Hi, I am trying to set up a DSL router based on FreeBSD and in the process I need to make a PPPoE connection to the DSL modem using a USB network inter- face. The make/model is "Teledat Fast Ethernet USB". It is recognized by FreeBSD as "aue0".
With FreeBSD 4.6-RELEASE, I had the following problem: * The card worked fine when plugged in after boot and "found" by usbd, but on system shutdown or when disconnecting the card from USB, I got a lot of "usb error o rx: IOERROR" and the system hung. When booting with the card already connected, it would be detected and visible with "ifconfig" but at the first attempt of accessing it using "ppp", I got into an endless loop of "aue0: MII read timed out". With FreeBSD 5.2-RC1, the card behaves more consistently: * No matter whether you boot with the card attached or not, the first attempt of accessing it using "ppp" will always cause an endless loop of "aue0: MII read timed out". I found a message by Scott Mitchell on this list from last October (http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2003-October/021984.html) in which he suggests that a 100 Mbps network might give the driver trouble. I am on a 100 Mbps network (since I put a little 10/100 switch in between the 10 MBit DSL modem and the USB NIC), but forcing the aue0 interface to 10 MBit via "ifconfig aue0 media 10baseT/UTP" did nothing to solve the problem. Any insights are most appreciated!
