[SOLVED] I219-V [8086:15b8] (rev 31) dropping connection on kernel 4.8.0-32

Post by Gofer83 » Sun Jan 08, 2017 7:38 am

Hello all,
anyone found a solution for constantly dropping connection of I219-V [8086:15b8] (rev 31) NIC on kernel 4.8.0-32?
Same for the second Ethernet NIC I211 [8086:1539] (rev 03) - drops the conenction rondomly.
Wifi BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03) not showing in network manager applet although the proprietary driver enabled in hardware settings section.
Checked so far:
router - OK (no other connected device has problems, two other windows os'es connections work stable with those NIC's - no drops)
Static IP - no difference
Disabled WOL - no difference
Disabled IPv6 - no difference
Changed clock from UTC to local - no difference
Changed network interfaces names to old fashioned eth's - no difference
The only one difference was on kernel 4.4.0-21 where Wireless was working without any drops, but both Ethernet NIC's dropped their connection just like now.

Any help highly appreciated! After two weeks of mining the Internet for some working solution I'am out of ideas :cry:

Re: I219-V [8086:15b8] (rev 31) dropping connection on kernel 4.8.0-32

:D SOLUTION FOUND :D

For Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03)
Original thread:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php ... roadcom-wl

Download patched driver
https://github.com/antoineco/broadcom-wl

Instructions

Broadcom Linux hybrid wireless driver (64-bit)
Re-upload from the source code found on the Broadcom 802.11 support page
Patched for Linux >= 4.7
Tested on a BCM4360-based 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (TP-LINK Archer T8E)
Prerequisites
The following kernel modules are incompatible with this driver and should not be loaded:
ssb
bcma
b43
brcmsmac

Make sure to unload (rmmod command) and blacklist those modules in order to prevent them from being automatically reloaded during the next system startup:

Code: Select all

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf 
Put there following lines:

Code: Select all

# wireless drivers (conflict with Broadcom hybrid wireless driver 'wl')
blacklist ssb
blacklist bcma
blacklist b43
blacklist
brcmsmac 


Compile and install

Manually
Build and install for the running kernel:

Code: Select all

$ make 
$ make install
$ depmod -A
$ modprobe wl 

Automatically
Using DKMS and the included dkms.conf file, one can let the operating system rebuild and install the module automatically on every new kernel installation:

Code: Select all

$ dkms add /path/to/your/downloaded/unpacked/driver
$ dkms status broadcom-wl, 6.30.223.271: added

Providing that the dkms service is enabled, the module should appear as installed in the list of modules managed by DKMS after the system boots for the first time on the new kernel:

Code: Select all

$ dkms status broadcom-wl, 6.30.223.271, 4.7.6-200.x86_64, x86_64: installed 

For Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V [8086:15b8] (rev 31)
and
Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection [8086:1539] (rev 03)


I recall, following two options were often problematic on Windows systems.
Looks like they cause same problems on Linux.

We need to:
Disable Energy Efficient Ethernet on our interfaces

Code: Select all

sudo ethtool --set-eee enp11s0 eee off 
sudo ethtool --set-eee enp0s31f6 eee off

Disable Wake On Lan (I don't need it)

Code: Select all

sudo ethtool -s enp0s31f6 wol d
sudo ethtool -s enp11s0 wol d 

Make those changes permanent (so they will work after reboot):

Code: Select all

sudo xed /etc/rc.local 
Put there following lines:

Code: Select all

sleep 10 
iwconfig wlp7s0 power off 
ethtool --set-eee enp0s31f6 eee off 
ethtool -s enp0s31f6 wol d 
ethtool --set-eee enp11s0 eee off 
ethtool -s enp11s0 wol d 
exit 0 

Now all interfaces have rock solid connection!

Some proof :D

Re: [SOLVED] I219-V [8086:15b8] (rev 31) dropping connection on kernel 4.8.0-32

Post by JeremyB » Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:44 pm

Not really any need to compile code just to use the 4.8 kernels when you need the broadcom proprietary driver

Code: Select all

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.248+bdcom-0ubuntu11_amd64.deb

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.248+bdcom-0ubuntu11_amd64.deb
The dkms versions usually create a blacklist file check ls /etc/modprobe.d/

To disable wifi power management, it is better to use

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
A recent change in network manager enables power management by default wifi powersave = 3 but changinging it to wifi powersave =2 makes it disabled by default. You might notice power management being enabled even with that command in /etc/rc.local

THX Jay, didn't know that. Will give it a go after next kernel upgrade.
