View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ttulip_stop_rxtx - No Network Connection

December 27th, 2008, 11:41 PM
Im running Linux 8.10 -- Intrepid Ibex
Kernel -- 2.6.27-7-generic

Network issue -- NO CONNECTION at all - The computer is running a Windows partition - and that has a connection all day long - so it's not a hardware / cabling issue ---

I've tried DHCP and Static IP -- I've tried
connecting directly to the DSL Modem and going through my Linksys router - I've tried adding modules and adjusting the BIOS -- I've shut everything down and restarted it -- a real problem solving PARTY

Here is what I know:

I have two NIC's, eth0 and eth1 (eth1 is BUSTED, so it can't be used)

The drivers (lsmod):

tulip (eth0)
8139too, 8139cp (eth1)

dmesg |grep tulip returns:

tulip_stop_rxtx() failed (CSR5 ....)

lspci returns:

Ethernet controller: ADMtek NC100 Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11) -- (this is eth0)

Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
NOTE: REALtek is eth1 --> NOT being used

I've seen some threads similar to this -- Most claim that the newer Kernels fix the issue -- (note: a 6.x version of Ubuntu worked fine on the same computer) ---

Anyone have an idea why this is busted?

Thanks for any help -
