Hi Amer,

Could you send an "ifconfig -a" ?

It may occur if your MTU doesn't match

The network card that came with the PC (Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet) was not recognized by sysinstall. So I bought a real tek based card that works fine. But when I run dmesg, I get lots of these lines (almost 900):
rl0: discard oversize frame (ether type 0 flags 3 len 1532 > max 1514)

Can someone please advise what can be done to stop that.

I'm using FreeBSD 6.2 release.

Thanks for the reply. Here is the output of "ifconfig -a"

   inet netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast
   ether 00:e0:4c:ef:04:87
   media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
   status: active
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
   inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2
   inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
   inet netmask 0xff000000


You may try to increase your MTU by using "ifconfig rl0 mtu 1580" (for example) - Do not forget to add this option in /etc/rc.conf (for boot settings)

If it does not solve the problem, the problem could be due to your network interface and the "RL" driver itself. In that case, you have to shut down the interface and remount it, I agree that it is not a proper solution but I saw it on a newsgroup.

Hope this help!

Kind Regards.
