network.
I would like to know, what could be the cause of geting so much errors with
full duplex at 100 Mbits and what could be wrong? Is it the cable or the
network card or the driver ?
I use rtl8139too driver with 2.4.7
Thanks in advance
