Netgate / Alix 2D3 LAN Port Issues



  • I am currently running an Alix 2d3 from Netgate 1.2.3-RELEASE  with the LAN and WAN ports currently in use.

    The LAN port seems to keep dropping off as follows:

    Jan 20 21:58:27 kernel: vr0: link state changed to DOWN
    Jan 20 22:01:06 kernel: vr0: link state changed to UP

    Jan 20 22:01:18 kernel: vr0: link state changed to DOWN
    Jan 20 22:01:20 kernel: vr0: link state changed to UP

    etc… throughout the day -- which in turn kicks people off the net

    do you guys think this is a defective unit from a hardware perspective /is there something in the software i should check ?

    thanks,

  • Change the cable first and the switch port second if the cable doesn't help.  If that still doesn't fix it then you probably have a bad system.



  • ok – i will check that and report back

    thanks,
