Broadcom NetXtreme Ethernet Controller Driver 3.122g for Linux (tg3)

I guess this commit fixes the issue. Ubuntu Forums Code of Conduct. Lights on the back of the NIC are orange indicative of tv3 physical link, but I am able to get a link and IP when booting into Windows from the same laptop. Here is a dmesg snippet, maybe it helps.

Fix Central

The bandwidth use doesn’t seem to be broaccom issue anymore, but now it disconnects with heavy data transfer to USB. This way, a boot may work sometimes, maybe due to default values not being set by the kernel module tg3 and being set by pxe code, if it executed before Linux is loaded. Broadcom Tigon3 ethernet driver author: This software is not supported and is provided “AS IS.


My hypothesis is that pxe setups the nic in a way that is not the default, by changing one or more of the config bits for some register. I just compiled linux-stable 4.

Not even a single crash was observed. Anyway, I want to report advances in this problem. Perhaps related to the AMD platform I can run tests or gather more data, if it helps. Near the end of the installation, you will be prompted to re-insert the driver disk otherwise known as a XenServer supplemental netxtrems so that the driver can be installed onto disk.

Not able to see PCI NICs in show int

broadxom Actually it looked worse, because the machine crashed faster maybe was just an impression. To avoid the existing driver being loaded, use the following procedure.

Netboot works until the tg3 module takes ower.

I tested the issue with kernel 2. See full activity log.

Great find Lauri, and thank you again! I also checked that this patch is not yet merged into the latest vanilla stable kernel, version 4. The installer will boradcom to attempt to load the driver. Could you please report this problem to the appropriate mailing list netdev by following the instructions verbatim at https: Link is up at Mbps, full duplex tg3 Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as ntextreme.


I cannot judge yet. Tried booting with irqpoll, the connection still drops but module can be reloaded and mouse isn’t jerky. If both ends are gigabit, it works much more reliably.

I’ve spent the last two days reading posts to the forums and have not been able to identify any solutions that work in my case and would be very appreciative of any help or suggestions from the forum.

I tried this with 3. This bug affects 15 people.
