We used I210 on Arm platform.
After we plug the ethernet cable and use "ifconfig", it just show as below :
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1b:21:de:fb:eb Driver igb
inet6 addr: fe80::82fa:8654:bd5e:ca5b/64 Scope: Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 TX bytes:0
We can't get the IPv4.
In addition, when we use ethtool to do self-test, the Interrupt test will be fail. The result is as below :
The test result is FAIL
The test extra info:
Register test (offline) 0
Eeprom test (offline) 0
Interrupt test (offline) 4
Loopback test (offline) 0
Link test (on/offline) 0
Are this two issue caused by the same reason?
How could us fix it.
Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities.

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
In order to have more details that can help us to understand this situation, we want to address the following questions:
Could you please clarify if the affected device has been developed by you or it is a third-party one? Please give all the information (such manufacturer name, part number, model, and where its documentation can be found) if it is a third-party implementation. In case that it is your design, could you please clarify if it has been verify by Intel?
Could you please let us if this condition happens in a specific port or various? Please try on different ones and let us know the results if you do not know the answer to this consultation.
Could you please verify that the affected design is unrelated to the condition stated in the answer to the question 2.23, on page 9 of the Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I210/I211 Frequently Asked Questions [FAQs] document # 335346?This document can be found at:
We are waiting for your answer.
We used "Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I210-T1" and test it on Open-Q 845 Carrier Board.
Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I210-T1 :
Open-Q 845 Carrier Board : (We used it with Android 8.1)
This carrier board only has a mini PCIe port. We test "Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I210-T1" with a mini PCIe converter.
This PCIe ethernet card can work on windows PC successfully, so we thought it is unrelated to question 2.23.
Thanks for your update.
