    HELP!! connection breaking down every 30s


    Please help me, I don't know what I can do. When I connect to the Internet, i.e. with emerge, I can download files for a certain period of time, and then it breaks down (~ 30s after the first download).
    Only a reboot helps, up/down with ifconfig doesn't show any success.

    The thing: When I had it configured during setup with net-setup, it worked - but not in the configuration in conf.d/net, or in dhcpcd etc.

    PLEASE... I have to finish it by Monday, and I'd be very pleased if one could help me!!
    thousand thanks in advance!! ))

    The only thing

    Hi, the only thing I can find is the following:

    localhost hda: dma_timer_expiry_ dma status == 0x24
    localhost hda: DMA interrupt recovery
    localhost hda: lost interrupt

    The messages before are OK.

    check to disable dma for the hard drive..if you're using suse use yast2 to configure it.although i don't really think that it causes problem to the internet connection...

    You're right and I'm sorry.... this problem just turns up every start, I didn't see it once and thought this had to do sth. with the internet.
    Hm, what can then be the cause for that nasty problem? How can I turn up net-setup again?


    [update]As to say: With the ISOLINUX from the Live-CD everything works fine, but not with the final installation. The hardware is surely not the reason, because with Microshit everything works fine.[/update]

    thanks

    since your using gentoo, this means you did a custom kernel compile, did you include support for your networking device, if a generic driver is being used, then that might be contributing.

    8139too

    Yes, I included 8139too since this was my driver. Furthermore, I included nothing special.
    It didn't matter whether I compiled it into the kernel or as a module.

    you can check it with make xconfig in /usr/src/linux-version (if it is loaded as module or compiled into kernel)
