Description Peter Bieringer 2003-02-20 17:52:31 UTC
Description of problem:
After shutdown the host, the on-board NIC looses power (detected by no more lightended Link LED). Host cannot be waked up by magic cookie.

Mainboard ASUS P2B-LS with onBoard NIC:

00:07.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100] (rev 05)
        Subsystem: Intel Corp. 82558 10/100 with Wake on LAN
        Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV+ VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
        Status: Cap+ 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
        Latency: 32 (2000ns min, 14000ns max), cache line size 08
        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 7
        Region 0: Memory at e5000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]
        Region 1: I/O ports at b800 [size=32]
        Region 2: Memory at e2800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]
        Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled] [size=1M]
        Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 1
                Flags: PMEClk- DSI+ D1+ D2+ AuxCurrent=0mA PME(D0+,D1+,D2+,D3hot+,D3cold+)
                Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=0 PME-

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 2.4.18-10 with module e100 (working afair)
Kernel 2.4.18-24.7.x with module eepro100 (causing trouble)
Vanilla 2.4.20 with module eepro100 (causing trouble)
Vanilla 2.4.20 with module e100 (working well)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use eepro100 module of upper "trouble" kernel versions, perform a shutdown and watch the LEDs (LED adaptor required) and try wake-on-lan
Actual results:
NIC power is completly switched off, no chance to wake-up host

Expected results:
NIC power on wake-on-lan standby (like e100 module or e.g. Win98 does)

Additional info:
Pls. include e100 module in further kernel RPMs until this issue is fixed.
