Re: network stalls on Fedora Core 3

I'd like to try this. Do you know to set the speed of a network card in FC? The card that is in my computer is a 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado]

I am encountering a random problem where network (100BaseT ethernet) connections stall when downloading files. I first noticed a problem when updating my system using up2date. I discovered the update process would hang.

I am now seeing the network stalling when I am downloading a large file, roughly 41MB, using scp. The point at which it stalls is random and it doesn't always stall (but it usually does.) When it stalls, it usually stalls after 20-30MB have been transferred.

I have Fedora Core 3 installed. I had originally installed Fedora Core 2 and upgraded to 3.

I have already tried the following:

- different network cable
- different port on the switch
- different network card, including a different type of card

I even changed out the mouse from a ps/2 to a USB.

Any ideas on what could be causing this and how to correct would be really appreciated. Or ideas on where to look for troubleshooting ideas.



I've had similar problem when inexpensive switch and/or old network card
had trouble with automatic negotiation.  Got around it by selecting
specific speed, usually only possible on network card.  Usually went for
10baseT, Full Duplex--not the fastest but reliable.
