[Bug 1547838] Re: ADMtek ADM8511 "Pegasus II" USB Ethernet causes oops


I had to jump through some hoops to update the BIOS (since the updater
was a Windows binary and this machine does not have Windows on it). But
I finally sorted something out.

dmidecode output:
68PDV Ver. F.20

The adapter seems to be stable now. I brought it up, did some pings,
even some file transfers. I have not seen even a hint of a problem yet.

The machine at work this adapter was causing problems with was also a HP
so maybe it too needed a BIOS update.

I am surprised, but thankful that it's working now.

  ADMtek ADM8511 "Pegasus II" USB Ethernet causes oops

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is a rather old USB ethernet adapter. It worked fine for me with
  older distributions (including Ubuntu 10.04). I noticed it causing
  problems after upgrading to 14.04 and stopped using it as a result
  (since I needed reliable USB ethernet for work). I was also not
  completely sure if it was this device causing the issue or interplay
  between this device and a number of other networking USB devices that
  were used at work.

  I'd like to use this ethernet adapter at home but the machine is
  running Ubuntu 14.04 and the issue persists.

  I have collected some information that might help. I'm happy to try
  more things to collect information if that will help.

  I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 server 64-bit. I just rebooted so I'm running
  the latest updates.

  I was told to run ubuntu-bug linux but I'm not sure how much useful
  stuff is included in that. I'm including the kernel log which has some
  bad stuff happening in it. Not sure if it got the system-freezing oops
  or just the errors leading up to that.

  It feels like a bug in the driver that corrupts memory because I see
  issues with network-related things (eg. a ping crashed, but the next
  ping didn't), leading to a full-system freeze.

  This machine has been happily running Ubuntu for a looong time (though
  it was only recently upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04, previously it had been
  running 10.04). I have not had stability issues with the machine but
  plugging in the USB Ethernet reliably makes it freeze within minutes.
  The symptoms also match what I saw on my machine at work.
