LAN card problem

By CyberGod ·
When I configure my NIC and reboot my freeBSD box, kernel gives me a message like ed1: device timeout. What thoes it means?
And when I ping, my local IP (192.168.0.101) it's OK, but if I ping other local IP then it gives me /kernel: ed1: device timeout and
Host is down.

LAN card problem

by cpfeiffe In reply to LAN card problem

I've never dealt with FreeBsd, but I've seen this on Solaris and AIX or at least a similiar issue. Just because you can ping the IP address of the card doesn't mean it is working properly. Most people think that is how you test the card, but that is not true. That only tells you that the interface on your server is up. Some flavors of Unix will configure an interface at boot-up if the card is not properly seated and some won't. I'm not sure how FreeBsd handles this, but it might be worth acouple of minutes to make sure the card is properly connected again. Then you might want to look for driver updates or patches for this type or card.

Hope some of this helps.
