Problem with 82573V Gb Network Adapter and e1000e driver for Linux

All:

I'm new to the forum & hoping this is the place for this...

 

I have a whitebox server with three network adapters, two gigabit adapters using the intel 82573V chips, and an intel pro/100 adapter based on the 82562 chip. These are embedded on an MSI motherboard. None are passing traffic.

 

I initially booted the box using a Knoppix 5.0.1 CD, and the NICs worked fine. When I installed CentOS 5.4, no joy. Interestingly, Intel recommends the e1000e driver (which I am using), but the Knoppix CD used the e1000 driver. Anyway, I pulled an updated e1000e driver from elrepo (a CentOS software repository), installed it, and verified that it was in use with 'ethtool --driver eth2', and the correct driver/version was displayed.

 

Symptoms are no traffic passes, rx/tx packet counts in ifconfig are both 0 (no errors, either). Routing table looks fine; three routes: one for 169.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x (my subnet), and one for 0.0.0.0, all destined for eth2, and all up. When I ping 127.0.0.1, and the local adapter address, I get good replies. As soon as I ping a remote host on my subnet, I get 'Destination host unreachable'.

 

Now, at one point, I actually got it to work. I applied a small patch from Intel to change a value in the EEPROM, rebooted as instructed, and the adapter came up and passed traffic. I did a 'yum update' to update the OS and installed packages, and shortly thereafter, everything stopped working again. It's still referencing the same e1000e driver, however.

 

Here's the output of lspci -vv:

With no luck from precompiled drivers, I pulled the source for the latest version: 1.1.2.1a-NAPI and installing everything I needed to compile. I compiled the driver, removed the old driver per the README with rmmod e1000e, then did a modprobe e1000e to insert the new module. response was:

 

# modprobe e1000e
PCI: Enabling device 0000:01-00.0 (0000 -> 0003)
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02-00.0 (0000 -> 0003)

which looks positive, at least. I did a 'service network restart' to unload/reload drivers and restart networking, but still no joy. Symptoms are identical.

 

At this point, I'm absolutely stuck. Any ideas (besides shorter posts )?

 

Thanks in advance.
