    Default Networking stops after upgrade

    Hi,

    I have Intel DP35DP motherboard (with the latest BIOS, May 21, 2008).
    This motherboard has Intel 82566DC-2 10/100/1000 network controller
    (Rev 02, PCI ID: 8085:294c). CPU: Intel E8400 (3.0 GHz, C2D).

    I have installed SuSE 11.0 (EM64T) on this system and network worked well.
    After upgrading kernel up to '2.6.25.9-0.2-default' level, network
    stopped to work, it produces the following messages in 'dmesg':

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    0000:00:19.0: eth1: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any network command complains on 'no route to host'.

    I downloaded and recompiler the latest Intel driver (e1000e-0.4.1.7.tar.gz),
    installation went smoothly, but ... with the same result -- network doesn't
    work!

    Can somebody help with resolving this really annoying problem? It is
    especially unfortunate story, because very many of new Intel motherboards
    have the same network adapter ... &#37;-((

    Thank you in advance.

    Sincerely yours,
    Volodymyr

    I just bought Intel Pro/1000 pci-e 1x network card. It has the same problem.
    I haven't tied new driver yet.
    But that's pretty common chip nowdays it should run out of the box
