Missing NICs eth2-eth4?


(xbgmsharp) #21

my network support 1Gbps/Full. it is funny the main NIC is 1G but not the lan NIC whic are detected in 10/Full and 100/Full.

eth0 (=cpu-port) is afaik fixed to 1GBs in dts(i)

lan0-4 have variable bandwidth (Auto-Neg/OS-Setting), you see in your ethtool, that 1G is also supported:

Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                        100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
                        1000baseT/Full 
Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                        100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 
                        1000baseT/Full 

i don’t known why a fallback speed is used, on my switch 1G is used on lan0

as you see

Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Link partner advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 
                                     100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 

your switch on the other end supports only 10/100Mbit (handled over auto-neg) :wink: or maybe cable, etc…

OK will check might be on my side. The good news with your kernel i can see all 5 NICs, so thanks.


(Frank W.) #24

it’s not my work…the dsa-support was working before in 4.14…


(Brian Zimmer) #25

ok excuse my limited knowledge… whats the link to your 4.14 kernel from github and how exactly do you copy over the old kernel?

first things first i guess where is your github link and ill try to google the how to

You’ll find all info in my wiki

Installation: https://www.fw-web.de/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:bpi-r2:kernel#compiled_414x

I mainly use build.sh to copy kernel to sdcard because i can define name of binary in boot and this makes backup of existing kernel.

If you want to use different names you have to make sure that your new kernel gets loaded by set kernel var to name of your Kernel-binary. If you use my last uboot there are multiple kernel-vars and you can define own menu-entries (needs reload bootmenu before they appear).
