I am working with MAC to MAC MII link in my embedded board. one end of link has MPC8569 processor (free scale) and other side has BCM68610 controller (broadcom). I am trying to ping my switch from my processor but I am not able to do so.
after doing ping, I noticed tx packet error in ifconfig output.
[root@Device ~]# ifconfig eth1 eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 76:00:00:98:74:1A inet addr:192.168.8.200 Bcast:192.168.8.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:12 errors:12 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:504 (504.0 B) Base address:0x3200
What could be the reasons for Tx packet error?
This is direct connection between processor and controller so there can not be a netweok cognition problem. from what I guess, this could be due to some configuration problem of connection but I am not able to figure that out.
This is my ethtool output.
