Bug Description

Since upgrading to 2.6.27-8 my ethernet connections has become very unstable. Works for about the first 1-2mins then drops out and is very unresponsive. I have to disable and re-enable to get it to work again. Best solution so far is to boot to old kernel.

Pete.

Hi Adam,

I am running a eeepc 1000HA. Nothing suspicious from the dmesg but /var/log/daemon.log has the following.

The little eeepc also has a windows license stuck to the bottom and I am wondering if that could be causing a problems too ;-)

Let me know if you need any more info.

After Installing Easy peasy 1.0 with kernel 2.6.27-8 on a eee 701 S had poor wifi reception.
Adding backport modules generic & kernel 2.6.27-14-generic the Atheros 802.11 driver was installed and signal strength and stability got much better.
Am now trying kernels 2.6.27-13-eeepc & 2.6.27-13-eeepc-lean (Intrepid proposed) and wifi reception is fair but still weaker and fluctuates more than with the generic module.
