Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: linux-backports-modules
I have a PCI BCM4318 which worked flawlessly with Hardy, with the b43 module. I didn't test it when upgrading through Intrepid to Jaunty, so the following might also affect Intrepid. WIth Jaunty it has the forever-repeating:
b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error
during which the connection becomes unresponsive, or is dropped
Strangely, linux-backports-modules-jaunty-2.6.28-11 and *-2.6.28-13 are even worse. No IP-level link at all. No ping. Route times out like there is a break in the physical layer... Also, very, very strangely, the backports-modules version of ssb and/or b43 now load the pcmcia subsystem -- when it's absolutely not needed for my NIC. This run-of-the-mill Linksys 802.11g PCI NIC isn't one of those PCMCIA/Cardbus-to-PCI adapters.
lspci -v -v reports:
02:01.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
Subsystem: Linksys Device 0042
Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B- DisINTx-
Status: Cap- 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 22
Region 0: Memory at f9800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
Kernel modules: ssb
This is wrong...I'm almost certain that it used to say that the b43
kernel driver or module was in use, in addition to the ssb.
Additionally, that "b43-pci-bridge" sounds a lot like the a module for
the type of card I don't have.
Did the PCI IDs get scrambled somewhere? Please advise which logs you
need me to post.
