[Bug 1249979] Re: r8169 Ethernet driver doesn't work


I tested this with v3.13-rc3-trusty but r8169 worked just fine along
with DHCP and I was able to ping the outside world. So, it's some commit
inbetween 3.11.0-14-generic and 3.13-rc3-trusty that's caused the issue.

I don't think I'll have time to do a full bisect but I might be able to
try and narrow it down a little if you could provide some pointers.

  r8169 Ethernet driver doesn't work

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Following an upgrade from 13.04 to 13.10, gigabit card stopped working
  (100Mbps ethernet working fine on the motherboard still - KN9 Ultra).

  dmesg gives a load of warnings "r8169 0000:01:0a.0 eth0:
  rtl_phyar_cond == 0 (loop: 20, delay: 25)." and when rmmodding r8169
  and modprobing it, I get:

  [  125.198865] r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
  [  125.199151] r8169 0000:01:0a.0 (unregistered net_device): not PCI Express

  [  125.240366] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

  Plugging out and then in the cable makes no difference.
