I'm not sure you suffers from the same problem but there was a Tx checksum offload related bug in msk(4) driver and it was fixed in HEAD. How about applying the diff in CVS rev 1.33 of if_msk? http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/msk/if_msk.c.diff?r1=1.32;r2=1.33;f=h Would love to

select unified diff on the above and save it to a file, then cd /usr patch patchfilewhere patchfile is the saved file, then build as normal. 3bsd# patch if_msk.c.diff Hmm... Looks like a unified diff to me... The text leading up to this was: -- |---

Hi ALl, I have a DFI LanParty Mobo that includes Marvells 88E8052 and 88E8053 LAN IF. Using the module with 7.0 [msk] the network preformance is terrible, Opera / Links stall, or wont page load at all although pings to the router are fine? I then tried using Marvells own driver the website

I discovered that adding -txcsum and -rxcsum (i.e. disabling hardware checksuming) to the ifconfig statement, the performance was as quick as it is on that other OS! there is a lot of buggy chips produced today. normally the should go to thrash, but - what a problem - they put onto

You need to keep something in mind here: Marvell does not give out documentation for their cards publicly, so Yong-Hyeon has to reverse-engineer and tinker with what he already knows. Some hardware feature do not work, others are buggy, others work fine on specific revisions of the chip while

Purely as an example: in my Wiki, section Network devices, see the entry for the 88E8040 NIC. I'm still working with Yong-Hyeon to try to get him access to a laptop that has this chip so he can write the driver. the best solution is to not use that cards. it's producer's choice to loose some

I had a friend who used nvidia. They never complained about it. I will see if I can find out what model and how they got it to work. mine (on amd64 board, nforce3 if i remember correctly, i sold that computer) simply stopped working every 5-10 minutes until you did ifconfig nve0 down ifconfig
