Armbian: Ethernet port goes down shortly after successful configuration.
#1
Hi,

I am having trouble with Ethernet port on Pine H64 B. When I connect it to a GigE port on a switch, it goes get configured correctly, speed and and address, but quit quickly link goes down and there is no way to resurrect. Vert frustrating. I have yet to try a new kernel, but I am using latest GA of Armbian.

Linux pineh64 5.10.21-sunxi64 #21.02.3 SMP Mon Mar 8 00:45:13 UTC 2021 aarch64 GNU/Linux

These are the errors I see in the dmesg log (journalctl -k).

I will see if I can get a later kernel and try that but, however, in the meantime if someone who knows how to fix this, please let  me know.

Have you tried disabling hardware rx/tx offloading?
