Question 3CCFE575BT: eth0: transmit timed out 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 20
From: Matthew Hebert mlhebert

I've been having problems with my 3CCFE575BT in a Dell Latitude CP (M233ST). I'm running the Mandrake 6.1 distribution (Kernel 2.2.13-7mdk), without any kernel modifications. Everything works well, except that every so often the ethernet device apparently becomes overloaded and crashes with the message:
  eth0: transmit timed out

As I understand it, this is a problem that can surface if a large amount of network i/o is done in a short period of time.

Is there a fix for this problem? I'd rather not upgrade the kernel if I can help it because I am in the middle of a project that requires close to 100% uptime.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt
