The Eclectic One
Default Bug#508120: linux-source-2.6.26: RTL8139 ethernet (8139too driver) doesn't work in 10Mb/s half duplex

Package: linux-source-2.6.26
Version: 2.6.26-10
Severity: important

Hardware involved:

RealTek RTL8139D ethernet card (10/100Mb/s). Markings on the chip:
63122S1 L622E TAIWAN.
Linksys "8-port Workgroup hub"
Netgear "router/gateway RP-614"

Debugging info:

When installed, the RTL8139D card is recognized by the system and the
8139too driver is loaded (as well as the 8139cp).

When connected to the Linksys hub, ifconfig says the node is 10Mb/s,
half duplex. Ping makes all the lights blink (at the network card,
at the hub) both from the machine in question and from other machines
connected to the hub, yet ping fails with "Destination Host Unreachable"
in both directions. No other application works either, of course.

The exact same network configuration was tried with another card, an
old SMC ISA card and worked fine with the Linksys hub.

The linksys hub was then replaced with the Netgear router. The link
was then set up (automatically) at 100Mb/s full duplex and everything
is working fine. While it is possible that the card itself doesn't
work at 10Mb/s Half duplex (it's a new card, purchased days ago),
it's much more likely that packets are getting lost or stuck in the driver.
