Bug Description

wired network gets disconnected/timesout/packetloss after a few minutes. I can trigger it mostly, when doing "ping www.google.at" and openen "http://www.hans-georg-zojer.at" (or other websites) in firefox. Or when loading severel websites at the same time. Or when connecting to FTP-Server with Nautilus and surfing with firefox. Problem was first detected during the night of 2011-11-11 to 2011-11-12. It seems to arise from update at night of 2011-11-11 to 2011-11-12. (Or correlated with stability problems with VirtualBox. Or correlated with cpufreq/indicator-cpufreq) Network-Card seems to work under Windows 7 without problem. Maybe timing problem in linux kernel?

Short: Problem has gone away/disappeared.

Long:
This Problem did not appear on Windows, but also reproducible on Ubuntu 11.10 Live-CD (so the Linux-update could not have been responsible for this malfunction). But on the same night, when Linux update was, there was also a Windows 7 update. Some other websites with similar problems suggested disabling wake-on-lan, wake-on-key, but there was no setting in BIOS to activate/deactivate such feature (and network-boot was also disabled). But I disabled the VT-setting in BIOS (because BIOS-help said, Vanderpool Technology should be only enabled if required). After saving and rebooting, the problem was gone away on Live-CD and on Ubuntu-Installation. After reenabling VT-setting in BIOS, saving and rebooting, the network-card is still working. Maybe Windows-Update changed some system-BIOS-settings or networkcard-BIOS/firmware-settings which get lost after saving BIOS settings.

My system is: HP Pavilion dv7-6b02eg.

Hans Georg Zojer, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.

Changed in linux (Ubuntu):
status: Confirmed → Incomplete
tags: added: needs-upstream-testing

I'd subscribed to this bug while I had similar problems.
Now I want to share with you my findings that in my case similar problems came from broken network adapter.
Moveing into new NIC resolved them all. I really don't know if it's truth also in your case, but in mine it helped.
