Hi, 

 

I am having like many other people disconnection (NO-CARRIER) issues on linux ubuntu 20.04 (same on the new 22.04)

Hello hans4,


Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities. 


Please provide the following information that would help in checking your query.

1. When was the issue first encountered?

2. Are there any software of hardware changes prior to issue?

3. How often does the issue occurs?

4. We noticed that you are using NVM Update Package for 700 series but it looks like your controller is an Intel Ethernet Controller I225V. Kindly confirm what is the exact model of your Ethernet Adapter?

5. Model of your Motherboard?

6. Driver version and link where the driver it was downloaded from. 


Looking forward to your reply. 


Should there be no response from you, we will follow up after 3 business days. 


Best regards,

Crisselle C.

Hi, thank you for your message. 

Here are my answers: 

1. Since the beginning, the Ethernet adapter was part of a new computer. 

2. New computer purchased. See 5. 

3. Most of the time, occasionally it would detect a link. It is not the cable, I tested. 

4. Yes, it is a I225V. I followed the guide i cited in my post, which is just using the update tool from that package. 

5.  Motherboard is a HX90: https://minixpc.com/blogs/review/minisforum-hx90

6. Using ubuntu drivers:  igc module. (22.04) 

 

thank you

Hello folks.

 

I'm trying to make mi i225-v ethernet controller in a network appliance using Ubuntu 20.04.

Although I can see the configured IP at the interface, I can not ping the other equipment in the same network.

I'm very disappointed with this issue. Can anybody help me pls??

Hello hans4,


You're welcome. Please see below details for our feedback regarding this request. 


We'd like to set your expectation that we have a limited support for Original Equipment Manufacturer(OEM) on-board Ethernet controller. Since this is an onboard controller embedded on a third party unit, it would be best if you can get in touch with your manufacturer for further support since they have customized drivers and software to enable or alter features on your system. They are in best position where you can seek assistance so you don’t lose features or customizations of the Ethernet controller.


Please also be informed that Ubuntu 20.04 is not listed as supported Operating System for this controller hence, we do not have a driver for this. You may need to check with your motherboard manufacturer if they support the same OS and if they have a available driver. Normally, the distributions of driver release should be coming from motherboard manufacturers.


Kindly check this link for the list of Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Ethernet Controllers (LOM)

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000055236/ethernet-products/gigabit-ethernet-controllers-up-to-2-5gbe.html


You may also consider using one of the supported OS from link above to further isolate the issue. 


Regarding the NVM Update Package, the package you used was for 700 Series of Intel Ethernet adapter only. Your I225-V has its own NVM package which should be provided by your manufacturer as well.


We highly suggest contacting your manufacturer for further assistance.


Feel free to let us know if you have questions or clarifications.


Awaiting to your response.


We will follow up after 3 business days in case we don't hear from you. 


Best regards,

Crisselle C.

Let me first clarify again: I have not used the 700 series driver, only the nvm update tool from this package. Another user on askubuntu used it successfully to upgrade his i225-V (see link in my first post). 

 

I checked the OVM website, and they just link to the Intel website for the i225-V driver. So it seems to be generic.  

 

If there is no way to update the nvm on Linux, I have to go through Windows.

Hello hans4,


Thank you for the response. 


We totally understand that you used the NVM Update package for 700 Series and not the driver. Unfortunately, as we mentioned, this package was only for 700 series adapter and cannot be used for different model of adapters. 


The other user you mentioned from askubuntu has listed the steps of what he did. He downloaded and used the NVM package from his manufacturer's site and only used the 700 series NVM tool to perform/apply the update. He did some configuration in able to apply the update. 


We cannot further comment on his steps but for Intel retail version of adapters, this might not be the recommend steps to apply the update. We cannot guarantee performance as this may or may not damage the controller.


For the NVM package that you'll use, please be advised that this can be obtained only from your manufacturer. We highly suggest getting in touch with them for further support since they have customized drivers and software to enable or alter features on your system. They are in best position where you can seek assistance so you don’t lose features or customizations of the Ethernet controller.

Hello hans4,


Good day!


This is just a follow up to check if you received our previous reply. If yes, please confirm and let us know if you have additional questions or clarifications. 


We are also sharing below details for the feedback from our engineers. 


As the Original Equipment Manufacturer(OEM) controls the driver, firmware and product quality, we highly suggest getting this check further with motherboard manufacturer. Our NVM update is only recommended on Intel Retail adapters and each Intel Ethernet product family has its own NVM Update Package. For LAN on Motherboard (LOM), your motherboard manufacturer can only provide the updated NVM.


Looking forward to hear from you.


Should there be no response, we will follow up after 3 business days.
