    why Intel 82571 GE Controller does not transmit a packet?

    lipeng

      Hi, I have a problem

       

       

       

      I have 82571 controller in my hardware firewall, the software is linux 2.6.23

       

        sometime the 82571 can not transmit a packet, it's transmit fifo register shows me there are packets in it.

       

      I check the phy status and mac status registers, both of them are right.

       

      I even compare all the register with those in the working 82571, I can not find an important difference.

       

      This is not an inevitable problem and I can not find a condition that can cause this problem

       

      I don't know what should I do? please help me,  thanks
