    Issue Intel DB65AL Network controller 82579V drops network link at random

    syndev

      Hi All,

       

      Using this intel board with linux OS (ClearOS) and have some problems with the network controller.

      I'm using the latest BIOS, posted recently and the latest linux driver for this NIC.

       

      The problem I'm struggling with; The network communication between two systems is working however the network (physical) link is dropping randomly causing timeout etc.

       

      In order to eliminate other systems I just took a switch and connected only the intel NIC, no other systems! Still net link is up and down randomly. For some time the link maybe more stable but withn 5 minutes it will drop once at least.

       

      I really want this NIC working properly so any help solving this is highly appreciated.

       

      Regards,

      Frank
