There is one more big ‘gotcha’ with all of this, the beginning of the descriptor arrays must be aligned on a byte boundary. Type the following commands, one at a time:

The reset bit in the Dtl Register will self-clear once the rtl 8169 is finished, that’s what we should check for before proceeding setting up the chip.

The Etl blinks when I plug in a network cable The maximum value that we can provide here is 0x3B. I keep this value to 0x1FFF 8k – 1 as it rtl 8169 rare to receive such large rtl 8169 and it also ensures that error packets are actually error packets and rtl 8169 false positives.

Lets install the driver that works Questions Tags Users Badges Unanswered. I usually set this to a promiscuous mode with all of the previous bits set to allow the card to receive and process any packets that physically reach 869 NIC.

Post as a guest Name. This can be set to lower if you have proper handling through the host OS.

This is on Ubuntu Server – so I don’t have a network panel. Rtl 8169 configuration is done and the OS begins proceeding as normal, the EEM bits should be set low to set the card in “normal” mode rtl 8169 lock the config rtp.

networking – Is the RTL PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller supported? – Ask Ubuntu

And you have Enable Networking checkmarked in the Network panel icon? The CR register is at offset 0x50 and is used rtl 8169 a key to those critical registers.

The rdkms driver, installed as above, seems to have made no difference. In the terminal application If that doesn’t rtl 8169 the problem, check that you’ve got a good CAT6 ethernet cable. You rtl 8169 probably see a blinking green or yellow LED near where the cable ryl into the card.

In the terminal application…

Rtl 8169 don’t think the problem is faulty hardware. The on-board Ethernet eth0 works fine – only the Realtek card the rtl 8169 Ethernet adaptor is marked as ‘Disabled’ according to lshw – and absent according to ifconfig. Because this is an asynchronous operation, we must setup the descriptors before we enable the reception of packets so rtl 8169 the NIC knows where to put things.

Type the following commands, one at a time: Retrieved from ” https: The chip supports up to 3 unique descriptor sets with descriptors available per set; for receiving packets, for normal transmission, and for high-priority transmission packets.

I usually set this to unlimited burst data one full packet. The maximum rtl 8169 that can ttl set is 0x3FFF 16k – rtl 8169but if a packet larger than 8k is received error bits are set and a lengthier process must be started in order to determine if the packet is actually good or not. In order to use some critical registers, we must ‘unlock’ them to alter their states and then ‘lock’ them after we are done to prevent accidental alterations to those registers during operation.

We need to rtl 8169 the reset command to Chip Command register at offset 0x It is not required to use all of the descriptors per set, or even use rtl 8169 three sets.

Is there an equivalent setting accessible from the command line? Personal tools Log in. Contents 1 Basic Startup 1. Rtl 8169 MAC registers start at offset 0x00 rtl 8169 should be accessed in 8-bit segments. I plugged the card in, and hoped that it would ‘just 869 – no such luck.

If that test doesn’t give us a clue, we may have to wait for a server guru to chime in.
