Instructions on updating ethtool can be found in the section Additional Configurations later in this document. This default mode is suitable for most applications. You can enable it on an em interface using ifconfig 8. For the build to work properly, the currently running kernel MUST match the version and configuration of the installed kernel sources. It only needs to be set for Jumbo Frames. The driver utilizes the ethtool interface for driver configuration and diagnostics, as well as displaying statistical information.

I’ve rebooted several times now and it seems like everything is all working. If you are required to use a 2.

Linux* Base Drivers for IntelĀ® Ethernet Network Connection

Use the mediaopt option to select full-duplex mode. This example applies to the Red Hat distributions; other distributions may store this setting in a different location. Do not use MSI-X with the 2. As an example, if you install the e driver for two Gigabit adapters eth0 and eth1 and set the 82541hi and duplex to 10full and half, oinux the following to modules. Node 0-n 0 – n: Other distributions may store this setting in a different location.


LLISize causes an immediate interrupt if the board receives a packet smaller than the specified size. This value coincides with the maximum Jumbo Frames size of The configuration change can be made permanent by adding the line: LLI parameters are not enabled when Legacy interrupts are used. For other Linux distributions, download and install ethtool from the following website: You don’t happen to have another network controller of the same kind in your machine, do you?

Default 1 dis- abled. When booting, CentOS whines about it not being present, delaying initialization.

There are three classes defined: Setting InterruptThrottleRate to a value greater or equal to will program the adapter to send out a maximum of that many interrupts per second, even if more packets have come in. It just seems after every reboot that it doesn’t want to come up automatically. If mediaopt is not specified, the driver defaults to half-duplex.

This value delays the generation of receive interrupts in units of 1. Board index All times are UTC. This default mode is suitable for most applications. Configuring a network driver to load properly when the system is started is distribution dependent. This parameter is supported only onand later adapters.

The default behaviour of the driver previously assumed a static InterruptThrottleRate value of liinux, providing a good fallback value for all traffic types, but lacking in small packet performance and latency.

8254gi Furthermore it supports TCP segmentation offload TSO on all adapters but those based on theand controller chips. The default value for each parameter is generally the recommended setting, unless otherwise noted. After installing the driver, if your Intel Ethernet Network Connection is not working, verify that you have installed the correct driver.

If the traffic is mostly transmit or mostly receive, the interrupt rate could be as high as If you encounter the problem in an adapter, and the chipset is an based one, you can verify that your adapter needs the fix by using ethtool: To resolve this issue build the driver step intek above using the command:.

This may increase network latency but also increases the chances that the system will enter a lower power state.

I removed it because it shouldn’t have been there. Build error with Asianux 3.
