2 link states coalesced



  • Hello everyone,

    I have a 3 interface daughter board card that uses the RTL8110S chipset. The chipset is listed on the HCL here http://www.pfsense.com/index.php?id=37
    The issue is that I am getting a "no carrier" message on some interfaces when they are indeed plugged in. I have tried PFsense Beta4, latest stable (1.0.1) and the latest 1.2 beta. The 1.2 beta does not show these messages, but experiences the same problem.

    When booting, and when connected to the console, I get these messages.

    I have done some searching and this seems to be a error specific to FreeBSD and may be driver related.

    I have tried to manually assign IRQ's in the possibility that this was resource realted, but the result was the same…

    ANY help is appriciated!!

    Thanks



  • I aslo want to add that the issue is inconsistent. all 3 interfaces may work for a 24 hour period, and then drop off. A more consistent situation is that when all are up, I will release one interface, when it renews it's address, it will show the no carrier message, then bounce back and forth from "up", to "no carrier".

    Thanks
