    Default IC Plus Corp IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet and OpenSuSE (x86, x86_64)

    I have an odd problem with my NIC; on both x86 and x86_64 OpenSuSE 11.3 I lose network connectivity with my gateway router, if heavy downloading is evolved (e.g. downloading a large file over HTTP or any activity - large or small - on bittorrent). I have no limitations on my ISP side and the router is working fine. I even upgraded to the latest firmware from my wireless router's vendor and installed third party firmware, but the problem remains. While I lose connectivity on the wired network segment (my PC is directly connected to the router), the wireless segment continues to operate. What's even more odd, I have no networking issues while watching streaming media - normal or higher quality.

    Information about my network card:

    06:01.0 Ethernet controller: Sundance Technology Inc / IC Plus Corp IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet (rev 41)

    1: None 00.0: 10701 Ethernet
    [Created at net.124]
    Unique ID: usDW.ndpeucax6V1
    Parent ID: rBUF.H29BqU8ALB5
    SysFS ID: /class/net/eth0
    SysFS Device Link: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:06:01.0
    Hardware Class: network interface
    Model: "Ethernet network interface"
    Driver: "Sundance Technology IPG Triple-Speed Ethernet"
    Driver Modules: "ipg"
    Device File: eth0
    HW Address:
    Link detected: yes
    Config Status: cfg=new, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown
    Attached to: #31 (Ethernet controller)

    Please assist in resolving this issue.

    Thanks.

    Does '/sbin/lspci -nn' show the PCI ID as 0x13f0, 0x1021? If so, there is a
    kernel fix removing this ID from ipg and letting dl2k drive the device. To test
    this fix, do the following:

    Code:
    sudo /sbin/modprobe -rv ipg
    sudo /sbin/modprobe -v dl2k
    If that helps things, then blacklist ipg in /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf.

    If your device is not the 13f0:1021, then you should post the symptoms on the
    Linux Kernel Mailing List (linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org) or on the kernel
    bugzilla (bugzilla.kernel.org). I'm quite certain this is an upstream problem.
    Be sure to list your kernel version as shown by 'uname -r'.

    Thanks allot lwfinger,

    PCI ID is 13f0:1023, so I assume there is no quick fix.

    06:01.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Sundance Technology Inc / IC Plus Corp IP1000 Family Gigabit Ethernet [13f0:1023] (rev 41)

    I did try switching to dl2k, but lost connectivity and rolled back.

    The kernel is: 2.6.34.7-0.7-desktop

    I will post my issue on kernel bugzilla.

    Thanks again.

    I filed a report at Kernel Bug Tracker:

    https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33332

    Should I do the same at Novell's Bugzilla, or is it to much hasle?

    As most openSUSE users would not think to look at the kernel bugzilla, I think
    an abbreviated report at the Novell one is warranted. Give it a good,
    descriptive one, and reference the kernel report.
