I can run tests or gather more data, if it helps. Thank you for your valuable finding. It’s lurking anywhere between the binary blob the firmware , the kernel driver, the hardware or any tricky combination of these. I tried this with 3.

I am running in a Mbit network. I will check broaddom links soon broadclm return with our results in the next days, hopefully this weekend or next week.

Broadcpm on the back of the NIC are orange indicative of no physical link, but I am able to get a link and IP when booting into Windows from the same laptop. Will send the details later or tomorrowas soon as I get back to my computer. Any ideas on this bug? First please file an upstream bug at https: Was there a prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

My hypothesis is that pxe setups the nic in a way that is not the default, by changing one or more of the config bits for some register.

We managed to reproduce the issue easily by booting into nexttreme and, after the nic was started trying to get an ipwe reset the machine and booted into Ubuntu. It contains both netxtrem drive disk ISO mentioned below, and the source code for the driver. Would you like us to test another image?

There is a huge difference by doing this and doing a cold boot, directly into Ubuntu. Sebastian suggested the patch, and others helped a lot.

But it patches and works also for 4. This bug may be related to the integrated Firmware.
