Default vr0: rx packet lost

Hi all,

On an old machine I used as a workstation for years with Gentoo, I decided to turn it into a FreeBSD server for testing purposes.

The problem is that the integraded VIA Rhine seems to have problems. Transfering data to it is really slow, as I would be in a 10Mb network, but it is 100Mb.
I it interesting that inserting a Realtek nic (rl) it does work WORST like 50Kb/s but dmesg does NOT output anything strange.

If I take the hard drive and run it from other machine it simply works... but with realtek, not with via, because that machine doesn't have.

I googled a little but nothing clear.

So OK.. I don't know what to do, maybe this motherboard is dead and I should let it die peacefully

Here is some info:

Code:
$ ifconfig vr0
vr0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        options=8<VLAN_MTU>
        ether 00:10:dc:c8:82:3b
        inet 172.26.0.2 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 172.26.0.255
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active
It is running FreeBSD 7.0. A clean FreeBSD I didnt touch kernel or world. Nothing.

Regards and thankyou

The old gentoo installation had similar network problems?
Did you check cabling and connectors? switch/hub connected port?
The other machine tested with the same cables/connection?

Yes, the other machine was tested with the same cables to the same port in the same switch.

If the realtek nic it is not intergraded on the successfully tested machine, I think you should try installing it on the old machine and see how it operates (in case you didn't)

Regarding the old machine, it supports APIC ? If yes try to disable it from the bios and see if you have any results.

I have an integrated VIA Rhine too and had the same problems as you with FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE. I think the vr driver is poorly maintained at the moment, I'd advise you to do what I did which was to buy an Intel card.
