Is someone aware of the problems the 8139too driver has with heavy loaded
networks? I have a rtl8139 working in a server on a 10baseT network with a
current collision rate of over 20%! the 8139too driver gives me the
following output when having some traffic:
NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
eth0: Tx queue start entry 68810 dirty entry 68806.
eth0: Tx descriptor 0 is 00002000.
eth0: Tx descriptor 1 is 00002000.
eth0: Tx descriptor 2 is 00002000. (queue head)
eth0: Tx descriptor 3 is 00002000.
eth0: media is unconnected, link down, or incompatible connection
this is very annoying since the card is down for sometime, no packets are
Does someone have a solution to this problem or must I buy another
