    Intel 82571EB Dual Server Network card not detected sometimes

    dvladek

      Dear,

       

      I'm using this card over a Ubuntu with a 2.6.31.12 kernel (on a ASUS P7P55D-E motherboard) But, if i init the PC from poweroff situation, the network card is not detected; but if I use a reboot command, then the network card is detected.

       

      In both cases, my linux distribution don't load the e1000e Intel driver (as if i'm from poweroff situation or reboot) However, the ethtool information shows a e1000e driver in use when the card is detected. If not, the network card controller not appear at hardware lscpi command.

       

      Below, I copy different information command responses when the card is detected. If not, the information is empty:
