Load the module using either the insmod or modprobe command: If this occurs, the driver will report a “TX Timeout” and reset the adapter, after which the transmit flow will restart, though data may have stalled for as much as 10 seconds before it resumes. Dynamic interrupt throttling is only applicable to adapters operating in MSI or Legacy interrupt mode, using a single receive queue. This is caused by the way the Linux kernel reports this stressed condition. The driver can limit the amount of interrupts per second that the adapter will generate for incoming packets. It looks like you’re trying to install the ethernet drivers, not the wireless drivers, can you confirm which set you are trying to install?

Local Loopback inet addr: Receive Absolute Interrupt Delay array of int parm: If the bytes per second rate is approximately equal, the interrupt rate will drop as low as interrupts per second. After installing the driver, if your Intel Ethernet Network Connection is not working, verify that you have installed the correct driver. This option can be overridden to 1 if there are not sufficient interrupts available.

Restarting the system appears to be the only remedy. MSI-X is required for multiple queue support, and some kernels and combinations of kernel. Using kernel versions earlier than 3.


On certain non-Intel architectures, it has been observed that intense TX traffic bursts of short packets may result in an improper descriptor writeback. In this mode, which operates the same as mode 3, the InterruptThrottleRate will be increased stepwise to for traffic in class nwtwork latency”.

MSI-X support is required for Multiqueue. Same hardware perfectly works under windows7.

In order to limit the CPU utilization without impacting the overall throughput, we recommend that you load the driver as follows: Same symptoms after many inteld. Then select the name of the specified base driver: The script can be downloaded at http: This networj allows for the ability of IEEE Jumbo Frames support is enabled by changing the MTU to a value larger than the default of For questions related to hardware requirements, refer to the documentation supplied with your Intel Gigabit adapter.

SE Jun 19 ’12 at 2: A descriptor describes a data buffer and attributes related to the data buffer. Whenever the kernel version is upgraded you will need rebuild this driver.

This is a 3rd party limitation. Allows changing the interrupt mode at module load time, without requiring a recompile.

This driver supports multiqueue in kernel versions 2. On the same pc, windows 7 works perfectly, so I guess that it’s a driver issue. EEE support requires autonegotiation.

Turning on DMA Coalescing may save energy with kernel 2. There are three classes defined: First identify your adapter.

Three keywords are used to control the speed and duplex configuration. Thought it might be a driver issue.

To resolve this issue build the driver step 4 above using the command:. The board advertises all supported speed and duplex combinations, and it links at the highest common speed and duplex mode IF the link partner is set to auto-negotiate.
