There was a bug filed about 7 months ago, with iwi crashing under heavy usage. I am also hitting this bug under 10-stable.
Things that trigger the bug are heavy two-way usage, such as bittorrent/aria2c and X11-forwarding over my LAN. bug#185478 The original reporter had this bug under 10.0-RELEASE, and I was under 10-stable. Took several reboots (and quite a bit of $HOME corruption as well) to track down a semi-reliable way to reproduce the bug. It does not always trigger a kernel panic, but iwi will always die with "iwi0: Firmware Error" and usually, attempting to restart netif will cause the panic. Even restarting netif will not bring the system back. I've got a urtw0 usb dongle that I can sometimes get to work after the iwi0 goes belly up, but not always.... (and for the record, I had tons of trouble with urtw0 back in 9-current, and it was -never- made stable for me...) With that said, however, iwi0 seems to be perfectly stable under OpenBSD and various Linux distros, which makes me wonder if A) do we need a different firmware version? or B) is there a problem with our implementation of the driver? I'm happy to provide as much more information as I can (I'm currently not running FreeBSD on this machine, but that is easily, and quickly remedied if anyone wants to attempt a fix with me) Thanks, Chuck Burns _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-wireless To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-wireless-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
